We at OpsGenie continuously work hard to add new capabilities to our product. We are proud to announce the BETA release of a new resource that will help alleviate daily stress: Mass Notifications!
A few months back we held a webinar in conjunction with Logentries where we demonstrated “2 Use Cases for Using Logs in Incident Management.” In the webinar we examined traditional log management and IT alerting tools integrations along with the future of incident management with enriched alerts. Now if you’re already an OpsGenie or Logentries user or using monitoring and collaboration systems, like New Relic or Slack, this blog post might be of some interest to you. You will learn about improving your alert notification processes and incident response times.
You spend time creating your OpsGenie configuration, so it’s now crucial to ensure that your account configuration is safe and reproducible just in case something goes wrong.
Git is a distributed version control system that records changes to a file or set of files over time. This allows tracking changes to each file and recalling a specific version later. It’s primarily used by developers as a source code management system; however, it can and should be utilized in Operations, too. Git is efficient for not just code, but also for all kinds of alternative files such as configuration files.
Earlier, OpsGenie introduced the new “OpsGenie Configuration Management Tool.” This tool uses OpsGenie Java SDK to export OpsGenie configurations as JSON files enabling customers to take advantage of Git to manage the configuration data. Got that? The tool also supports restoring configurations, which means that it not only tracks configuration changes, but also reverts to a previous configuration if needed.

Falls Church, VA – January 25, 2017 –OpsGenie, a leading alerting and on-call management platform for engineering and operations teams, today announced record growth for 2016 and new strategic advisors for the company.
Slack is great!
It is not just a messaging app; it is so much more with its apps. OpsGenie’s integration with Slack is so thorough that it has become a top app in the Slack app directory!
OpsGenie's Slack app has built-in slash commands, which is an efficient way to execute actions on a channel. For example, you have the option to create an OpsGenie alert in a channel by typing a command like /genie alert [alert message] for [user team]. Slash commands are very powerful and cover the majority of the use-cases. However, there may be more you want to do in your Slack channel.
As opposed to the traditional software business, the modernday software business is platform-based, which empowers integration with a widening world of products and services. Thus enabling new business ecosystems. The resulting ecosystems enable results and achievements that are way more effective and capable compared to individual product offerings. In this new software world, companies co-evolve their capabilities, cooperate to support consumer needs at every stage, eventually conceiving the next big innovations of technology.

Monitoring is an important part of DevOps. You need to monitor; your servers, containers, and now your serverless functions. Function as a Service (FaaS), also called “Serverless” architecture, is a relatively new concept. AWS Lambda is by far the most popular FaaS/Serverless solution in the market. It is an event driven, serverless computing service.

Are email notifications enough to control your IT infrastructures behavior? No, not anymore. Email notifications are no longer as effective when there are other channels of communication available; such as phone calls, SMS or iOS & Android push notifications.
