BOSTON -- JULY 25, 2023 -- Checkly, the leading provider of monitoring solutions powered by a Monitoring as Code (MaC) workflow, today announced it was recognized for Monitoring as Code (MaC) in two Gartner Hype Cycle reports: Hype Cycle for Monitoring and Observability, July 10, 2023 and Hype Cycle for Site Reliability Engineering, July 17, 2023. We believe this acknowledgment underscores Checkly's commitment to innovation and its leadership role in the MaC movement.
Earlier this year, Checkly launched their enhanced MaC enabled by their Command Line Interface (CLI), further enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of their monitoring processes. Already adopted by hundreds of users, the Checkly CLI is enabling teams around the world to code, test, and deploy their testing and synthetic monitoring setup in a single workflow, demonstrating Checkly's ongoing innovation.
"We see Checkly's inclusion in both Gartner Hype Cycle reports and the rapid adoption of our CLI validates our commitment to providing innovative solutions that help businesses ensure a consistent, efficient approach to monitoring that is natively made for modern DevOps and SRE teams," said Hannes Lenke, co-founder and CEO of Checkly. "In today's world of continuous delivery and frequent deployments, MaC has become imperative to modern enterprises. Our platform, now enhanced with our CLI, allows Engineering teams to automate their monitoring setup from their repository, reduce the risk of missed alerts, and support high-velocity deployments."
The Gartner Hype Cycle provides a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are relevant to solving real business problems while also exploiting new opportunities. The Hype Cycles for Monitoring and Observability and Site Reliability Engineering illustrate what are considered the most relevant innovations for technology leaders to adopt and put in place and rated MaC as providing a high level of benefit.
"Administering multiple monitoring checks with a UI can be tedious, and comes with the risk for significant errors. In a short period, we managed to migrate our checks to be provisioned with the new Checkly CLI and integrated Checkly's testing, as well as deployment into a GitHub Action,” said Tobias Deekens, Remote Principal Engineer at commercetools. “Not only has the check administration become easier, but more people feel empowered to add and edit more checks, which has ultimately improved our monitoring efforts."
Checkly's approach to MaC, including the CLI, is founded on the company’s three key pillars: Code, Test, and Deploy. This approach allows teams to code their monitoring on their local machine, test their preview deployments in CI, and monitor in production. It's a code-first workflow that integrates seamlessly with the modern DevOps and SRE toolchains, enabling teams to collaborate, share, optimize, and increase the velocity of monitoring configurations.
