Overview

PagerDuty is a real-time operations platform which is continuously processing, analyzing, and routing event data. The system acts as an aggregation point for data coming from multiple monitoring tools and can provide a holistic view of your current state of operations. PagerDuty allows Datadog customers to enable more effective incident response while increasing visibility and accountability throughout the incident lifecycle. PagerDuty delivers two new apps that will give you all the capabilities of our real-time operations platform, wherever you work without the need to switch tools. Add new widgets, Status Dashboard by PagerDuty and Incidents by PagerDuty, directly to your dashboard to see the service status dashboard and respond to high-urgency incidents directly from Datadog in real time.

Status Dashboard by PagerDuty

Status Dashboard by PagerDuty provides technical responders, business responders, and technical and business leaders a live, shared view of system health to improve awareness of operational issues. It displays the current service status and sends notifications to alert users when business services are being impacted. This feature improves communication between response teams and stakeholders during incidents.
