Software-defined everything is the biggest disruption we've had ever, probably, as far as I can remember, since IP came along. It's changing the game completely. If you look historically, monitoring technologies were always running behind the service enabling technologies that they were supposed to be looking after. That's just a given. Whether that's internally within, you know, thought given to spending dollars on it, or organizations actually developing it.

As we move to this software-defined everything era, we can't do that, because organizations that are lagging behind in that space are now going to find they've got no telemetry to their business-critical services, and because of the inherent complexity that's lying behind this abstracted service delivery, monitoring those environments is going to be key, and it's going to be challenging.
