Observability is required to gain actionable insights from today’s distributed and complex cloud-native systems. Are observability practices in your organization repeatable and collaborative? Traditional approaches to configuring monitoring assets such as dashboards and alerts through UI, point-and-click systems lead to siloed processes, limited ability to continually improve alerts in different environments and drift in best practices.

We will show you how to provision monitoring assets using Terraform Providers alongside infrastructure and applications to achieve consistent observability and effective collaboration.
