Getting started with real-time metrics and iterate quickly

In our fourth and final article on real-time metrics, we will look at how to easily implement them in order to obtain fast results.

For example, businesses have to understand which financial effects, such as lost sales, result from a system failure. Only then it can be determined, based on the data available, how much effort should be spent on preventing malfunctions.
