Solution Guides

Did you know that PagerDuty can be used by departments outside of IT? That’s right! Check out the Solution Guides we’ve shared that help teams like marketing, sales, finance, human resources use PagerDuty to handle critical business functions.

Event Intelligence

Event Intelligence (EI) is a ML-powered solution helping organizations reduce downtime and deliver on customer experiences. The latest EI features provide teams with actionable insights to help reduce noise, drive to root cause, and automate manual processes for fewer incidents and faster resolution.

Event Orchestration

Event Orchestration helps teams reduce noise and cut down on manual event processing to both improve operational efficiency and reduce toil. The event orchestration decision engine enables teams to create custom logic to enrich, modify, and control the routing of events to the right teams based on event conditions at scale!

Combine nested event rules with machine learning and targeted automation to trigger actions, including diagnostic and remediation actions (including retrieving system health stats, implementing self-healing, or automatically rolling back a deployment and restarting a server).

On-Call Management

The health, happiness, and overall well being of teams is key to every organization’s success. Our on-call management capabilities strive to help protect an organization’s most valuable asset—the people.

Round Robin Scheduling

Now generally available on Business and Digital Operations plans, Round Robin Scheduling allows teams to equitably distribute on-call shift responsibilities amongst multiple team members. It works by automatically assigning new incidents across different users on a team to ensure that teams can resolve incidents as efficiently as possible with less risk of burnout.
