AWS, Jeffrey, Sumo Logic discussed on Software Engineering Daily


Which provides you visibility into the the security state of your aws applications and what we are starting to see is that you know many knees similar logic customers or deployed in aws are using these services and are using these At a fairly significant rate so so that gives us confidence incidence that enterprises are indeed paying attention to security as they are moving to the cloud they are. They're building in the right capabilities. They are you know using the right services that are offered by cloud platform vendors themselves and all of this obviously a portends wealth for applications that are running in the cloud So sock names. You know if there's anything that you should take away from this podcast. Is that in security in the cloud is a little different but but it is. You know it's definitely doable. And there are all right capabilities available from vendors like aws auto from vendors third-party vendors like some logic that can ensure the security of your apps and infrastructures in the cloud. I assume you've you've been to reinvent absolutely we'd go to arraignment. There's a big contingent engines of similar logic folks who got arraignment every year. So I'm going for the first time this year and just after seeing pictures and hearing stories it sounds completely overwhelming advice. I surviving reinvent man hydrate hydrate hydrate and and get out every every now and then From from the boots and from the from the session. So what can I tell you how about that but then you know that place. Las Vegas has a whole you know reinvent has become the technology Mecca to be and to go to. You know. I'm dating myself here but I is it more more so than. CAS At this point. See yes is a different kind of show right. Jeffrey says he is a bit more consumer oriented. You know. I'm sure if you are selling. The latest style is not gadget or a phone. You know I see yes on 'em. WC The show in Barcelona is best. Perhaps a show to be at if you're doing B. Two B. Applications if you are targeting anybody who is in the devotee devops was a a site reliability engineer or perhaps Stephen a security person relentess is definitely the place to be the vibe in that place. The energy in that plays this off the charts heralds. What's the where technology is today and technology is headed for the next few years? You know rightly or wrongly. Aws is the eight thousand pound gorilla in the cloud. Space the building cool staff. They have some amazing customers. It's a it's sound like an advertisement for aws but the company does it really innovate well assimilated who was deployed and aws. We liked the innovation that they bring to the it world and we like what our customers are able to do on on Wegelius to ensure is amazing. Amazing I think is a sign of of what Amazon does right that it's like as a byproduct of the the accidental business that they created with aws they created like a billion dollar conference industry. Yeah I mean what is it I I hear that are on the run rate of twenty five billion. Whatever right now so reinvent I meant? Aws as business itself. Not no I I don't know what the the actual revenue Magin. It's pretty profitable. Oh my mom was certain. It's it's profitable given the number of vendors like like ourselves who are there and the amount of money that we spend in demonstrating getting boots you know sending people to that event. I'm I'm I'm sure it's a profitable venture for the blues but look I mean at the end of the day right. I mean this is a place. Where were you meet the people who are building your connection APPs right by the fender guitar player who is building their APPs on there the next gen mobile APP on? Aws whether it's AIRBNB AIRBNB whether it's neck flakes or whether it's a tiny little company that's You know with like three guys in a garage today. Nobody would question you if you were to put theocratic card and build your first on us. So it'll be as hats and reinvent has become the show to to go to see what's going on in the in the the. It world for sure as we begin to wrap up a few higher level subjects. I WANNA discuss so the changing usage prototype of a log management system around observability system. We touched on this a little bit earlier but the fact that today not only do you have engineers and operations nations people working with your log management tool your metrics tool we have data scientists. You have customer service people bowl of product managers. You might have marketing people. As he's different constituencies want access to this logging data or maybe they want access to the post processed log metrics. How does that change the interface and has it changed the product design nine? That's a good question rear in early. I would say you know phases of understanding it ourselves but but I think what's similar Dick is starting to see is that you know in many organizations in our customers are not just the typical people right. I mean the SR is in the people who are on the security people who product people like exactly like you said or customer support people who may not have the sophisticated understanding of our curry. The language may not have the ability to create dashboards An alert and and other things that you know you would. You would take for granted if you're someone who lives in breeze. He's within the similar logic system. So what is starting to see more and more off as two modes of operation one is this notion of what I call is template iced iced offers right where I as an administrator of the product or as an expert user of the product. I met template ties What I may I want to do in the product and then expose a few very simple to configure things within my product and then offer it to a larger swath of if users so for example? Imagine if I have. Let's say three hundred customer support people and you know I need to support the customer support people and they need to look into sumo logic system. Every time somebody called with the problem they need to look up an ID and daddy need to see what's what's wrong with the product or the of the system at that point rather than expose the similar logic query language to do all of these people who I'm sure They come with in a different knowledge and different skills at what be condemn do is offered. A template is Interface or dashboard. But all you have to do is drop the product. Id and then you drop the product idea you know you are the customer and you get all the details about the the customer. that product used product the logs from the product the editors and the D. Bugs and the warning messages the product itself so so this template is offering essentially in some sense simplifies. Don't want to use the word dumps because that has a pejorative meaning to it but at least simplifies the access and the analytics that these non-experts can also get from our product. The other approach that I will see you know and then from product. What is the ability for us to export Data from product into other systems so we have customers who explored our data into into Pablo into clack into Lucre. You know so that they can start to slice and dice data in somewhat different ways which may would be more in line with what these personas may be used to and mail to want to see it and end of the day. We own the business of getting insights from data and the extend that you know that are better than other systems that can perhaps do some of the stuff we have more than happy to export this data to integrate those Danine to other the systems. We also see some of data science customers. You know US notebooks and decimal logic as a simple interface to export or data into data data. Science notebooks there you can do other forms of analysis on this data which may not be core discipline logic which on the focus of some logic itself so look at the end of the day right. I mean you've been in the business of getting best insights from our data for customers and we'll do our utmost to make that happen. I want to thank you for coming in software engineer. Dale it's been great talking to you. Thank you very much. Jeffrey take.
