Nowadays, companies can choose from a wide variety of open source and proprietary technologies to implement their observability strategy. These technologies bring positive business outcomes such as reducing the impact of downtime, improving customer experience, or boosting operational excellence. However, observability practitioners are often stuck in the implementation details when they think about their platforms and lack the tools required to effectively shift the conversation from the technical aspects of a project to the value of a solution.

In this webinar, we’ll explain how value engineering (VE) can demystify the true cost of observability and how you can reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) with the Grafana Stack, from Prometheus for metrics, Loki for logs, Tempo for tracing, and more. We will show you how to build and customize a total cost of ownership (TCO) tool to produce holistic, quantifiable, and actionable metrics for business stakeholders. Whether you are justifying a budget for a new observability project or looking for data to ask for a promotion, you can leverage your newly gained knowledge to help guide decision makers when confronted with a buffet of all seemingly good options.

During this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • What cost elements you need to consider when assessing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an observability stack.
  • What value engineering (VE) is, and what the typical VE tools are.
  • How VE can be used to measure the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an observability solution
  • How you can reduce your observability TCO with the Grafana Stack
