    In today's digital age, organizations increasingly depend on their technology infrastructure to keep their operations running smoothly. These infrastructures include servers, networking equipment, IoT devices, and applications. The data generated by all this infrastructure (logs, metrics, traces) is known as telemetry data, which has a tremendous potential value to organizations. However, it can be challenging to control telemetry data and utilize it effectively. That's where observability pipelines come in. They provide a solution by delivering dedicated environments for monitoring and analyzing telemetry data, allowing organizations to identify issues, and ensure their systems are operational, secure, and performing as expected. In this post, we'll introduce the main points of a recent analyst report by Ventana Research, which explores the importance of observability pipelines in unlocking the true potential of telemetry data.

    Use Telemetry Data to Improve MTTD and MTTR

    The Ventana Research report Unlocking the Value of Telemetry Data with Observability Pipelines highlights the role of observability pipelines in monitoring and analyzing telemetry data. By monitoring and analyzing telemetry data in logs, traces, and metrics, organizations can detect issues and act faster to remedy failures and performance problems. The insights can improve the mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to resolution (MTTR), resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective IT operation. Additionally, by using telemetry data to identify infrastructure problems that can impact the quality of service, organizations can improve their ability to serve customers, partners, and suppliers.

    However, the complexity of modern IT infrastructure means that telemetry data needs to be ingested and analyzed from an enormous range of computing equipment, sensors, and applications, all distributed across on-premises and cloud computing environments. Doing this requires modern pipeline technology to understand the dependencies between infrastructure equipment, identify the signal from the noise, and interpret and act upon it. 

    Derive Maximum Telemetry Data Value With Observability Pipelines 

    Observability pipelines complement observability platforms by generating additional and more immediate value from telemetry data. They help collect, transform, and route data to the right systems in the right volume, enabling access while managing costs. Unlocking the Value of Telemetry Data with Observability Pipelines provides a comprehensive understanding of the importance of observability pipelines in managing the complexity of modern IT infrastructure and effectively utilizing telemetry data.
