Data observability is a relatively new discipline in the fields of data engineering and data management. While many are familiar with the longstanding concepts of observability and monitoring in enterprise IT networks and infrastructure, data observability has only really come into the spotlight in the last two years. However, it has managed to turn a lot of heads in that short time.

Things break and the DBA must be prepared for situations where a failure impacts the availability, integrity, or usability of a database. Reacting to failures and service disruptions is a key component of the DBA's job. This means ensuring that appropriate backups are taken for all your critical database objects. Assuming backups exist, when an inevitable database recovery is required, the next decision is how to get the data you need back as quickly as possible. But there are several different types and methods of performing recovery.

British mathematician Clive Humby famously said in 2006 that "Data is the new oil." In the 16 years since, companies of all sizes have drilled for and stored more and more data about their customers and business operations to drive performance and growth to reach their goals. In conjunction with the increased use of the consumer internet, data creation has exploded in recent years—considering the majority of the world's data collected over the course of human history has occurred in just the last two years alone. As a result, entire businesses and industries have been built solely on having access to unique and useful data.

Every organization, from the smallest nonprofit entities to the trillion-dollar behemoths dominating the historic landscape south of San Francisco, recognizes that tomorrow is not guar­anteed. In the early days of this decade, the world's governments put the world economy into existential peril as they attempted to "lock down" public interaction, resulting in the world's econo­mies shutting down. Even when the most destructive restrictions were loosened, there was a considerable amount of less onerous restrictions which lingered on for many months.

Is the mainframe still necessary? Well, let's put it this way: If all the world's mainframes shut down, we'd be facing a zombie apocalypse. That's a bit hyperbolic but the underlying point stands: Without mainframes, banks couldn't process financial transactions at ATMs or online, retailers' ecommerce platforms would go dark, and healthcare systems would be unable to access patient records or other vital information. Mainframes are still a vital part of the modern enterprise. If they no longer existed, businesses would lose access to years of records and entire computing systems would crash.

Establishing agreed upon services levels for database applications is of the utmost importance for assuring that performance meets required criteria. Without pre-determined, negotiated service level agreements in place, database and application performance can become a never-ending game of blind man's bluff, where DBAs blindly and constantly seek an unspoken goal. Instead, active service level management should be the standard.
