Observability Foundation - accredited training with exam

training code: ZP-OBSF-DOIen / ENG DL 2d / EN

Microservices and cloud-native architectures have been goals of many organizations to help increase speed and agility, but as complexity grows, systems become increasingly challenging to build observability best practices.

Observability Foundation introduces a range of best practices for building full-stack observability towards advancing resilience in a distributed ecosystem. These best practices include building meaningful traces across temporal topologies, the impact of DevSecOps and AIOps on observability, and a 360-degree view of building mature observability practices.


  • This course introduces a range of  practices for advancing resilience and how to architect end-to-end  Observability  for  Cloud-Native  applications.    The  advantages  of  building  full-stack  metrics, events,  logs,  and  distributed  tracing  are  introduced,  along  with  the  impact  of  DevSecOps  on Observability  and  how  AIOPs  enhance  Observability  capabilities.  This  course  also  covers  how Network and Security Observability plays a key role in building reliability, the key aspects of security operations and automated responses are covered,
  • The course aims to equip participants with the practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization involved in Observability by using real-life scenarios and case stories. Upon completion of the course, participants will have tangible takeaways to leverage situations such as
  • implementing MELT models effectively, that fit their organizational context, building distributed tracing and resiliency by design.  
  • The course is developed by leveraging key experts in the fields of telemetry, sources of knowledge and engaging with thought-leaders in the Observability space, and working with organizations who have crossed the chasm of modern Observability to extract real-life best practices. 
  • This course positions learners to successfully complete the Observability Foundation certification exam.
