Volvo Cars is a Swedish automotive manufacturer of luxury vehicles headquartered in Torslanda in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company manufactures and markets sport utility vehicles, station wagons, hatchbacks, sedans, and compact executive sedans.

Volvo had a DevOps monitoring solution in place for over 15 years. That solution became outdated and failed to provide information that developers wanted or needed. When IT issues began to affect the production floor, it became clear that something needed to change. Volvo’s DevOps Enablement team used InfluxDB and Grafana to create new dashboards and tools that provided actionable intelligence. Now, instead of reacting to existing issues, Volvo developers can proactively detect issues and resolve them faster, avoiding production delays or stoppages.
