Monitoring at one of the largest retail groups in the world

This talk will focus on the monitoring of the Schwarz Group, one of the largest retailers in the world, with an extremely large and complex environment, using the OMD platform. OMD is an all-in-one monitoring solution that integrates Naemon/Thruk for host and service monitoring, Prometheus for metrics collection, and Grafana for data visualization. The monitoring extends from classic infrastructure, such as servers and networks, to cloud-based applications and even to the business operations in stores. This comprehensive monitoring approach provides necessary information and data for each client group, allowing the Schwarz Group to optimize its operations and enhance customer experience. We will discuss the benefits of using OMD and its tools in such a large environment, including its scalability, flexibility, and ease of use. We will also cover some of the challenges faced during the lifecycle of the monitoring solution. Overall, this talk will provide valuable insights into the power of OMD for monitoring large-scale and complex infrastructures, and how it can help organizations like the Schwarz Group improve their operations, maintain their systems in top condition, and enhance their customer experience.
