The Top 5 Best Practices for Unlocking Observability and Automation in the Cloud

As organizations accelerate cloud strategies and adopt cloud-native technologies, applications, and the cloud infrastructure they run on promise dynamic elasticity, but guarantee extreme complexity. Out of necessity, the industry has seen a massive shift from APM to observability—and likewise, a need to turn insights into continuous cloud automation. Join us as we unpack what exactly these trends mean for the technologies you should invest in, the business value you can expect from the cloud, and the new mindsets required for operational excellence. Brought to you by IBM Instana and IBM Turbonomic, you will learn:
  • What is required to instantly gain an understanding of your digital business environment.
  • How real-time observability combined with continuous cost optimization can help you meet your cloud efficiency goals without risking performance.
  • How to harness the power of observability and operationalize that automation to dynamically tune your applications, services, and infrastructure for lasting business value in the cloud.
Come with questions, leave with ideas. We look forward to seeing you!
