Observability for Data Engineering

#artificialintelligence

Observability is a fast-growing concept in the Ops community that caught fire in recent years, led by major monitoring/logging companies and thought leaders like Datadog, Splunk, New Relic, and Sumo Logic. It's described as Monitoring 2.0 but is really much more than that. Observability allows engineers to understand if a system works like it is supposed to work, based on a deep understanding of its internal state and context of where it operates. It is the capability of monitoring and analyzing event logs, along with KPIs and other data, that yields actionable insights. An observability platform aggregates data in the three main formats (logs, metrics, and traces), processes it into events and KPI measurements, and uses that data to drive actionable insights into system security and performance.

Enterprise AI Goes Mainstream, but Maturity Must Wait - InformationWeek

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence's emergence into the mainstream of enterprise computing raises significant issues -- strategic, cultural, and operational -- for businesses everywhere. What's clear is that enterprises have crossed a tipping point in their adoption of AI. A recent O'Reilly survey shows that AI is well on the road to ubiquity in businesses throughout the world. The key finding from the study was that there are now more AI-using enterprises -- in other words, those that have AI in production, revenue-generating apps -- than organizations that are simply evaluating AI. Taken together, organizations that have AI in production or in evaluation constitute 85% of companies surveyed.

Job seekers interact more with advancing tech than they realize as more companies turn to automated tools in talent acquisition. The hiring process has come a long way from the days of paper resumés and cold calls via landline. Online job sites are now staples in talent acquisition, but artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are elevating the recruiting and hiring landscape. When asked about the current status of AI and machine learning in hiring, Mark Brandau, principal analyst on Forrester's CIO team said, "All vendors are moving in that direction without question. The power of AI lies in its ability to process high volumes of data at fast speeds, improving efficiency and productivity for organizations. Those same features and benefits can also be applied to the hiring process. "As organizations look to AI and machine learning to enhance their practices, there are two goals in mind," said Lauren Smith, vice president of Gartner's HR practice. "The first is how do we drive more efficiency in the process?
