Building Your Observability Practice with Tools that Co-exist

A lot of product marketing is about telling people to throw away what they have in favor of something entirely new. Sometimes that is the right answer--sometimes what you have has completely outlived its usefulness and you need to put something better in its place--but a lot of the time, what's realistic is to make incremental improvements.

If you've been tasked with starting, or growing your observability practice, it may seem a long journey from here to there. Ripping out your entire metrics toolset at once and migrating to something new only makes sense if your organization has spent a lot of time preparing for a major migration. And in the case of most major toolset changes, this means preparing to make the technical, process, and cultural changes needed to get the most benefit.

If only you had the time, money, and bandwidth to enact such wide-sweeping changes!

But you can make good progress toward your observability goals without tremendous upheaval to your team or your business--what you need is a tool that co-exists with the rest of your workflow.

Find out how LaunchDarkly, Intercom, Geckoboard, and other teams use Honeycomb alongside their existing tooling to achieve observability so you can apply what they've learned:
