This session by Dev Nag, co-founder and CTO of Wavefront, is based on the talk he gave at nginx.conf 2016.
He will introduce concepts for applying data science to improve monitoring of modern cloud application environments, and how metrics combined with real-time analytics can raise the quality of alerting on what matters.
The talk will also review query-driven analytical methods to finding anomalies before and after incidents occur in production, with examples from the operational trenches of leading SaaS companies.
Dev Nag is the CTO/co-founder at Wavefront, which provides a hosted metrics and analytics platform used by Workday, Box, Lyft, Intuit, Citrix and other leading cloud businesses.
He was previously a Senior Software Engineer at Google where he helped develop the back-end for the financial processing of Google ad revenue.
Dev also served as the Manager of Business Operations Strategy at PayPal where he defined requirements and helped select the financial vendors for tens of billions of dollars in annual transactions. At PayPal, he helped launch eBay's private-label credit line in association with GE Financial.
