When it comes to using (desktop) software, especially in tech, there's always that icebreaker you can use to determine whether a prospect is a more "visual" or a more "textual" user. It’s definitely not a black-or-white debate, but it's always interesting to see just how differently we’re wired as individuals at a cognitive level. In this blog post, we'll assume you lean towards being a more "visual" type of person.

As modern applications and IT infrastructures become increasingly complex, the need for effective monitoring and management tools has never been more critical. Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is a comprehensive approach that provides visibility into application performance, availability, and user experience. APM is an important tool for platform engineers and developers who are tasked with ensuring that applications run smoothly and efficiently and meet end-user needs.

Once upon a time, in a tech company, an engineering team had the freedom to independently deploy updates and new features to a Kubernetes cluster. This autonomy helped speed up development but also led to unforeseen issues with resource management. The platform team responsible for maintaining the cluster's health noticed an increase in orphaned Persistent Volumes (PV), a piece of plug-in storage independent of other Kubernetes cluster pods.

If you’re in banking, you know the drill. Adhering to stringent EU regulations is a standard practice. This involves undergoing extensive audits, closely managing IT assets, maintaining your CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability) rating, conducting and responding to fire drills, and establishing continuity plans. So far, nothing new, and if you’re in other highly regulated environments, you know that these measures are commonplace.

StackState had a blast at this year's KubeCon + CloudNativeCon gathering in Paris! The discussions were in-depth, covering a wide array of topics and lasting much longer than in the past. This year, attendees seemed to have a considerably deeper understanding of the cloud-native ecosystem, probably attributed to its rapid growth. We also noticed a pretty dramatic evolutionary shift in the vendors at the expo hall, who were showcasing some truly progressive specialized solutions.

A 3-Step Approach for Gaining Control in Fast-Moving IT Landscapes The ever increasing complexity in your IT landscape is diminishing your company's productivity. As a response, many teams use 'observability' to get control over the fast-moving IT landscapes. However, when IT incidents strike, actionable insights to resolve incidents instantly are still siloed. Traditional observability is falling short and still too siloed. In this white paper, you will learn how you can improve traditional observability and find the right strategy to prevent outages and crush your MTTR.

According to a survey by Enterprise Management Associates, most enterprises find it difficult to find the right monitoring strategy to manage their environments. At the same time, over 65% of enterprises have more than 10 monitoring tools. These monitoring tools run as siloed solutions to support specific needs for different teams.
