Three key takeaways:
- Enterprises are undergoing digital transformation. Business demands based on financial pressures necessitate this revolution. This new perspective drives the teams responsible for developing and maintaining IT infrastructure to embrace the inevitable, become more agile and better manage change
- Enterprise IT infrastructure configurations are numerous, complex, and fraught with risk. The rapidity and frequency of configuration change, and the context and content of those changes all contribute to making managing configuration change one of the most challenging problems for infrastructure and operations teams to regularly deal with in today’s hybrid or multi-cloud deployments
- There is a solution to better understand your infrastructural complexity and configuration state: four-dimensional (4D) observability. Observability has become a common claim for vendors who focus on the symptoms of problems once they have already occurred, using telemetry from traces, logs, and metrics. However, this can be drastically improved upon by increasing the scope of monitoring to provide early detection of granular configuration changes and the risk they may impose on stability, security or compliance.
