Blueprint Series: The Complete Guide to Observability

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

14:00-15:00 BST

SPEAKERS:Yoann Lechevallier, Lightstep | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Easy-to-understand monoliths are giving way to distributed systems: microservices, serverless, meshes, and proxies in every possible combination. These systems offer developers the freedom to build new features and technology faster, as they are no longer beholden to the elaborate release processes associated with monolithic architecture.

But, like all good things, there is a price: distributed systems are inherently difficult to operate and maintain. When something breaks—which it invariably will—how can you quickly comb through the myriad dependencies? How can you separate good hypotheses from bad ones?

Learn how observability helps developers understand multi-layered architectures: what’s slow, what’s broken, and what needs to be done to improve performance.

14:00-15:00 BST

SPEAKERS:Mike Ferguson, Intelligent Business Strategies | Ciaran Doyle, Looker | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

With multiple analytical systems now being implemented in organisations, a major challenge is how to empower end users not only to leverage these systems and be able to connect to data within them, but also to enable them to invoke analytical assets they create such as machine learning models and graph analytics. Industry Analyst Mike Ferguson explores how this can be done from within mainstream self-service BI tools using a combination of historical business intelligence together with real-time alerts, recommendations and predictions in BI reports and dashboards. Joining Mike will be Ciaran Doyle from data visualisation experts Looker and Andy Steed, from Big Data LDN.
