Increasingly, the speed and scale of a business can be measured by the resilience and performance of its applications. That’s why organizations are opting to modernize legacy applications by rewriting them using cloud-native tools and platforms. A Gartner study found that by 2025, cloud-native platforms will be the foundation for more than 95% of new digital initiatives, compared to less than 40% in 2021.

Perhaps the most defining trends of the 2020s so far have been abrupt change and mixed signals. IT spending is no different. A mere 3 years ago, COVID-19 swept the globe and thought leaders were calling for the start of a “new normal” and predicted that life on Earth would never be the same – and a major component of that change would be a move to remote-first and digital-everything.

For many IT organizations, having complete end-to-end visibility of their IT assets as well as a comprehensive understanding of integrations, dependencies and changing statuses is an ideal position rather than a reality. This is especially true for organizations with legacy on-premises systems spread across many environments. Those that were cloud native or successfully migrated to the cloud had the privilege of cloud tools to visualize individual environments.

As we at Splunk accelerate our cloud journey, we’re often faced with the decision of when to use logs vs metrics — a decision many in IT face. On the surface, one can do a lot by just observing logs and events. In fact, in the early days of Splunk Cloud, this is exactly how we observed everything. As we continue to grow, however, we find ourselves using a combination of both. This post lays out the overall difference in logs and metrics and when to best utilize each.

If there is one thing organizations can take away from the past few years, it's that they are far more vulnerable than they could realize before. From pandemics to critical supply shortages to widespread data breaches and natural disasters, businesses that don’t have plans in place to handle and respond to emergencies are at tremendous risk. As leaders plan for inevitable crises and disruption, interest in business resilience and continuity grows.

When monitoring your application performance or troubleshooting an issue in production, context is key. The more information available, the faster the prevention of or detection of a user impacting issue. Observability tools offer many different features, like code profiling, to help contextualize your data. In this post, I’ll discuss what code profiling is and show an example of how it works.

On November 16, 2022, I sat down with analyst KellyAnn Fitzpatrick from RedMonk to discuss my favorite topic: observability. This time, we looked at observability in a context of what to do and what to avoid doing as you’re starting and going on an observability journey. Click the image below (or here) for a replay of the session. A machine-generated transcript is available at the end of the post.

A hybrid infrastructure brings business benefits but it also brings new challenges. Migrating workloads to the cloud is a complex operation that generates more data than engineering teams can adequately manage. Traditional monitoring tools are limited in helping teams find and fix problems during and after a cloud migration. This can throw business strategies off course, limit customer value and hurt the bottom line.

Gaining insights from your data requires more than collecting and analyzing metrics and logs. 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?

Most IT organizations have adopted event management as a central practice to help find and fix what's broken, but today's tools focus on managing the volume of events-they do not deliver service context. Without context, you are ill-equipped to focus on the right problem at the right time. What you need is something different-something that makes IT events less eventful and more insightful-and now, you can finally do it!
