Top Challenges

Poor On-Call Management: Their call center model for handling incidents was rather inefficient due to the lag between incident discovery and acknowledgement, leading to an increase in MTTR
No Escalations: Current incident management process did not provide room to set up escalation policies when an incident was unacknowledged, leading to increase in MTTA
Manual Alert Forwarding: Previous solution was not scalable when critical alerts had to be forwarded when the on call person was off duty
Unreliable Analytics: Incident Response metrics were manual and hence, inaccurate and not effective for measuring reliability and team productivity
