Leveraging observability to better understand your cloud environment

Observability is the new buzzword in cloud, and many people confuse it with monitoring, but it’s so much more. In this episode, Mike Kavis talks with Erez Barak, VP of Product Development at Sumo Logic, about observability—what it is, how it helps organizations deal with cloud complexity, and how it's helped by (and helps) AI. To implement observability successfully, however, a new IT operating model that removes silos and fosters collaboration is absolutely essential.


Observability is thinking about that [cloud] environment, thinking about the applications we build in that environment, and providing a view into them.

Erez Barak is Vice President of Product Development at Sumo Logic. Prior to Sumo Logic, Erez was part of the Microsoft Azure team working on the AI platform and managing the Azure Machine Learning service. 


Utilize observability for more effective DevOps

Cloud applications are complex, and old monitoring methods don't catch all potential design flaws. Instead, it's critical to use observability to catch problems, and solve them, before they impact the user.
