According to new research from Cisco AppDynamics, digital experiences must be seamless (and seamless) or. Having these experiences fulfill the purpose of dealing with a complex, interconnected nexus of cloud environments and applications. Nothing less than full-stack observability, or the ability to monitor the IT ecosystem across the whole stack, can assist technologists deliver.

According to the company's report, full-stack observability support is increasing, and adoption is gaining ground. Over half are ramping up their growth in full-stack observability over the last 12 months. And, 60% believe this will be a significant year for their organization on the path to full-stack observability.

Increasing productivity, decreasing IT departments' costs, and increased resources to invest in digital transformation are among organizations in the trenches who are actively engaged in the full-stack observability report.

After two years of sustaining a shambles in digital transformation, technologists are now looking to fortify and build on their existing monitoring capabilities to position themselves at the forefront of the next stage of innovation, said Cisco AppDynamics'VP of Technology Strategy and executive CTO, Joe Byrne.

Here's a look at why organizations are making the move.

The shift from traditional monitoring

Back in February 2021, global technologists saw the writing on the wall. According to an AppDynamics survey, 96 percent believed that being able to monitor all technical areas across their IT stack and directly link IT performance to business outcomes would be critical.

Traditional and siloed monitoring tools were still prevalent in most industries. In most organizations, internal teams use separate tools, and none of them can integrate, communicate, or deliver comprehensive, overarching insights with such disparate data. Fortunately, these tools rely on after-the-fact information: Log-based alerts, static graphical displays, and traditional search tools create issues after the customer experience has already been compromised.

These devices are mostly designed for IT-centric users rather than business-centric users. They also lack security awareness and only provide limited analytics, triggers, and actions.

The advantage of full-stack observability

Unsurprisingly, in the 2022 survey, 87% of technologists are concerned about the benefits of full-stack observability for their business, both from an IT and business performance perspective; gaining a cohesive view on availability and performance up and down the IT stack is enormous.

From the customer-facing application to the back end, organizations are getting a 360-degree look at their cloud native environments, including the microservices and container solutions.

Full-stack observability, which is backed by AI and machine learning, is a proactive and real-time solution. Non seulement can it dig up the root cause of application and infrastructure issues, but it also presents a potential issue before the customer experience is at danger a significant leap ahead of traditional monitoring.

Reaping the competitive advantage

Technologists say business leaders are getting on board. They're seeing preliminary results, including increased user experience, cost and performance optimization, and increased revenue, and they're shifting the budget and resources required to accomplish these tasks.

The value of end-to-end visibility on the backend is fundamental to digital transformation. Businesses that do not make the leap are facing the prospect of falling behind the competition, opening themselves up to the huge app outage that destroys their reputation, avoiding competition opportunities and revenue.

Most IT professionals are fully aware of what they expect, with 80% acknowledging that making significant strides for full-stack observability in 2022 will result in losing competitive advantage. Organizational consequences will be incurred if they fail to progress on their plans, say 95 percent, with 96 percent anticipating negative consequences.

Application of innovative observation methods

In a technology sector that's rapidly evolving, organizations benefit from tapping a trusted partner that can not only provide best-in-class solutions, but assist them in bringing cultural and operational changes to the best.

There is no doubt that full-stack observability will be pivotal for technologists in 2022, says Byrne. Technologists now have a unique opportunity to impact their organizations, and theyre feeling relaxed and confident.

The key advantage of this report is that the transition to full-stack observability is gaining momentum, and technology professionals are feeling particularly optimistic about their goals in 2022. They're building on their growth as they expand their monitoring strategies and strive to gain the visibility and potential they need to provide seamless digital experiences and reap the rewards.
