Kensu Announces the First O’Reilly Book on Data Observability, by Kensu’s Founder, Andy Petrella, to Help Data Teams Build Trustworthy End-To-End Data Solutions

Kensu, the data observability company,  announced the launch of Fundamentals of Data Observability: Implement Trustworthy End-To-End Data Solutions, published by O’Reilly Media and available for free on This first data observability book, which sets the standard for data observability, empowers data teams to implement trustworthy, end-to-end data solutions by providing them with engineering best practices and practical use cases.

Data environments have become increasingly complex in recent years, increasing the occurrence of data issues, missing data or schema changes. This evolution forces data teams to waste up to 40% of their time deploying band-aid solutions, stopping them from scaling up data usage and producing new value. And despite these efforts, data incidents keep happening and lower not only the morale and reputation of the data teams but also impact business decisions, customer experience, and ultimately companies’ profitability.

Fundamentals of Data Observability is the first O’Reilly book about data observability. It helps data teams understand what data observability is and how it can help them better understand their data usage, troubleshoot data incidents, and prevent them from propagating. The use cases detailed by the author, Andy Petrella, can immediately be put into practice so data teams can start observing their data and dramatically increase its reliability.
