Changes in software have been extensive over the last half-a-decade beginning with agile which have led to a rampant use of microservices and are beginning to change the data center with containers. Together we will try to answer the following questions: What is changing with software and why? What challenges are faced with these changes? How can we overcome these challenges?

Changes in software have been extensive over the last half-a-decade beginning with agile which have led to rampant use of microservices and are beginning to change the data center with containers. Providing assurance and managing these operationally are a major challenge, the technologies are still evolving. The problem is there are a lot of moving parts in these designs, this makes assuring performance complex especially if the services are geographically distributed or provided by multiple third parties. Most open source monitoring tools do not handle end to end transactional monitoring, but focus on component microservice and container instances. These tools are evolving to handle distributed environments. We will outline what needs to be built in terms of data extraction, analytics, and other open source technologies:

  • What is changing with software and why?
  • What challenges are faced with these changes?
  • How to overcome these challenges
