Too Long; Didn't Read
There is no doubt in the value of data observability in improving efficiency and reliability across the data value chain. However, we also need to start building the best practices across the eco-system to maximise the value. In the application observation ecosystem (such as Datadog), once DevOps and SRE teams are notified of an issue, the subsequent remedial actions are clear and well understood. In comparison, things are quite different with a Data Observability ecosystem. The remedial action can be quite different, complex and relatively challenging depending on the incident.
