‘Twas the Night before Christmas – Anodot Style
As we come to the end of the year and to further the holiday spirit, we’ve taken another perspective on that old favorite ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, taking a look at that night through the eyes and first-hand knowledge of a Data Analyst.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and I longed for my house
With one hand on the keyboard and one on the mouse
Reviewing the data into the night
Checking a software update that was tight
We all worked from our desks pouring over our keys
Typing to the glow of our overworked PCs
With me in a sweat and my team in a tizzy
Checking every metric, till we were dizzy
But then from my monitor arose such a clatter
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter
But all I could see were alert storms and warnings
And I regretted what would await in the coming mornings
For you see, I hadn’t known the change one guy made
A last second tweak, that was missed I’m afraid
We had run a deploy script to see what would appear
I crossed my fingers and trembled with fear
I stared at my iphone, as it started to ring wildly
I got 50 messages, and that’s putting it mildly
Our customers were reporting a performance lag
On this Christmas Day my spirits began to sag,
Then servers, hardware, layers, and apps!
I looked everywhere to find the source of the lapse
I struggled valiantly into the night
Hoping to identify the root cause of the glitch by the break of daylight
I reviewed my dashboards for any deviation
Cried and shouted to share my frustration
I searched high and low at a break-neck pace
And combed every parameter of the database
Tomorrow I’d like to wake from this downtime dream
Grateful I’m still a part of the Data Analytics team
And tell you that now I know that our operations are far too complex
That we have to find another way keep track of so many dynamic objects
In the blink of eye and with a twist of my head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
I spoke not a word, but went straight back to my work,
And I found the right fix with Anodot; then turn’d with a smirk,
And laying a finger aside of my nose
And giving a nod, to my manager I rose.
I sprung from my desk, looked to my team and gave a click,
And knew that AI-powered Analytics would do trick:
And I heard my manager exclaim, that I was absolutely right-
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
We’ve put together a little puzzle for you in the holiday spirit.
