Will Application Monitoring Bridge the Gap for DevOps?

Source- technative.io As operations, we look at a new platform/protocol/architecture/interface/tool, search a bit on Google®, and generally find that manageability challenges fall somewhere under a normal curve, or at least within the guardrails.
