The Observability Guide to Platform Engineering  - Part 1: Platform Observability & Success KPIs


Increasing Developer Velocity, Improved System Resiliency, and Scaling DevOps Best Practices are the top reasons for organizations to invest in building Internal Development Platforms (IDPs). An IDP is a software product, often but not mandatory, built on top of Kubernetes, enabling developer self-service for all relevant use cases in the software development lifecycle.

Like any product, observability is needed to understand whether the product works as expected, is efficient, resilient, and provides the desired value to the end-users. Join this Observability Clinic where Andreas Grabner, CNCF Ambassador and Global DevRel Lead at Dynatrace, walks you through:

  • Architecture of IDPs, including Platform (Storage, Messaging, ...) & Delivery Services (GitOps, Testing, Security, ...)
  • What KPIs measure the success of an IDP: Adoption, SPACE, DORA
  • How to make your Platform Observable: Metrics, Logs, Traces, End User Behavior
  • Practices in defining SLOs and SLAs for your Platform Services.
