Closing the Loop – Shifting Right & Observability


45 minutes


Shift Left is still a fantasy for most organizations, but what about Shift Right? It’s not just another buzzword–it’s short-hand for how to ensure your testing guides your release and post-release activities, and it feeds back into the planning cycle for your next sprint/cycle/project. Marcus will cover the current state of Shift Left, and pull the audience both earlier and later in the timeline, to a state where our software emits signals at every point. Using the most current information from leaders in the Observability space, a new picture will emerge–one of transparency, continuity, and most important: confidence.
