Introducing Browser Logger - Unlocking the Power of Frontend Logs

Modern web applications are more reliant on the frontend than ever before. While there are many benefits to this approach, one downside is that developers can lose visibility into issues when things go wrong. When the application experience is degraded, engineers are left waiting for users to report issues and share browser logs. Otherwise, they might be left in the dark and unaware that any issues exist in the first place.

Querying a petabyte of cloud storage in 10 minutes

Elastic's new frozen data tier decouples compute from storage and leverages low-cost object stores such as Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blob Storage, or Amazon S3 to directly power searches. It provides unlimited scaling of storage while preserving the ability to efficiently query the data without any need to rehydrate it first, making it easier and cheaper to manage data at scale.

Clearing IT bottlenecks with citizen developers

“I can clear your IT bottlenecks” is all it took. When my colleague approached me and asked if my organization would be interested in participating in the citizen developer pilot project, I signed on right away. After all, who wouldn’t want to clear their backlog? [Learn more about ServiceNow citizen developers at Knowledge 2021.] As the director of IT customer success, I lead teams that help deliver transformation initiatives at scale. Fulfilling business needs is also my priority.

"Reverse ETL" with Keboola

TL;DR: Yes, you can do it. And no, you don’t need a separate tool for it. “Reverse ETL” is a fairly recent addition to the data engineer’s dictionary. While you can read articles upon articles about it (there’s a pretty good ‘primer’ in the Memory Leak blog), it can be summarized as being the art and science of taking data from your data warehouse and sending it somewhere other than BI - generally into other tools and systems where it becomes operational.

Quantifying the value of multi-cloud deployment strategies with CDP Public Cloud

In this article, I will be focusing on the contribution that a multi-cloud strategy has towards these value drivers, and address a question that I regularly get from clients: Is there a quantifiable benefit to a multi-cloud deployment? That question is typically being asked when I explain the ability to leverage container technology that offers a consistent deployment environment across multiple clouds and form factors (public, private, or hybrid cloud).

What Are Microservices and Why Use Them?

Microservices are the future of software development. This approach serves as a server-side solution to development where services remain connected but work independently from each other. More developers are using microservices to improve performance, precision, and productivity, and analytical tools provide them with valuable insights about performance and service levels.

Website downtime: the cost, the impact, and the solution

Unplanned downtime is the hardest situation to prepare for as it could happen at any time. The only way that you can plan for that eventuality is by having a website monitoring solution in place that can alert you as soon as your website goes down. If you’re the first to know, then it makes it easier for you to do something about it before your customers start reacting, especially on social media.

How to automate your web testing on real mobile and desktop browsers

In the good old days when we were using a basic phone, the web application used to run on only a desktop. Mobile phones were not so evolved to run a web application in the browser. But today, each of us uses a mobile phone for running web applications and websites. When we are talking about web testing, we mean web applications and website testing in web browsers. Here, we are dealing with the web-based programs accessed by multiple users at a time.
