On-demand webinar

Presented by Ben Sigelman
Lightstep co-founder and CEO


In this webinar, Lightstep co-founder and CEO, Ben Sigelman, and OpenTelemetry co-founder, Ted Young, will discuss why tracing will gradually replace logging for distributed or cloud-native architectures.

Topics covered in this 30-minute webinar include:

  • How modern observability changes the need for telemetry data
  • Why tracing outperforms logging (hint: it’s related to context)
  • What happens when DevOps teams adopt OpenTelemetry
