Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"OpsGenie has many features, such as email notification, SMS notification, roster, tracking of the tickets. Automation, like scripting, is also possible. There are also features for maintaining the history of the tickets and all the solutions related to how it was resolved previously. If there are similar kinds of tickets, we can look at how a person is working on that ticket. If he doesn't have any idea, you can look back at a similar ticket and solve it as the previous person did it.""The integration feature is the most valuable. It provides a lot of customizations for the integrations we use."

"PagerDuty is very stable and very reliable.""A cool feature is that it helps us to understand the flow of the alert. If the alert was coming to the current on-call and he didn't catch the call or didn't notice it for any reason, it starts being escalated automatically, according to the escalation schedule, or to other teammates. You can see the flow very easily on your phone or via the website, if you want to do a post-mortem.""The most valuable feature is definitely the flexibility of the schedule. The mobile app is quite also good for what we do: for receiving alerts, acknowledging, assigning, adding new responders. It has rich features for our needs.""It reduces the amount of white noise. If something comes through, then it will alert somebody. However, if it's a bit of white noise that comes through at night, then it gets dealt with the next day. Everything is visible to everybody. It's not just a single person getting an SMS, then going, "Oh, I'm not going to worry about that." The visibility to everybody on the team is one of the great things about it because it reduces the white noise."

Cons
"It should have a lot of plugins. It should also come with cloud integrations, which are not that great with OpsGenie as of now. It should have AWS, Azure, and Google cloud integrations. It should also provide automation, that is, it should open somewhere, like orchestration. Something like the orchestration that ServiceNow is doing. That would be great. Orchestration is the main thing. If OpsGenie comes with stack down feature, not completely but some part of it, and orchestration is there, that would be beneficial.""OpsGenie needs to keep up with its competitors in terms of new features and pricing."

"Something that needs to be improved, is adding multilingual support.""There is room for improvement with the time schedule. The way the schedule currently works is you assign all the team members in one schedule and it automatically spreads them around throughout the schedule... It would be better to be able to edit the schedule and place my team members where I want, or at least to have that option in addition to the automatic process.""The solution's analytics are okay. I don't think the features, at this point, give you a lot of insights. We have actually been trying to get insights from it but it hasn't really given us a lot of extra points to explore. We were looking at the number of alerts to see where many of the alerts were coming from. We never managed to get many insights on this.""Because of the way you have to structure the rosters, if an engineer has to go on leave (or something), you can't just go in and reassign/take this person out of all of the different rosters that they're in. You have to go into each of the rosters and take them out. There might be a roster for business hours, after hours rotation, and monitoring deployments. Each time we need to take an engineer out of the pool, e.g., if they're sick or on leave, then we have to go and touch all of those rosters, updating and replacing them. Whereas, if we could just take the person out and have it automatically fill in the rostering, then that would make life a lot easier for managing it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"From the pricing perspective, they are on the higher side as compared to other competitors."

"Licensing costs are around $700 a month, and the only additional costs, are phone costs in some instances.""The cost is quite high. But if you want to get a full-featured application and you have a big team...""If you add more people, then you have to pay more, which is always a thing with the SaaS solutions.""If we wanted phone calls or additional SMSs, we would have to pitch up for those. They give us so many per month per user, then we have to pay extra if it goes over that."

Overview

Users are empowered to manage their contact details and notification preferences in a single location, hence the administrators don't have to maintain this information at each application. OpsGenie is a cloud based service with reliable, distributed architecture that is replicated in multiple data centers, and monitored around the clock. The lifecycle for each alert, notifications, actions taken by users, are recorded and reported to enable admins to easily analyze what happened. No more wasting time, digging up log files. No more finger pointing.

Most enterprises employ multitude of tools for IT management: for monitoring, ticketing, configuration and change management, etc. Although each of these tools may be individually capable of sending notifications via email or SMS, it is a burden for administrators to maintain the same information in each of these multiple, disparate systems. 

OpsGenie enables organizations to consolidate notification management into a single management system. OpsGenie enables users to maintain their own contact details and preferences in one place, eliminating duplication of data, reducing administrative overhead.

PagerDuty is an agile incident management solution that integrates with ITOps and DevOps monitoring stacks to improve operational reliability and agility. From enriching and aggregating events to correlating them into actionable alerts, PagerDuty streamlines the incident management lifecycle by reducing noise and resolution times. With hundreds of native integrations with operations tools, automated scheduling, advance reporting and guaranteed availability, PagerDuty is trusted by over 7,000 organizations globally to increase business and employee efficiency. The company is headquartered in San Francisco and backed by leading venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners, Baseline Ventures, Ignition Partners and others.
