The constant market fluctuation of today’s business environment spells constantly shifting business requirements and focus. In order to stay on top of those changes, software engineering and operations management introduced Agile methodologies to provide rapid feedback cycles and the chance to innovate while keeping up with changing requirements. While business requirements are relatively easy to take into consideration, system requirements and architectural complexity is not.

Enterprise Observability tools can shed light on components of a system that need to be optimized, extended, or scaled, to keep up with requirements, before end users are impacted. Combined with Agile methodologies to keep on top of technical baggage and stay swift when iterating at rapid speeds, the insight provided by Enterprise Observability can be invaluable. Better Enterprise Observability ultimately benefits the whole stack of an organization from developers, Dev/ITOps, to management and end users. This session will examine the relationship between Agility and Observability and how Agility can be increased with superior Observability. Sharpen your Agility by Observability.
