CHAIRISH NEEDED AN OPERATIONAL METRIC SYSTEM

  • Wanted an easy to use solution that could quickly be adopted by the entire team

RESULTS

  • Entire team creates custom charts, dashboards, and alerts–creating visibility across the organization
  • Found sources of poor resource utilization, enabling significant reductions in AWS infrastructure spend
  • Improved relationships between dev and ops teams through shared visibility
