Unlock Comprehensive Observability and Accelerate Digital Transformation with IBM Instana

Share This Post

In the era of cloud-native applications and distributed architectures, businesses are grappling with unprecedented complexity in their IT environments. The proliferation of microservices, containers, Kubernetes orchestration, and serverless functions has introduced a new level of intricacy that traditional monitoring tools struggle to handle effectively.

This modern application landscape is characterized by high degrees of interdependency, where a single user request can traverse multiple services, platforms, and underlying infrastructure components. As a result, it becomes increasingly challenging to gain end-to-end visibility, correlate data across different domains, and swiftly pinpoint the root cause of performance issues or disruptions.

The Challenges of Fragmented Monitoring

Traditionally, IT operations have relied on a patchwork of specialized monitoring tools, each focused on a specific layer of the technology stack. This siloed approach leads to fragmented visibility, data overload, and a lack of context – ultimately hindering teams’ ability to troubleshoot and optimize application performance proactively.

Furthermore, the segregation of responsibilities between DevOps, engineering, and business teams can create organizational silos that impede collaboration and knowledge-sharing, which are essential for effective observability practices.

The Observability Imperative

In this complex digital landscape, observability has emerged as a critical capability for organizations to ensure optimal performance, resilience, and customer experiences. Observability goes beyond traditional monitoring by providing deep insights into the state and behavior of distributed systems, enabling teams to quickly identify, diagnose, and resolve issues before they escalate.

However, achieving true observability requires a holistic approach that unifies data from diverse sources across the application landscape, correlates insights, and presents a comprehensive view of the entire technology stack – from the user experience down to the underlying infrastructure and third-party dependencies.

Real-World Success with IBM Instana

The power of IBM Instana’s observability capabilities is demonstrated by the remarkable success story of Dealerware, a leading fleet management solution provider. Facing exponential growth, Dealerware needed to ensure top-notch application performance and low latency to support their expanding customer base.

By adopting IBM Instana, Dealerware gained the ability to monitor, observe, and manage all of their environments from a single control plane. The results were transformative – Dealerware reduced delivery latency by a staggering 98%, going from 10 minutes to just 10-12 seconds, and are now driving towards an ambitious latency goal of under 250 milliseconds.

As Kenneth Skertchly, Senior DevOps Engineer at Dealerware, attested, “It’s great to have something to trace the root of the problem at the infrastructure view. Instana has provided insights into issues I wasn’t aware of.”
