Introducing PagerDuty AIOps: Harnessing the Power of AI to Transform Modern Operations for the Enterprise

by Hannah Culver April 11, 2023 | 6 min read

Today, PagerDuty launched a new AIOps solution to leverage the power of AI, provide built-in automation and build on the company’s foundation data model to transform modern operations for the enterprise. PagerDuty has long suppressed noise to help distributed development teams focus. Now, PagerDuty AIOps addresses the large-scale event correlation, compression, and automation needs of ITOps, Command Centers, NOCs, and SRE teams with Global Event Orchestration (now generally available), and Global Alert Grouping (EA in H2 2023). If you’re interested in being a part of the early access program for Global Alert Grouping, sign up here. Going beyond event management, PagerDuty AIOps helps organizations work more efficiently, including giving them the ability to execute end-to-end, event-driven automation.

Our early access customers are already seeing results with PagerDuty AIOps, including 87% average noise reduction, deployed automated incident response 9x faster than existing solutions, and 14% faster MTTR.

As Kiril Yurovnik, Technical Lead at Riskified, said, “With a growing number of events, minimizing noise and toil is imperative, especially as organizations aim to optimize their IT processes amid the current economic environment. We’ve been using PagerDuty’s Global Event Orchestration as part of the early availability program, and the results have been strong. Riskified has been able to scale noise reduction, especially from non-production environments, saving our team valuable time to spend time innovating on what’s next.”

What is PagerDuty AIOps?

According to PagerDuty platform data, event volumes have grown by 70% YoY. As a result, businesses suffer from too much noise and too much toil while their response teams slog through chaotic, manual response processes.  

And when ITOps and SRE teams who act as first responders for incidents lack access to crucial context and visibility system-wide, they can’t take the next best action. This operational inefficiency has a compounding effect. It increases the cost of operations, reduces productivity across the technical organization, and takes away from value-add work.

In a resource-constrained environment, teams can’t wait for year-long implementations, they need help now. Organizations are looking for a solution that has fast time to value, integrates with their existing systems, and provides fast ROI. 

PagerDuty AIOps helps teams reduce noise, triage efficiently to drive the right actions towards resolution, and remove manual, repetitive work from the incident response process. PagerDuty AIOps works out of the box without requiring long implementations or heavy, ongoing  maintenance. Organizations continue to see best-in-class results. Noise reduction baked in with ML models that learn and adapt based on user behavior means teams see fewer incidents overall. And end-to-end event driven automation ensures that resolution is faster and requires less input from humans who are needed for value-add work.

“Leveraging PagerDuty’s Global Event Orchestration has been critical to ensure that our event routing processes are efficient and scalable to optimize IT operations and spend,” said Brian Long, Cloud Infrastructure Engineer at Hyland. “With Global Event Orchestration, our organization is able to detect the “resolved” condition from our notifications to execute as a resolve and reduce the number of places these conditions need to be configured by at least a factor of three. This frees up our time to focus on innovation, not configuration.”

Here’s what PagerDuty AIOps includes: 

  • Event correlation, noise compression, and triage context functionality, freeing site reliability engineers and information technology teams from managing multiple vendors and manual processes to a single powerful solution that drives to resolution quickly.
  • End-to-end automation, from event ingestion through auto-remediation, to help teams shift from reactive to proactive by capturing and actioning critical events before they become value-destroying incidents.  
  • Advanced noise reduction features (available in our early access program) that group alerts across services and allow customers to leverage both defined rules and machine learning to only surface the incidents that matter.
  • A visibility console that gives operations teams a single source of truth to monitor and quickly manage all incidents before major incidents occur with far-ranging business, IT, and financial impacts. 
  • Global Event Orchestration, a powerful decision engine to enrich and control routing or trigger self-healing actions.
  • With more than 700 integrations on the PagerDuty Operations Cloud platform, teams can trust our automation-led, people-centric AIOps solution to help save time and money.

How does PagerDuty AIOps work?

PagerDuty AIOps has sets of capabilities that help organizations standardize and scale incident best practices across all teams and services. And, it comes with new features custom-built to serve ITOps, Command Centers, NOCs, and SRE teams.

Reduce noisy incidents: reduce incident noise with the click of a button, either within a service or across services with Global Alert Grouping. Use built-in ML models, or create your own logic. And combine intelligent ML and rule-based alert grouping methods for customizable grouping capabilities. Group alerts by content, time, or other criteria for noise reduction that fits your organization’s needs.

When an incident occurs, responders can quickly discover the probable origin of the incident, if the incident has previously occurred, and if a change was the likely cause.

Additionally, you’ll get full visibility into your event data so that you can prioritize what gets ingested and processed and have total transparency into your event usage.
