We welcome you to join us as we do just that in our last webinar to close out the year. In this special edition of PagerDuty Pulse, we’ll be recapping top product innovations we released in 2017, and share live demos and best practices on how to get the most out of your PagerDuty environment for 2018.

Here’s a sneak preview of what we’ll be covering. By bolstering your operations in the following areas, you’ll be empowered to focus on what matters, and improve both service quality and the health and happiness of your teams.

Turn Chaotic Data into Insights and Automation

David Shackelford, who heads up our Event Intelligence team, will be sharing actionable ways to surface the right machine and human context when it matters most. With practical machine learning-based methods, he’ll demonstrate how to improve signal:noise so you have all the right data at your fingertips when an urgent issue strikes, but are sleeping through the night otherwise.

Learn how you can centralize, manage, and automate event behavior at scale to extract signal from the noise using:

  • Automated alert grouping
  • Similar incidents
  • Event routing

Do Major Incident Response the Right Way

Paul Rechsteiner, who leads Incident Response discovery and tooling, will share what top operations teams do when they mobilize during critical, customer-impacting incidents. By adopting best practice approaches to assess, resolve, and learn from issues, you’ll turn wasted time and anxiety-ridden chaos into automation and efficient cross-functional coordination when it matters most.

Leverage the best-in-class, end-to-end incident lifecycle for effective, automated response to the most critical incidents with:

  • Incident priority
  • Response plays & stakeholder engagement
  • Postmortems
  • ITSM integrations

Create Real-Time Workflows Across Any Tool

You’ll also learn about powerful new APIs as well as best-in-class integrations to chat and collaboration solutions. With new extensibility tools, you can customize the ideal toolchain, automate tasks and execute custom logic outside of PagerDuty (such as troubleshooting actions during incidents), and democratize access to real-time data that is necessary during real-time response.

Count on best-in-class API support to automate tasks and customize your ideal workflow:

  • Events API v2
  • New API endpoints
  • ChatOps integrations

We look forward to sharing all of this with you and more in PagerDuty Pulse next week. Click below to register and let us help you supercharge your operations for the new year.

Keeping an application running at scale can be a daunting task. When do you need to add more capacity? Larger databases? Additional servers? These questions get harder as the complexity of your application grows. Microservice based architectures and cloud-based dynamic infrastructures are technologies that help you keep your application running with high availability, even during times of extreme scaling. But real cloud success, at scale, requires much more than a basic lift-and-shift migrati...

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
