Distributed traces are essential for software teams who are moving to the cloud and adopting a distributed architecture. That’s because distributed tracing is the best way to quickly understand what happens to requests as they travel through various services.
As part of an end-to-end observability strategy, distributed tracing addresses the challenges of modern application environments. By deeply understanding the performance of every service—both upstream and downstream—your software teams can:
Identify and resolve issues to minimize the impact on the customer experience and business outcomes
Measure overall system health and understand the effect of changes on the customer experience
Prioritize high-value areas for improvement to optimize digital customer experiences
