DevOps to Drive Business By @SamuelJScott | @DevOpsSummit @Logzio #Agile #DevOps #API

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 08/27/2015 - 07:45
DevOps has traditionally played important roles in development and IT operations, but the practice is quickly becoming core to other business functions such as customer success, business intelligence, and marketing analytics.

Here’s why: Server log files contain the only data that is completely full and accurate in the context of how search engines such as Google are crawling websites. If a search engine spider encounters an error and does not load a page, the webmaster does not know because traditional traffic analytics tools such as Google Analytics do not track those issues. Log file data, on the other hand, does reveals what problems bots are encountering on a website – and many of those issues can hurt a site’s appearance and rankings in Google.
