September 2023

The end of summer is marked by the return of children to school, and the tech community is seeing more employers demand a return of workers to the office. Surveys and data show that 80% of bosses regret forcing employees back into the office (see article).

Before changing WFH (work-from-home) policies, evaluate what outcomes you're looking to achieve. There may be a better tool that improves productivity or collaboration. If current workloads contribute to burnout, putting everyone in the same room will not fix that. If you're unsure where to start, determine if you have visibility into your teams' work and then start eliminating roadblocks in the value stream.

Cloud-Native Observability

"You cannot improve what you do not measure," especially if you don't even know it's happening. Last month we covered the benefits of going cloud-native, but organizations adopting a cloud-native strategy should plan for cloud observability to reap the most benefits.
