SaaS with DevOps Optimization

The importance of re-thinking incident management for online businesses?

As your SaaS business grows, are your DevOps teams working extremely long hours due to:

  • High volume of events and alerts from SaaS across private and public cloud?
  • Serial processing of alerts without knowledge of context?
  • No single pane of glass to manage all events and alerts holistically and efficiently?

If so, it’s time to consider a more automated incident management approach – one that:

  • Acts as a single pane of glass across all monitoring tools (e.g. Nagios, New Relic, Amazon CloudWatch)
  • Automatically compresses millions of raw events into 100s of actionable “situations”.
  • Instantly invites and guides the right domain experts to troubleshoot the right sub-systems.
  • Automatically kicks off resolution steps, synchronizes with ticketing systems, captures and recycles knowledge articles.

The result: Cut your troubleshooting time from days to minutes. Reduce time to software release from weeks to days.
