Hello again, folks! It sure has been a while. For those of you who know me, you may remember I used to work at SquaredUp as a tech evangelist until a couple of years ago. Then some things happened, and I left in pursuit of something else. However, life has come full circle after about 2 years and boy am I glad to be back!

Everyone has their own toys to play with this Christmas, but we all have more fun when we share. The same applies to the tools we use, the data we collect, and the insights we act on.

The single pane of glass is perhaps the most enduring and elusive goal of enterprise IT operations teams. When we polled our customers a couple of years ago, out of 184 respondents, 99% of them rated it as important to their business – with 64% indicating “extremely important”.

At SquaredUp, we have been debating how the senior leadership team can monitor the ‘health’ of our engineering teams. To do this, we decided to create a dashboard that could represent this for a team – but first, we needed to figure out what to measure. Our goal was to better understand our teams to inform which actions to take to support them and make them a happier and more productive bunch.

Last week, we were very excited to host our first ever SquaredUp Virtual Customer Workshop! We’d received so much positive feedback on the intimate in-person workshop we ran in the UK last month that we wanted to extend the invitation worldwide – by recreating the experience virtually. Using the digital conferencing app Gather Town, we were pleased to welcome 23 SquaredUp customers from 12 countries to our virtual “SquaredUp Town”.
