The Director's Guide to Observability: Leveraging OpenTelemetry in Complex Systems
The 21st century has been defined by software, and by those who are responsible for it. The rapid pace of innovation in software design, development, and deployment has enabled teams to build faster, more responsive, and more differentiated software than ever before.
However, this innovation has not come for free. Every abstraction we build, every platform we adopt, and every dependency we rely on increases the complexity of our software systems. It is this complexity that forms the core of the greatest challenges facing engineering teams, and software organizations, today.
It’s no surprise that managing this complexity has become the single biggest priority of software organizations. Observability—a practice that provides teams with a way to ask fact-finding questions of their data, pursue leads, and generally explore anything and everything that’s occurring during an incident—is a foundational requirement to solve for all of these challenges, and without it, you will invariably fail.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:
- Why observability is the foundation of complex systems
- What the building blocks of observability are
- How observability and OpenTelemetry work together
- What to do if you don’t use OpenTelemetry
