When you connect Moxtra to PagerDuty, you give your team a space where PagerDuty alerts can be seen by your entire team, and you can easily bring in outside parties to discuss and resolve the incident.
I am not always a fan of “Women in Tech” events. So imagine my surprise to find myself spearheading a Women’s Leadership Circle here at PagerDuty. How do women-focused career events actually help?
Operations teams are receiving more telemetry data from monitoring systems than ever before. But they are struggling to sift through this data to find what really matters – resulting in alert fatigue and missed alerts. For this reason, we’re proud to announce that long-time partner Event Enrichment HQ is joining the PagerDuty family to deliver the industry’s first integrated event management and incident resolution platform. Adding Event Enrichment HQ and its keystone product, the Event Enrichment Platform (EEP), to PagerDuty helps you quiet your noisy monitoring systems, reduce alert fatigue, and slash your incident resolution times.
Deploying in Salesforce requires a lot of steps. Each one must be performed manually and the entire process is prone to error. If you want to deploy to multiple environments then you have to repeat this entire process for each one. I wanted to use the same deployment system that we use for everything else at PagerDuty: n in-house deployment system named Igor controlled through our Lita bot called OfficerURL (URL for short), which allows us to deploy with a single command in Slack.
Don’t let the hardboiled-sounding name of our latest integration scare you off, because this monitoring service is a great way to get notified when one of your mission-critical scheduled tasks suddenly sleeps with the fishes. Dead Man’s Snitch is an uptime-monitor for cron or periodic jobs like backups or batch processing, and it alerts you when your jobs don’t run so you can investigate before it becomes a problem.
After getting our exciting entries from you guys and narrowing it down to five stellar finalists, you guys all helped #pickyourpage and now, we have our alert sound contest winner.
The submissions are in! Now it’s time to vote on what custom alert sound will make the cut and become the newest PagerDuty alert, available in the November 2015 release for selection from the PagerDuty app.
StatusCast is an application status page tool that allows you to proactively communicate uptime status to your end-users to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty. You can use StatusCast with PagerDuty to build a hosted status page in minutes and keep users informed with status updates via email, SMS, Twitter, Slack, HipChat etc.
We’re excited to announce our first-ever custom alert sound contest! Beginning September 21, 2015, we will accept submissions for a chance to be included as an alert sound in our mobile app. We have a great community, and we want to see them get creative. Or ironic. Or immature. Songs, clever noises, avant-garde recordings of one hand clapping – all are welcome. Send your best creation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As indicated in a survey conducted by Forrester Research, a well-constructed IT Operations management system provides fast alert notification, keeps business-critical incidences from occurring at a minimum, and focuses on automation as a way of addressing issues. What we are actually seeing in the field today, however, doesn’t seem to line up with this approach. According to a recent Forrester thought leadership paper, incident resolution practices today are tactical, reactive, and harm commercial success. Listed below are some observations we are seeing with IT Organizations in the Enterprise.
