Observability Use Case Library


Observability takes a top-down approach that encompasses the full-stack of business insights, digital experience, application monitoring, and infrastructure monitoring. These are the components of what you need to observe or understand to keep your systems running well. However, observability doesn't end there. After an issue is detected that needs to be addressed, a workflow is invoked in order to address the observation. These workflows typically fall within two primary domains: DevOps workflows used during the application development process and Investigation & Troubleshooting workflows used during operations support process. The categories below help you find use cases to fit into all these areas of observability.
