Increasing the observability attribute of complex systems can be difficult. As interactions become digitally deeper and wider, rising customer expectations are fueling unprecedented levels of control loss (and possibly reach loss). Leo Vasiliou and Dawn Parzych explore critical components, such as the changing nature of data, Simpson’s paradoxical nature of analysis, and the fail-forward mindset as they relate to a larger monitoring strategy.
