Introduction to our data ingest governance series


In the context of our observability maturity series, Data ingest governance is the practice of ensuring optimal value for the telemetry data your organization has collected. This practice is especially important for complex organizations that have numerous business units and working groups. This guide is for readers who need granularity that goes beyond New Relic's data management views or who need to better understand how to use that data effectively.

Desired outcome

Ensure a high return on investment in telemetry data, via these benefits:

  • Noise reduction: Reduce redundant or unnecessary data with confidence.
  • Increased transparency: Understand exactly which groups within the organization are contributing which data. Expose where your telemetry data is coming from and reduce data management silos.
  • Cost optimization and predictability: Account for ingest costs in a clear and concise way. Adjust your ingest volume with full context of the observability value of the data.
