Application Monitoring in the Enterprise: Frustration, Pain, and Hope

Presented by

Mike Julian, CEO, Duckbill Group

About this talk

Improving application monitoring platform in a large enterprise is no easy feat: it's ripe with pitfalls, gotchas, and comes with plenty of frustrating aspects that smaller companies don't often experience. Seemingly simple questions around "Who gets paged for this?" can turn into a week's worth of meetings, and never mind coming to consensus around what tools you should be using. Join Mike Julian, author of O'Reilly's Practical Monitoring and Editor/Analyst at Monitoring Weekly, on June 11th at 9am Pacific as he shares advice from people who have led an overhaul of monitoring systems in large companies, as well as his own experiences. When you attend, you will hear about: - Why monitoring in an enterprise is so difficult -Understanding the *real* pains your internal customers are experiencing - How to get buy-in (and budget!) for your major changes - Designing a platform architecture that won't lead to frustration six months in ... Mike Julian is the CEO of The Duckbill Group, a consultancy helping companies lower their AWS bills. When he's not wondering what he's gotten himself into, Mike is the host of the Real World DevOps Podcast and editor/analyst at Monitoring Weekly. He wrote Practical Monitoring (O'Reilly), a book about actionable ways to improve your monitoring. He was previously an SRE/DevOps Engineer/system administrator for companies such as Taos Consulting, Peak Hosting, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and many more. Mike is originally from Knoxville, TN (Go Vols!) and currently resides in Portland, OR.
