Monitor JavaScript console logs and user activity with Datadog

Monitoring backend issues is critical for ensuring that requests are handled in a timely manner, and validating that your services are accessible to users. But if you’re not tracking client-side errors and events to get visibility into the frontend, you won’t have any idea how often these issues prompt users to refresh the page—or worse, abandon your website altogether.


Why Context is Critical in a Data-Driven World

Research firm IDC predicts that overall data volumes will grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes by 2025. 50% of the data will come from IoT devices and nearly 30% of the data will get consumed in real-time by 2025. The data economy has changed the game on how enterprises will need to work with digital technologies to become more effective, competitive, and innovative.


Which is the Best CMS?

It’s never been easier to create your own website, or to start selling your products online. There is a wide range of Content Management Systems (CMS) for you to choose from, each offering its own unique set of features and functionality.

But as I am sure you are aware, there is more than one way to monitor an application. Approaching monitoring from a different angle can be a powerful way of gaining new insights. If all you did was watch for high response times or areas of memory bloat, then you might overlook something far more simple: the user’s general level of satisfaction.


What Is MTTR? A Simple Definition That Will Help Your Team

Mean time to resolution (MTTR) is defined as the sum of the total amount of time that service was interrupted divided by the number of individual incidents. The unit of measurement is some quantity of time. Ideally, you can use minutes as the unit. That is, unless you blacked out the eastern seaboard for weeks!
