Check System Health on the Go with Splunk Observability Cloud For Mobile

With the demand to meet service level agreements (SLAs), any on-call SRE can tell you that incidents always happen at the wrong time. Things break when you least expect them to (on a date, about to beat a new level in a video game, pizza delivery just arrived, asleep at 3am). During these inopportune moments, you want to make sure it's easy to get the data you need, no matter which device is nearby.


11 Effective Benefits Of The Internet Of Things (IoT) In Business

The abundance and diversity of technologies we possess are among the most essential aspects of our rapidly progressing, modern society. From one of the most basic examples in our everyday lives, mobile phones, to the hot topic of Machine Learning and artificial intelligence, technology is constantly a part of everyday life, whether we know it or not.

Metrics for Apache Kafka with Datadog and Aiven | Ryan Martin (Aiven)

Using managed services is all very well, but how do you get the data you need from the different services into Datadog so you can see it all in one place? This session will walk through the configuration for bringing your Aiven-managed Apache Kafka service metrics into your Datadog explorer. You’ll see how to filter the metrics to focus on specific topics or consumer groups, and how to use the Aiven client to create a repeatable, scriptable setup. This session is recommended for anyone living in the as-a-Service world who cares about data and is interested in using metrics to optimize their Kafka clusters.

Announcing the General Availability of Splunk Mobile RUM for Native Mobile Apps

As the world increasingly works, buys, and communicates through native mobile apps. In 2020 there were 218 billion new app installs globally, 13.4 billion from the US alone. The challenge, while iOS and Android applications make up significant portions of user traffic and business, engineering teams and monitoring tools are split between mobile app and backend developers; this creates siloed visibility on how changes to the app or backend components impact each other, and end user experience.


Introducing Test Insights with flaky test detection

The CircleCI Insights dashboard was designed to help you improve your delivery efficiency. We launched the dashboard a year ago to provide teams with actionable data for optimizing your pipelines. Since then, we’ve been listening to your feedback. By far, the most requested functionality is the ability to gain further visibility into test performance.


Is Kubernetes the answer to the challenges in Multi-access Edge Computing - or is there more to this equation?

The market for Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is pegged at $4.25 billion in 2025. The reasons are many – from the recent surge in AR/VR gaming, to a growing preference for video calling and Ultra-High-Definition, and of course, the Internet of Things (IoT) that spawn SmartX applications, including cities, manufacturing, agriculture, and logistics. The majority of MEC opportunity is both driving and driven by 5G, and the two will grow hand-in-hand in the days to come.


API mock testing with Nock

For the latest full-stack applications to work, a backend service is required. That is especially true when the frontend service depends on the backend service to render data. In many cases, it can be difficult to replicate the setup of the backend services so that you can test the application. This tutorial will show you how to mock HTTP requests from an API so that you can test endpoints without actually calling them in your tests. This tutorial covers these topics.
