PagerDuty announced PagerDuty for Customer Service to empower front-line customer service agents to solve issues faster and deliver better experiences to their customers.

The solution, which consists of new partnerships and two-way integrations with Zendesk and Salesforce Service Cloud, lets teams proactively share information between the applications they work in, understand and resolve technical issues and work together as a united front supporting customers.

“PagerDuty’s two-way integration with Zendesk solves a significant problem in customer service: information siloed between teams working in different systems,” Zendesk’s VP of Product, Luke Behnke, said. “When teams are able to share information and collaborate, customers get resolutions faster. With this solution, technical teams can see specific context from customer conversations within PagerDuty, such as whether it’s an isolated or widespread issue, without sifting through call logs and emails."

“A large retailer can lose hundreds of thousands of dollars a minute if its website fails in a busy shopping period, so every second counts when resolving issues and communicating with customers,” said PagerDuty’s SVP of Business Development and Corporate Strategy, Jukka Alanen. “PagerDuty acts as the central nervous system for a company’s digital operations, giving teams a single view into how their infrastructure and applications are running. Modern customer service teams play a key role in the customer experience and to improve how they communicate with customers, can now receive real-time updates from technical teams.”

The new solution builds on PagerDuty’s ever-growing digital operations ecosystem, which includes more than 350 integrations with over 200 partners whose products are used by teams including DevOps, ITOps, Security and Customer Service. PagerDuty sits at the heart of this ecosystem, using 10 years of machine and human response data from 12,000 customers to provide visibility, intelligence, orchestration and automation across a company’s entire digital operations.

By linking more of these products and teams around PagerDuty’s platform, PagerDuty for Customer Service extends the benefit of real-time digital operations management to more people, giving them the flexibility to do more within the applications they work in.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
