OpsClarity, an operation and analytics company, is launching a new platform today in an effort to “bring intelligence to operations for modern web-scale applications.” There’s a whole bunch of context missing in there, so first thing’s first – some explanations. Applications today are fundamentally different to those of only a few years ago. A bunch of technology and organizational changes have result in a different style of application becoming the norm today. The rise of cloud computing and the ability to leverage distinct development components mean that modern applications are far more heterogeneous than before. At the same time, the demand for agility means that applications, rather than being a “create once and run forever” paradigm, are far more iterative than ever before.
