At Kentik, we pride ourselves as innovators and thought-leaders for network observability. “Kentik is network observability” is more than a slogan for us. It’s an idea that informs our product roadmap and guides our problem-solving with customers. We’ve done a lot to explain network observability to prospects. One overview, Network observability: The evolution of network visibility with Kentik, by Kentik tech evangelist Phil Gervasi, discusses how today’s complex environment of cloud-hosted applications, containerized services, and overlay networks require a network-centric approach to observability.

To find out what the NetOps community thinks about network observability, our analyst partner, Enterprise Management Group (EMA), conducted a detailed market study surveying over 400 IT networking professionals.

For example, when asked, “How successful do you think your organization is with its use of network monitoring or network observability tools?” only 25.9% of organizations reported being fully successful. This was a significant decrease in the success rate of 47% from when EMA posed the same question to respondents in 2018.
The results also cover other key areas of change, such as:
