Gartner says, "DevOps initiatives improve speed and agility, but monitoring often starts during production. To provide superior customer experiences, infrastructure and operations leaders need to build instrumentation into the preproduction phase, tracking metrics on availability, performance and service health.

How can I&O leaders leverage monitoring practices to continually improve DevOps deployments and performance against business key performance indicators (KPIs)? This research identifies monitoring practices that I&O leaders should embed in the preproduction phase of DevOps cycles to address needs across application development and release management."
