PagerDuty announced two new capabilities - Intelligent Triage and Intelligent Dashboards - for teams responsible for reducing the cost and business impact of issues such as slow downs and outages.

Today, it takes companies an average of 80 minutes to coordinate response teams to solve a customer-impacting issue, such as a failed shopping cart or broken web page. PagerDuty’s new solutions are expected to help reduce that to as little as five minutes by providing automation to get the right people working together, with the right information, to more quickly triage issues when seconds count. By adopting real-time digital operations management practices, large companies can gain upwards of $2.5 million in IT staff productivity savings.

Intelligent Triage is a new feature set within PagerDuty’s Event Intelligence product, which uses machine learning to group alerts together so teams don’t receive multiple alerts coming from related issues. Triage provides additional context into the issue; e.g., whether it has happened before, how it was resolved, how widespread it is, what teams and services are affected, who is working on it and how they can be reached. By immediately arming teams with this knowledge, PagerDuty helps organizations pull together the right people, with the right information, to solve problems faster, minimizing the cost of downtime and preventing poor customer experiences.

Intelligent Dashboards — new to PagerDuty’s Analytics product — leverages machine learning to provide teams with recommendations for how to resolve issues, as well as benchmarks against performance metrics from other teams in their organization or vertical industry so they can continually improve. Its Spotlights recommendation engine leverages 10 years of machine and human response data to give teams context for improvements, such as stopping unactionable alerts and recognizing repeat issues.

“Nearly half of companies experience a major technology issue at least monthly,” said PagerDuty’s SVP Product, Jonathan Rende. “In today’s always-on world, slow responses damage a company’s brand, impact employees and erode the bottom line. Companies urgently need insights into how they are handling these issues so they know how to improve. With Spotlights, we are automating the provision of knowledge that is crucial to both solving problems in the moment and continually improving performance.”

Intelligent Triage:

- Provides context into an issue e.g., whether it has happened before, how it was resolved, how widespread it is, what services and teams are affected, who is working on it and how they can be reached.

- Provides automation to ensure teams have the knowledge required to effectively triage issues in real-time (e.g. is this a major incident? Who is needed to help?).

- Reduces the impact of unplanned work by giving adjacent teams visibility so they don’t duplicate efforts or interfere with each other.

- Creates significant time and cost savings — the majority of tech employees will lose 100-plus hours of productivity due to unplanned work this year4.

- Now available for Event Intelligence customers.

Intelligent Dashboards:

- Leverages 10 years of machine data and human response patterns, applied through Spotlight, PagerDuty’s recommendation engine that learns from past issues to make suggestions that teams can use for future improvements, such as stopping unactionable alerts, fixing repeat issues and improving escalation practices.

- Includes interactive charts and graphs that, unlike static status reports, let customers drill into details by team to show incident volume, response effort, interruption volume and more.

- Provides managers with built-in benchmarks to see how their teams compare to peers in the organization and their vertical industry when it comes to spotting issues, mobilizing teams and achieving resolutions.

- Translates the impact of issues into business outcomes, such as total cost of incidents or response team fatigue where other solutions only have basic metrics, such as mean time to response (MTTR).
