How Squadcast enabled better operational visibility at YourStory

We got our whole team on Squadcast. The free unlimited stakeholders feature took care of all the visibility issues we were facing with our previous alerting tool. I firmly believe that an alerting system needs to be as efficient as any other service by being consistent, and with Squadcast we achieved precisely this goal. We were able to connect the incidents from various monitoring applications to the right stakeholders. Achieved better operational transparency, collaboration and assurance of SLAs

Challenges and Solutions
Challenges
Solutions

Visibility: Visibility across departments came at a steep price as there was a cost associated for every stakeholder

Complete Visibility: Free and unlimited stakeholder licenses allows customer support, product managers and others to get on the same page as operations

Analytics: Unable to measure MTTR and MTTA with their current alerting tool

Squadcast Analytics: Squadcast Runbooks resolve incidents quickly and bring down MTTR significantly

Unpredictable Cost: During a massive migration, billed multiple times for the same alerts thus increasing overall cost of alert cycle

Pricing Clarity: Fair, Transparent and flexible pricing

Difficult Scheduling: Non-intuitive feature of their current tool made scheduling a tiring task

Easy Scheduling: Automated scheduling leads to quick & accurately routed on-call notifications
