Incident Response: How to enhance collaboration during an incident

Nov 23, 2017 by Bahadır Tolga Özgentürk

Let’s face it, if you’re reading this article, you’re probably a part of an IT team or familiar with the concept of an Incident. They define the “uncertainty” dimension in your company, and its reputation is determined by how you manage those times of uncertainty. Incidents are the nightmare of the DevOps crew who manages them, and just a state of disappointment for the customer who’s on the receiving end of your service. During a major incident, communicating the misfortune between security experts and corporate stakeholders gains further significance. To manage these times of uncertainty, you must rely upon fail-proof systems which are able to effectively deliver communication between multiple stakeholders. Thus, while the experts are working to resolve the issue, your corporate communication teams must deliver the correct message so that the public opinion is shaped by the disaster response efforts. It’s the difference between letting the public know that the flight is in turbulence instead of a nosedive. A company’s response to a crisis is not a mere coincidence, but a reflection of the efforts taken to mitigate the possibility of a collapse.

Chat applications are integral parts of an incident management system. As their popularity increases, aim to understand their capabilities and make the most out of them.

OpsGenie recently published a tech brief called “Six Must-Haves When Using Slack® for Incident Management” which presents essential features of an incident management system’s chat application to help you respond to incidents faster. In this blog post, the goal is to focus on one of those six features, Control Access.

OpsGenie identifies which user is executing the actions because of the reasons explained in this next section.

Helping DevOps to protect complex IT infrastructures

Nov 3, 2017 by Karine Margaryan

Technology is now a central concern of almost every organization’s operations.  DevOps teams are increasingly the ones responsible for building, deploying, testing, monitoring, and supporting unique solutions —  for both internal and external customers. DevOps roles can include Development, IT Operations, System Administration, Quality Assurance, and even Customer Support.  
The broad range and scope of these activities would seem to stretch DevOps time and resources far beyond their snapping points. That’s why integrating good monitoring, alerting, and notification tools can be indispensable to a DevOps team.

Awesome ChatOps Workflows with Slack Dialogs

Oct 27, 2017 by Çağla Arıkan

We value being an early-adopter at OpsGenie. We try to enhance our integrations as soon as possible so that our customers can access to the latest capabilities provided by our partners.

Slack recently introduced a new feature, Dialogs, and we are proud to announce that OpsGenie’s Slack App integration is already updated to leverage the new Dialogs functionality! After Slack introduced Dialogs, we got really excited since we had a use-case built for it. If you ask what that feature means, we can simply explain it as a new interactive model which is able to get different information from you and then forward that information directly to the application. Usage of Dialogs is a perfect way to perform "Add Note" actions on an OpsGenie alert in your Slack channel in a more user-friendly way. Even before Slack introduced the Dialogs feature, we allowed the user to add notes to alerts by using slash commands. However, the new way is definitely easier to use.
