Without a doubt, enterprises have begun to embrace embracing Reactive system architectures that rely on continuous streams of data–whether between microservices or from external endpoints–and utilizing the power of Fast Data applications for providing actionable insights in more or less real-time.
So while your traditional batch jobs from the Big Data world aren’t going away overnight, it’s these new types of streaming, Fast Data applications that are sparking the emergence of new business models and new services that drive user retention, growth, and profitability with real-time decision making and deeply personalized and timely offers.
But wait…this sounds a bit like a silver bullet, right?
Well, the flip side is that while these applications are powerful and create significant competitive advantages, they also impose new challenges for monitoring and managing the health of the overall system, which ingest constant streams of data from tens or even hundreds of individual, distributed microservices, data sources, and external endpoints.
One of the primary challenges that we address looks at why traditional monitoring solutions, built for monolithic applications, are unable to effectively manage these intricately interconnected, distributed, and clustered systems.
In this Lightbend webinar by Paul Jasek, Senior Director of Global Solution Architects, we present what to look for in an effective monitoring solution for streaming and Fast Data applications. Paul also demos Lightbend Monitoring using sample scenarios to show how we can help your team not just in production, but also during development to catch performance issues before you even deploy.
