Our customers are transforming their digital environments, whether migrating workloads to Azure, building new cloud-native apps, or unlocking new scenarios at the edge.

It’s critical that customers can monitor the health, performance, and security of their mission-critical systems, and an observability solution is a best practice for streamlined well-governed management.

We know from our customers how important it is to have monitoring available out-of-the-box and to easily get started with samples and recommendations including effective alerts, optimal queries, and customizable reports.
