Agents of Transformation 2021: The rise of full-stack observability

How technologists can manage soaring IT complexity by connecting full-stack observability with business context.


In 2020, technologists implemented innovation projects at break-neck speed as their organizations reacted to the global COVID-19 pandemic. As a consequence, many IT teams are now managing an IT landscape fraught with new challenges, overwhelming data noise and crippling complexity. How they respond to these challenges will be critical to the future success of many global enterprises.

This research - the latest in our Agents of Transformation series - points to a career-defining moment for technologists and explores the unique challenges of managing a level of IT complexity never seen before.

The ability to monitor the entire IT stack, from customer-facing applications right down to the core network and infrastructure, is now essential for technologists who want to fix performance issues before they affect customers and the business. For many, full-stack observability seems like the right solution.

But, on its own, full-stack observability isn’t enough.
