The Value of Reliability

Thursday, 12 October, 2023 - 11:5012:30

Niall Murphy, Stanza Systems


Niall Murphy will deliver an overview of how we measure and articulate the value of reliability in our organisations.

How do we evaluate down time? What are the highest value parts of your stack? How do you prioritise your engineering effort to best improve the set of likely outcomes?

Furthermore, when we know the value of our systems, how do we communicate it effectively to the rest of the business? What ways could there be to prioritise reliability work over feature work?
