The Problem

A sound tagging strategy is key to the success of any cloud transformation, regardless of the tools and platforms chosen by your company.

Manually creating tags is one of the biggest mistakes customers make in their journey into the cloud, and our team is experienced in guiding customers through the challenges of automating tag creation using cloud templates.

The Solution

Our engineers have years of experience in advising customers on which tags are important, how to use them, and how to automatically generate and consume them.

Tags are a powerful way to correlate data across your infrastructure so that you can generate insights for both business and engineering teams. Knowing which tags are important, which are mandatory, and which are nice to have, will make your cloud journey infinitely more scalable across all modern platforms your team adopts.

Datadog Integrations

The Datadog platform offers over 400 out-of-the-box integrations, but RapDev has uncovered some gaps through working with our customers. That’s why we’ve built many Datadog integrations ourselves, including SNMP Profiles, Office365, Zoom, Solaris, Nutanix, and more.

We’re continually developing new integrations to maximize the value of the platform for our customers and the Datadog community.
