Anodot Integration Guide

Anodot is a real time analytics and automated anomaly detection system that discovers outliers in vast amounts of time series data and turns them into valuable business insights. Using patented machine learning algorithms, Anodot isolates issues and correlates them across multiple parameters in real time, eliminating business insight latency, and supporting rapid business decisions through its uncovered insights. With its scalable SaaS platform, Anodot provides typically siloed teams – BI, R&D and Devops – with a single, unified system for both business and IT metrics. By adding a PagerDuty Channel for Anodot alerts, and sending Anodot alerts to PagerDuty, you enjoy the benefits of Anodot ML anomaly detection and alerting capabilities combined with PagerDuty alerting functionality implemented in your organization.
