IBM Cloud has monitoring and logging capabilities in the platform, but we know our customers operate in a multi-cloud or hybrid cloud environment and we are very excited to partner with Sematext, enabling operational consistency across those environments. We worked with Alen Komljen, an Automation Engineer from Sematext, to create the following content and perform the technology validation.
