Datadog with Omri Sass and Hugo Kaczmarek

Modern business applications are complex.  It’s not enough to have raw logs or some basic telemetry.  Today’s enterprise organizations require an application performance monitoring solution or APM.  Today’s applications are complex distributed systems whose performance depends on a wide variety of factors.  Every single line of code can affect production and teams need insights into the health of the system and how to improve them.

In this episode, I interview Omri Sass and Hugo Kaczmarek from Datadog, a provider of cloud monitoring as a service.  We discuss the APM space and the challenges faced by modern enterprise teams.  We also get into some detail about their new live search option and why that solution was an important addition to their product suite.
