How to Convince Your Boss You Need LogSense

Oct 29, 2019 11:47:55 AM |     Michael Fishman

We’ve all been there. You’re in the middle of a huge development project, and something is slowing you down but you don’t know what it is. You don’t have time to sift through thousands of logs trying to pinpoint the problem. You need to move faster. Finger pointing is rampant. You know it, your entire department knows it. Soon enough, your customers will know it.

The main issue with corporate software is that often the person signing off on the budget has more pressing issues at hand. Getting the approval can be a daunting but necessary ask. Instinctively you want to show how a tool can make your life easier; however, your boss wants to know how it will benefit the overall business. Does it save the company money? Does it shave off valuable delivery time? Does it boost productivity? Does it help communications between teams? Focus on the direct benefits to your team and the company, and you'll be ahead of the game.

And today, you’re in luck - LogSense does all of the above!

Now it's up to you to convince your boss that you need LogSense as part of your overall application performance management (APM) and log management strategy. Share these 6 benefits of LogSense with your boss, and get started today.

6 Reasons LogSense is Right for Your Business

1 - Observability. LogSense combines traces with logs, automatically creating structure from unstructured logs and providing unmatched observability across your cloud and hybrid environment. Troubleshooting and looking for the root cause? Get there in half the time by focusing on the real issue -- not only a symptom. Whether it’s the code, the environment or a combination, LogSense knows. Want to dig deeper on observability? Check out this ebook.

2 - Productivity. Legacy solutions create enormous inefficiencies. If your team is spending too much time chasing down issues, then they are not spending time building their applications. If your current log management solution is outdated or requires a lot of manual work, then your IT team is busy maintaining it and not focusing attention on other activities to drive the business forward. LogSense gives you back your time - with no need to write custom parsers or code. With a simple click, LogSense transforms your unstructured data into beautiful charts and dashboards out of sources that are treated as plain text by other products.

3 - Cost Savings. This one always catches an eye - especially if you can present projections of how much money will be saved or real ROI for savings on time and other resources). Often costs (and associated savings) come down to two choices: one, being reactive and not knowing about a problem until it’s too late (and then it becomes even more costly to fix) or two, being proactive and investing to find a problem and fix it before it becomes an issue. LogSense integrates directly with existing workflows to automatically discover log patterns and anomalies to accelerate problem solving - saving you time, money and other resources.

4 - Teamwork. Engineering, development, operations - everyone benefits from LogSense. When more than one voice or team advocate for something, it can help your credibility and help to build your story rationale. Improved collaboration and efficiency and streamlined workflows are a few of the benefits. We would be happy to schedule a call with your cross-departmental team to determine how LogSense can make your application development and troubleshooting simpler, faster and more cost effective.

5 - Built for the Cloud. LogSense offers Native AWS compatibility so you can be up and running in no time. We provide out-of-the-box, pre-built analytics and dashboards for Amazon Web Services including: Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudFront, Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), Amazon VPC Flow Logs, AWS Config, and AWS Lambda.

6 - Unrivaled Affordability. You can get started for free, and our entry plan allows you to actively manage and get the most from your log data for just $25/mo. Your investment in LogSense will cost on average 50% less with higher capacity limits than competing solutions. Compare for yourself.
