New Relic Announces Support for Amazon VPC Flow Logs on Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose

New Relic | September 17, 2022

New Relic , the observability company, announced support for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Flow Logs on Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose to reduce the friction of sending logs to New Relic. Amazon VPC Flow Logs from AWS is a feature that allows customers to capture information about the IP traffic going to and from network interfaces in their Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). With New Relic support for Amazon VPC Flow Logs, both AWS and New Relic customers can quickly gain a clear understanding of a network’s performance and troubleshoot activity without impacting the network throughput or latency Network telemetry is challenging even for network engineers. To unlock cloud-scale observability, engineers need to explore VPC performance and connectivity across multiple accounts and regions to understand if an issue started in the network or somewhere else. To solve this, New Relic has streamlined the delivery of Amazon VPC Flow Logs by allowing engineers to send them to New Relic via Kinesis Data Firehose, which reliably captures, transforms, and delivers streaming data to data lakes, data stores, and analytics services. With New Relic’s simple “add data” interface, it only takes moments to configure Amazon VPC Flow Logs using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or an AWS CloudFormation template. Instead of digging through raw logs across multiple accounts, any engineer can begin with an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance they own and begin to explore the data that matters, regardless of the AWS account or AWS Region. “New Relic continues to invest in our relationship with AWS. Helping customers gain visibility into their cloud networking environment increases their overall application observability. “Our support for Amazon VPC shows our commitment to enhancing our joint customers’ observability experience.” Riya Shanmugam, GVP, Global Alliances and Channels at New Relic “AWS is delighted to continue our strategic collaboration with New Relic to help customers innovate and migrate faster to the cloud,” said Nishant Mehta, Director of PM – EC2 and VPC Networking at AWS. “New Relic’s connected experience for Amazon VPC Flow Logs, paired with the simplicity of using Kinesis Data Firehose, enables our joint customers to easily understand how their networks are performing, troubleshoot networking issues more quickly, and explore their VPC resources more readily.” With the New Relic support for Amazon VPC Flow Logs on Kinesis Data Firehose, customers can: Monitor and alert on network traffic from within New Relic. Visualize network performance metrics such as bytes and packets per second, as well as accepts and rejects per second across every TCP or UDP port. Explore flow log deviations to look for unexpected changes in network volume or health. Diagnose overly restrictive security group rules or potentially malicious traffic issues. ”Our architecture contains above 200 microservices running on AWS. When something goes wrong, we need to find the root cause quickly to put out what we at Gett term as ‘fires,’” said Dani Konstantinovski, Global Support Manager at Gett. “With New Relic capabilities we can identify the problem, understand exactly what services were affected, what’s the reason, and what we need to do to resolve it. New Relic gives us this observability—it helps us to provide better service for our customers.” “Proactively managing customer experience is essential to all businesses that provide part or all of their services through applications. Therefore it’s essential for engineers to have a clear understanding of their network performance and have the data needed to troubleshoot activity before it impacts customers. Also, the quality of the data is fundamental to making good decisions,” said Stephen Elliot, IDC Group Vice President, I&O, Cloud Operations and DevOps. “Solutions that ensure fast delivery of high-quality data provide engineers with the ability to act quickly and decisively with confidence, saving businesses from the costs associated with negative customer experiences.” About New Relic As a leader in observability, New Relic empowers engineers with a data-driven approach to planning, building, deploying, and running great software. New Relic delivers the only unified data platform that empowers engineers to get all telemetry—metrics, events, logs, and traces—paired with powerful full stack analysis tools to help engineers do their best work with data, not opinions. Delivered through the industry’s first usage-based consumption pricing that’s intuitive and predictable, New Relic gives engineers more value for the money by helping improve planning cycle times, change failure rates, release frequency, and mean time to resolution. This helps the world’s leading brands including Adidas Runtastic, American Red Cross, Australia Post, Banco Inter, Chegg, GoTo Group, Ryanair, Sainsbury’s, Signify Health, TopGolf, and World Fuel Services (WFS) improve uptime, reliability, and operational efficiency to deliver exceptional customer experiences that fuel innovation and growth.

Semarchy | October 11, 2022

Semarchy, a leader in data integration and master data management, was selected by Red Wing Shoes to develop a central data hub to manage customer data generated from the explosive growth of the company’s e-commerce sales. Leveraging Semarchy’s unified data platform, Red Wing Shoes will deliver on its customer-centric retail strategy by creating a 360° view to enable its divisions to improve their customer knowledge across all departments. “Semarchy is honored to be selected as the data partner of choice by Red Wing Shoes, whose service and quality are unmatched in its industry. “Red Wing Shoes’ commitment to its customers is in perfect alignment with Semarchy’s commitment to customer success. We are excited to equip this outstanding brand with a data platform equal in caliber to their products and reputation.” TH Herbert, CEO of Semarchy Red Wing Shoes approached Semarchy with challenges including data quality, data visibility, data management, and reporting and analytics. Other business drivers included developing data strategy, minimizing administrative and overhead costs, and establishing a “golden record” for customers before implementing new POS and e-commerce platforms. After reviewing multiple companies, Red Wing Shoes chose Semarchy for its flexibility, expertise, and unified data platform as well as cultural fit. When Red Wing Shoes started their data journey, the first asset they aimed to master was their customer data across all their platforms for a complete view of customers across North America and Europe. One of their greatest challenges was ensuring the company understood who their customer was well enough to market to and service them effectively. With more than 9 million individual records, Red Wing Shoes needed a tool to allow the company to intelligently connect all transactions to the right customer. “With our old systems, if you had a customer that bought shoes in three different stores and online, they would look like four different $300 customers to us, instead of one $1,200 customer,” said Jay Wardle, director, enterprise data at Red Wing Shoe Company. “With Semarchy, we solved our data quality and master data management issues with one system. Now our customer data contains a single golden record for everyone, making it easy for marketing, sales, and customer service to see the data in real-time.” Leveraging Semarchy’s unified data platform, Red Wing’s business units are now empowered with the right data to be proactive with marketing and customer support to serve their customers’ needs with real-time, accurate data. Now that the company has achieved one ‘golden record’ per customer, the marketing department is able to market to customers based on their level of engagement, purchase history, and locations to establish data-driven marketing campaigns, for example, and other departments can derive similar benefits. “We are delighted that Semarchy was able to fulfill the data needs of Red Wing Shoes’ various departments and to enhance the customer experience overall,” said Brett Hansen, chief growth officer at Semarchy. “It is a joy to see how Semarchy’s unified data platform can transform a great brand into a data-driven powerhouse equipped for maximum responsiveness to customer demands and marketing opportunities.” Red Wing Shoes continues to work with Semarchy on innovating new ways to leverage the unified data platform to reduce business complexity and increase efficiencies for their global business; including additional marketing projects, establishing a new POS and e-commerce system with clean data, and improving customer data for their wholesale/industrial customer B2B2C segments.
