Appian Protect: Security Monitoring, End-to-End Encryption, and More

Data is the heart of business operations. And much of that data is sensitive or regulated. Cyber threat actors know they can benefit financially from your data by holding it for ransom or selling it on the dark web. The most recent Cost of a Data Breach Report 2022 from Ponemon Institute and IBM clocks the average data breach cost at $4.35 million USD (that’s $164 USD per data record). The stakes are high. Your security must be too.


5 Reasons Why All the Hype Around Observability is True

Almost every organization needs a top-notch monitoring system to make sure everything is in place and operating at its best, given the developments in the cloud and changing software development life cycle (SDLC) processes. Observability is one of the significant areas that can guarantee your system’s health and ensures that the performance is visible and monitored properly.


What Is the Difference Between Observability and Monitoring?

The practice of DevOps — development operations — has taken organizations by storm. According to a 2021 report by Redgate Software, 74 percent of enterprises surveyed say they now use DevOps in some form or fashion, compared with just 47 percent in 2016. DevOps practitioners seek to improve the software development lifecycle by fostering closer collaboration between developers and IT operations teams.


Monitoring APIs with Grafana

Now that we have explored monitoring apis with Prometheus, let’s take a look at monitoring our APIs with Grafana. You may have noticed from the previous blog that Prometheus is awesome, but takes some time to fully flesh out and their dashboards aren’t easy to read or very eye-catching. Luckily for us, Grafana specializes in data visualization. We won’t even have to configure all our Prometheus queries, so let’s get started.


AIOps Observability: Going Beyond Traditional APM

AIOps is an emerging technology that applies machine learning and analytics techniques to IT operations. AIOps enables IT teams to leverage advanced algorithms to identify performance issues, predict outages, and optimize system performance. Nodesource sees significant advantages for developers and teams to increase software quality by leveraging AIOPS.
