Performance and Site Reliability
The concept of observability was first leveraged over 110 years ago. It was initially known as telemetry, and in 1912, it used the city of Chicago’s telephone lines to transmit data from the electric power plants to a central control station. Today, modern observability is still very much focused on the interplay of data to yield informed inputs and outputs of systems. Sprinkle in site reliability engineering (SRE), and there should be little to no performance issues in distributed systems, right? In an ideal world, yes, but in reality, there is still work to be done.DZone’s 2022 Trend Report, Performance and Site Reliability: Observability for Distributed Systems, takes a holistic view of where developers stand in their observability practices. Through the research and expert-contributed articles, it offers a primer on distributed systems observability, including how to build an open-source observability toolchain, dives into distributed tracing, and takes a look at prospective performance degradation patterns. It also provides insight into how to create an SRE practice, as well as tactics to conduct an effective incident retrospective. The goal of this Trend Report is to offer a developer-focused assessment of what the current state of observability is and how it fits in with modern performance practices.
With the need for companies to deliver capabilities faster, it has become increasingly clear that DevOps is a practice that many enterprises must adopt (if they haven’t already). A strong CI/CD pipeline leads to a smoother release process, and a smoother release process decreases time to market.In DZone’s DevOps: CI/CD and Application Release Orchestration Trend Report, we provide insight into how CI/CD has revolutionized automated testing, offer advice on why an SRE is important to CI/CD, explore the differences between managed and self-hosted CI/CD, and much more. The goal of this Trend Report is to offer guidance to our global audience of DevOps Engineers, Automation Architects, and all those in between on how to best adopt DevOps practices to help scale the productivity of their teams.
Application Performance Management
As enterprise applications increasingly adopt distributed systems and cloud-based architectures, the complexity of application performance management (APM) has grown accordingly. To address this new set of challenges, traditional APM is making a push towards intelligent automation (AIOps), self-healing applications, and a convergence of ITOps and DevOps. DZone’s 2021 Application Performance Management Trend Report dives deeper into the management of application performance in distributed systems, including observability, intelligent monitoring, and rapid, automated remediation. It also provides an overview of how to choose an APM tool provider, common practices for self-healing, and how to manage pain points that distributed cloud-based architectures cause. Through research and thoughtfully curated articles, this Trend Report offers a current assessment of where real enterprises are in their journey to design APM approaches for modern architectures.
In 2020, DevOps became more crucial than ever as companies moved to distributed work and accelerated their push toward cloud-native and hybrid infrastructures. In this Trend Report, we will examine what this acceleration looked like for development teams across the globe, and dive deeper into the latest DevOps practices that are advancing continuous integration, continuous delivery, and release automation.
The Database Evolution
Organizations are constantly working to build up their big data capabilities with hopes to compete in the modern economy. SQL and NoSQL database types were supposed to help organizations identify and make sense of hidden patterns in the data that businesses collected. In recent years, however, the momentum of the big data movement has seemed to slow as business leaders around the world have failed to realize the results that were promised several years ago. As the momentum has decelerated, how is the use of SQL and NoSQL databases evolving to support these efforts as businesses attempt to course correct in the big data era? In DZone’s 2020 Trend Report “Database Evolution: SQL or NoSQL in the Age of Big Data,” we explore the role of two popular database types SQL and NoSQL in big data initiatives over the next 6-12 months. Readers will find original research, interviews with industry experts, and additional resources with helpful tips, best practices, and more.
The Rise of Continuous Testing
Continuous testing isn’t just about automation or CI/CD pipelines. CT involves testing throughout the SDLC — automating the appropriate tests, implementing the proper policies, and ensuring teams have effective test automation frameworks in place.This report includes key findings from our research and insightful, new content from DZone contributors that covers the importance of continuous testing in the SDLC, when and why to integrate test automation, and six types of automated testing frameworks. You’ll also have a first look at our exclusive interview with industry expert Alan Page, author of How We Test Software at Microsoft, about modern testing trends.
Application Performance Monitoring
In DZone’s 2020 Application Performance Monitoring Trend Report, we explore state-of-the-art tools and processes, the integration of machine learning and automation, and how emerging trends in APM will play a major role over the next 6-12 months.Readers will discover key findings from our original research and a DZone-exclusive interview with DevOps activist Andreas Grabner. Also included are new articles from DZone contributors, whom shared their insights into APM's impact on team culture and the end-user experience, AIOps, and considerations and priorities for growth-minded organizations.
