The Future of Observability with OpenTelemetry

Analysis tools are fundamentally limited by the data they are provided.

OpenTelemetry is a revolution in observability data. Instead of running multiple, uncoordinated pipelines, OpenTelemetry provides users with a single integrated stream of data, containing all common forms of observability — tracing, metrics, logs, and more.

This report goes beyond “what is OpenTelemetry?” and answers “how is OpenTelemetry going to change observability?”

You'll learn how to:

  • Accurately assess upcoming shifts in technology
  • Seamlessly roll out OpenTelemetry across your org
  • Implement a robust observability pipeline based on OTel
