Error Monitoring 101:

How to Avoid Costly Bugs and Project Delays


It’s no wonder that companies are putting more emphasis on error monitoring and crash reporting. It’s a fact of life that bugs get released into production, and undetected crashes are a recipe for customer churn, missed SLAs, and reputation damage.

You’ll learn these key takeaways about error reporting and crash management systems:

  • Learn how to reduce your debugging time by 50%
  • Identify the “must have” capabilities you need to monitor, understand, and resolve your errors
  • Understand the differences in error monitoring during development, QA, beta, or post-release phases
  • Cut your mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to repair (MTTR) from hours or days to minutes
  • Calculate engineering resources for initial development and ongoing maintenance
  • Compare the costs of “build” vs. “buy”
  • Detect, analyze, and resolve errors across your entire application stack

No matter what stage of the journey you’re on – whether you’re creating your own system in-house or looking for a turnkey product – there will be valuable insights you can put to use right away in your own initiative.
