Starting Finance relies on Lumigo to ensure high performing apps that have low error rate and down time, and improve MTTR."Lumigo has a better monitoring systems for serverless, Datadog doesn't get close." - Marco Giuseppini, Cloud Engineer at Starting Finance

Simone Conti, CTO of Starting Finance, shared the success of their financial simulator, a trading platform that has garnered over 700,000 downloads and boasts 40,000 active users. This innovative platform, built entirely on a serverless cloud infrastructure on AWS, utilizes serverless APIs implemented via AWS AppSync and AWS Lambda for business logic.

Simone emphasized their preference for serverless infrastructure due to its reliability, efficiency, and scalability advantages. This approach set the stage for a robust observability and troubleshooting platform. Starting Finance evaluated serverless observability tools and quickly determined that Lumigo was the best option compared to alternatives like Datadog. Lumigo provided essential real-time monitoring and error management capabilities, significantly impacting the application’s performance.

By implementing Lumigo, Starting Finance drastically reduced error rates from 1% to 0.03%. They also optimized the runtime of leaderboard functions from 15 minutes to about one and a half minutes. Additionally, Lumigo improved problem resolution times from a few days to just two to three hours, making a substantial difference in the application’s operational efficiency.
