Do Not Build Your Own Operations Performance Platform

Building is second nature for many engineers. Naturally you could build a solution to solve the problems of:

  • Having multiple monitoring tools for your infrastructure
  • Sending multiple types of alerts and re-routing to another person until they’re answered
  • Handling on-call shift changes with one click when life happens
  • Having the dashboards to identify hotspots to make proactive fixes

If you did that, there are quite a few things you’d need to think about. And it’s basically the only thing we’ve been thinking about for over 5 years. Plus building your own tool could cost your business over $330,000 in one year!

Let PagerDuty do the work for you.
