Demystifying Service-to-Service Interactions

Presented by

Dennis Chu, Director of Product Marketing at LightStep

About this talk

Building microservices at the scale of InVision, the leading product design collaboration platform, leads to complex architectures. No single engineer has a complete map in their head of service-to-service interactions. It’s too complex and is constantly changing which makes pinpointing the root cause of application performance issues a challenge. In this session, you’ll learn: ● Why 13 teams at InVision replaced New Relic with LightStep ● How InVision was able to move beyond monitoring individual services and gain visibility into service-to-service interactions to reduce MTTR ● Why identifying and visualizing new service dependencies became a critical step in the development process ● How InVision was able to improve application performance by 75%
