Community voices are a cornerstone of any Grafana Labs event. That’s why we’re excited to reveal the full agenda for ObservabilityCON 2023, which features community-led sessions that highlight the unique observability journeys and success stories from some leading experts in the industry.
This year’s line-up for ObservabilityCON 2023 — our premier open source observability event that will take place 14-15 November in London — includes so much to look forward to, from lessons learned during a Grafana Cloud migration to successful strategies for supporting complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments with the Grafana LGTM Stack (Loki for logs, Grafana for visualization, Tempo for traces, and Mimir for metrics).
Be sure to register today to take part in ObservabilityCON 2023! Seating is limited, and our early bird pricing rate of £100 is only available until 20 October. (Full price tickets will be £180.)
Here’s a look at who will be joining us at the event.
ObservabilityCON 2023: Community success stories
ComplyAdvantage, which provides compliance and risk management tools, has overhauled its observability platform twice in two years, first moving from Grafana OSS to Datadog, and then migrating from Datadog to Grafana Cloud. Join Principal SRE Adam Wilson to hear how his team’s approach to observability evolved, and how their increased OTel usage made it possible to migrate twice — and get the most out of Grafana Cloud for metrics, logs, traces, Kubernetes monitoring, and more.
Maersk, a global leader in shipping and logistics, is forging its path to enhanced observability. To streamline operations and empower developers to take the helm in observability, Maersk embarked on a journey to consolidate tools into a centralised platform. Join Director of Platform Engineering Roshith Radhakrishnan and Senior Engineering Manager for Observability Platforms Henry Kühl as they unveil how Maersk revolutionised its observability using the Grafana LGTM Stack complemented by Grafana Faro for real user monitoring (RUM).
Join us for an in-depth conversation with observability leaders from Just Eat Takeaway.com, Sky, and BlackRock. They’ll share stories about their organizations’ observability journeys, their perspectives on scaling observability across an enterprise, and their opinions on the current trends in the space.
Over the past few years, Actian has shifted from offering a solely on-premises data integration, management, and analytics product to supporting hybrid and multi-cloud environments as well. To keep up, the team needed a customizable observability tool and found it in Grafana Cloud. Lead Cloud Operations Engineer Suleyman Kutlu will share his team’s journey, starting with metrics and logs and venturing into load testing, frontend observability, incident response and management (IRM), and more.
The observability team at Wise Payments — Europe’s leader in cross-border money transfers — had long provided the company’s developers access to a multitude of tools. But as costs and complexity increased, Ibukun Itimi, Engineering Lead for Observability, and Andrew Brown, Reliability Squad Lead, saw an opportunity to change not only the tools they were using, but the overall observability culture. In this session, Ibukun and Andrew will highlight how the Grafana LGTM Stack is empowering their team to become more product-focused and shift from being external tool wranglers to providing in-house observability expertise.
The cloud-based CRM company Pipedrive has been relentlessly modernising its observability stack, first adopting Grafana visualisation and Grafana Mimir for Prometheus metrics. Recently, they completed a migration of its distributed tracing from a third-party SaaS provider to OpenTelemetry and Grafana Tempo and its logging stack from Graylog to Grafana Loki. Along the way, the team developed its own in-house library to include OpenTelemetry in its roughly 750 microservices. Join Observability Platform Team Lead Karl-Martin Karlson as he shares Pipedrive’s journey migrating to the LGTM Stack in an infrastructure spanning 8 data centres, 5 physical locations, and over 20k Kubernetes pods.
