What exactly is the Data Age? Well, there is no single definition of what this means - but my interpretation is that it refers to the fact that data can now be used as a foundation for decision making in every department of every business. And with the volume of data generated forecast to continue to grow exponentially up until 2025 according to IDC, the possibilities for using data to drive informed decision making are only going to increase.

With the acceleration of customer and business demands, site reliability engineers and IT Ops analysts now require operational visibility into their entire architecture, something that traditional APM tools, dev logging tools, and SRE tools aren’t equipped to provide. Observability enables you to inspect and understand your IT stack; but what is it, and how does it differ from IT monitoring?
