Five Key Users of Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring

DevOps is a fundamental shift in the culture of software engineering and management. But rather than invent a new team structure, the goal of faster, more reliable product delivery is built on better integration across existing roles, better tools, and, most importantly, clearer focus on insight and response.

There are at least five major users of monitoring-as-a-service and intelligent alerting. Each has a set of objectives and methods tied to core job responsibilities, but all relate to streamlining the product lifecycle for faster, more reliable delivery and the safety nets required to develop and push code into production more aggressively.
