DataOps Day 2023 - Optimizing Observability Spend: Metrics (accepted)

On August 16, from 09:00 - 15:00 ET, Techstrong is putting on a free virtual event called DataOps Day 2023 and I've been invited to share insights into optimizing your cloud native observability spend. 

As they state on the event site in the introduction, data is the crown jewels of an organization, empowering companies to make informed business decisions, improve operations, reduce costs and increase revenue. Organizations are increasingly adopting DataOps to get full visibility and control of their data pipeline, boost efficiency and quality of data, fuel digital transformation initiatives and maximize business value.

At DataOps Day, you'll be able to take a deep dive into the world of data and DataOps. Register for free to join this online event to hear from data and business leaders who have adopted DataOps to achieve their goals for quality, security and speed.

Let's take a look at the details of my session.

O11y Architecture - Financial Calculations Example

Cloud native technology has been changing the way payment services are architected. In 2020 I presented a series with insights from real implementations adopting open source and cloud native technology to modernize payment services. 

The series consisted of six articles and covered architectural diagrams from logical, schematic, to detailed views of the various  use cases uncovered. 

The architectures presented were based on open source cloud native technologies, such as containers, microservices, and a Kubernetes based container platform. The major omission in this series was to avoid discussing any aspect of cloud native observability. This series will take a look at fixing that omission with an open source standards based cloud native observability platform that helps DevOps teams control the speed, scale, and complexity of a cloud native world for their financial payments architecture.

The part one introduction covered the baseline architecture, defined the payments project, and shared the planning for this series in adding observability to the logical and physical architectures. Part two explored the common architectural elements needed when adding cloud native observability to your financial payments solutions. Part three discussed a physical architecture view of a financial payments example sharing insights into how to deploy your cloud native observability at scale. 

In this article we'll walk through a financial calculations physical architecture, exploring how to add scalable cloud native observability and laying out the various deployment options you have for your financial calculations observability solution.
