The State of Observability 2021: Best Practices to Implement Today

The global ‘State of Observability 2021’ report recently published by Splunk and ESG Research reveals IT leaders’ early investments in observability improve performance, customer experiences — and the bottom line.

Observability is obviously a good thing - there’s a lot that can go wrong with increasingly complex hybrid IT systems, and being able to both understand and remediate problems is essential. But like exercise, there’s a big range between the occasional brisk walk and regularly running a marathon. So we set out to answer two questions: What does a strong, high-level observability practice look like? And does it actually deliver meaningful results?

This fireside chat will cover the key findings from this latest report, and explore the best ways to implement and use observability today. Join us to learn:
- The current level of observability maturity across Europe
- Key findings about observability benefits and negative outcomes
- How observability increases innovation, customer satisfaction and more
- The four steps to better observability according to observability leaders

  • Best Practices for Multicloud Monitoring & Investigation Recorded: Oct 13 2021 40 mins
    Nicolette Graham, IT Product Marketing; Nate Smalley, Technical Interlock Dir; Chris Crocco, Cloud Consult Engineer, Splunk
    83% of organizations are looking for new monitoring approaches to handle today’s cloud complexity. IT teams are challenged with monitoring cloud services and mission-critical applications by separate tools which lead to swivel chair approaches, runaway costs, and fragmented operational data getting trapped in siloed tools. This creates blind spots that halt teams’ ability to quickly detect and resolve issues, and negatively impacts customer experiences.

    What if there was a way to unify monitoring and investigation across the entire cloud stack? Wouldn’t the jobs of cloud architects and system administrators be so much easier if there were consolidated views enabling faster mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR)? Splunk is helping organizations across the globe accelerate their cloud journey with its analytics-driven, multicloud monitoring solution.

    Watch our webinar, "Best Practices for Multicloud Monitoring & Investigation" where you’ll learn:

    - Top trends in the market to maximize IT performance with a multicloud monitoring strategy
    - What capabilities organizations need to look out for when choosing the right tools
    - How to best optimize hybrid and multicloud management
    - How Splunk helps organizations tackle cloud complexity challenges
  • SOC Maturity-Understanding and Determining the Right Level for Your Organization Recorded: Oct 12 2021 60 mins
    Matthias Maier (EMEA Security Product Marketing Director at Splunk) and Marco Eggerling (Security Advisor at Splunk)
    Agility and speed of digital attacks are the biggest hurdles a SOC team can face today. Mitigating cyber threats is often only partially possible as new devices, applications, services and service providers are added to the enterprise landscape daily - constantly creating brand new attack surfaces.

    Increasing an organisation's IT security operations maturity level to expand cyber defence capabilities is inevitable in the age of digitalisation. Over 50% of companies with more than 2,500 employees have already taken this step, with 72% of them only doing so in the last 5 years. Many start with security monitoring, laying the foundations for increased IT risk visibility - but what comes after that, and how do you continue to ‘level up’?

    Join us as we think outside of the box on how to rank and grow your cyber defense capabilities. The session will cover:

    - How to define maturity levels in cybersecurity operations
    - A comparison of different maturity models, diving into advantages and disadvantages
    - A ‘Practice Maturity Check’ on establishing readiness and the effective use of SIEM/Security Analytics
    - A ‘Practice Maturity Check’ on evaluating SOAR as the right solution and how to get started

  • Fight Fraud with Data: How States Can Confront Unemployment Insurance (UI) Abuse Recorded: Sep 29 2021 61 mins
    Joe Beck, Division of Information Technology, New Jersey | Juliana Vida, Splunk | Dan Lohrmann, Center for Digital Government
    Unemployment claims skyrocketed over the past year, as millions of Americans lost their jobs during the pandemic. Sadly, as the number of claims rose, so did instances of unemployment insurance benefits fraud. These cases have resulted in billions of dollars lost. In California alone, officials reported more than $11 billion in improper payments in the first nine months of the pandemic. And these fraudulent claims aren’t just costly – they add complications and delays to already-overwhelmed state benefits systems that ultimately affect regular citizens who are out of work. Each state provides a critical lifeline for individuals and it's incredibly important that these systems perform well and detect fraudulent activity immediately.

    How can states fight fraud? With better access to data. More comprehensive information on identity and behavior will help stem the tide of fraudulent claims.

    Join us for an in-depth discussion on how states can get a handle on waste, fraud and abuse in your unemployment insurance benefits program. Our panel of public officials and industry leaders will cover a range of topics, including:

    · How unemployment insurance benefits fraud has impacted states during the pandemic
    · How better access to data can help address gaps in state unemployment systems
    · How your state can build on and mature its fraud strategy

  • The 5R's: Strategy For Application Modernization & Migration to Google Cloud Recorded: Sep 14 2021 43 mins
    Stephane Estevez, EMEA Director of Product Marketing, IT Markets, Splunk
    So you’re up to speed on what the cloud is and why it’s the right move for your business. Now comes the how - and spoiler alert, there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

    Many organizations are moving towards a multi-cloud or hybrid approach in the hopes of performance optimization, cost savings, and flexibility. Although achievable, this trend comes with various challenges in gaining visibility for monitoring, cost control and securing an organization's infrastructure, data and applications. So it’s important to implement the right migration strategy, in the right way, for your business.

    To help, this session will dissect the 5 different strategies for cloud migration and application modernization; Rehost, Refactor, Revise, Rebuild, Replace. We’ll walk through how to implement each one, review their pros and cons, and highlight the potential challenges if the time comes to combine them. Join us to explore:

    - Everything you need to know about “The 5 Rs” in order to select the right one(s) for your migration
    - The new challenges IT practitioners face from ‘Digital Transformation’ events such as Observability, Distributed Tracing, Service Monitoring, Business Insights and AIOps
    - How Splunk can help you migrate, manage and secure your workloads for on-prem (or existing cloud) to Google Cloud(s) such as GCP or Google Workspace
  • 'Rethink IT' Series, Session One: New World, New Imperatives Recorded: Sep 10 2021 97 mins
