PagerDuty announced new automation and intelligence capabilities in its Dynamic Service Directory, Business Response and Intelligent Triage solutions, to help teams reduce manual work, prevent outages and improve remote collaboration.

“The impact of the pandemic has required companies to pivot overnight, reducing labor and IT costs while still serving their customers’ growing digital needs, and working entirely remotely,” said Jonathan Rende, SVP of Product at PagerDuty. “In this type of environment, traditional manual workflows fail. Our platform was built in the cloud for real-time, critical work. With these new enhancements, it is even better equipped to help companies efficiently accelerate their digital transformation.”

Today’s advances in the PagerDuty platform are designed to equip teams with proactive response capabilities to prevent outages, and gain predictive insights so they can automate repetitive work and improve collaboration across virtual teams:

- Intelligent Triage: The general release of Intelligent Triage, now available on mobile, advances PagerDuty’s AIOps solution, Event Intelligence, by providing new automation and intelligence to eliminate repetitive manual tasks. Intelligent Triage aggregates signals from more than 375 of the most popular monitoring, observability and ticketing tools. This gives organizations the ability to group related alerts and elevate those that will impact the business, while applying contextual data from past incidents so that IT teams can reduce resolution time from an average of 80 minutes to as little as five.

- Dynamic Service Directory: PagerDuty’s dynamic Service Directory was built to handle the complexities of microservices environments, which are evolving every second. It gives developer teams access to a central knowledge base that's always up-to-date, and clearly shows owners and experts for each service and their associated run books. This means Network Operations Teams can address issues faster by orchestrating small, effective groups of experts who know exactly how to resolve any given incident. This approach removes the slow downs associated with manual command and control work flows, which typically result in a lot of people spinning cycles in reactive mode.

- Business Response: PagerDuty’s Business Response capability, now with a new mobile status dashboard, allows remote teams, with varying priorities, to collaborate effectively when incidents arise. Irrespective of how many internal stakeholders an incident has, or where these people are located, Business Response gives everyone real-time visibility into incident progress. It protects IT responder teams from being disrupted for status updates, while automating and scaling appropriate, effective commercial responses such as customer or media communication.

With digital acceleration sitting at the center of business priorities, IT incidents are now an executive-level concern. Reducing the costs and time burden associated with problem resolution is now paramount, and Business Response makes it possible to effectively communicate and coordinate action across the organization.

Out-of-the-box integration with Slack and a new integration with Microsoft Teams allows teams to work where they prefer, which aids in collaboration and communication success.
