Enterprises accelerate spending on cloud but don't cut costs for data centers. What gives?

Cloud computing is the unheralded hero at CES 2020

David Linthicum

I’m speaking at CES 2020 this year. This is the first non-cloud-focused event I’ve attended in years, and I’m looking forward to learning about new things. What strikes me though is that this is actually a cloud event in disguise. Although cloud is certainly a topic at CES , I’m not sure that those who are attending and exhibiting understand how foundational public cloud computing is to the success of almost all consumer-focused electronic devices.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
