How the LGTM Stack changed the observability culture at Wise Payments
The observability team at Wise Payments – Europe’s leader in cross-border money transfers – had long provided the company’s developers access to a multitude of tools.
But as costs and complexity increased, Ibukun Itimi, Engineering Lead for Observability and Andrew Brown, Reliability Squad Lead, saw an opportunity to change not only the tools they were using, but also the observability culture.
In this session, Ibukun and Andrew highlight how the Grafana LGTM Stack empowered their team to become more product-focused and shift from being external tool wranglers to providing in-house observability expertise.
