Ted Young, Director of Developer Education at Lightstep, predicts that in 2022, there will be wide mainstream adoption of OpenTelemetry (a project for sharing telemetry). “One of the main reasons people are going to want to do that is because it will allow them to write their instrumentation once, install instrumentation once, and then be able to send that data to any observability tool or provider that they wish to use,” says Young.

He also predicts that open-source software will start to come with native instrumentation. “This also includes things like databases, things like hosted services, all of those things are going to start producing observability data that are hooked into your application traces,” avers Young.
