In this episode of The Stream Life Podcast, Mike Dupuis joins the show to talk about the Build vs. Buy approach with observability pipelines. As data keeps growing at an unmanageable pace, there’s no longer a question of if an enterprise needs an observability pipeline. It’s now a question of do you build your own or do you purchase a solution that brings a turn-key approach. Before you build your own pipeline, you need to ask yourself the questions:

  • Can you afford to build it?
  • Can you afford to maintain it?
  • Will you see a return on investment?
