PagerDuty Community Update, December 7 2023

Hello community! 👋

The holiday season is here, and I can already picture myself sitting by the fireplace, enjoying a cup of hot coffee. However, we are not ready to say goodbye to the year just yet!

The team has been busy making plans for the upcoming year, while also actively participating in events like AWS re:invent. Mandi and Dormain attended the event, and I hope you had the chance to meet them if you were in Las Vegas. If not, there will be other opportunities.

During re:invent we released a video of PagerDuty Copilot, the new GenAI assistant for critical operations work.
Work more efficiently. Protect more revenue. Build greater operational resilience. PagerDuty Copilot is the AI assistant operations teams trust to help them manage business-impacting issues in seconds, not hours. From event to resolution, PagerDuty Copilot’s automations help you resolve issues faster, reduce risk, and control costs. If you didn't get the chance to watch the video do it now!

This week, Dormain and other PagerDuty colleagues have been attending Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference in Las Vegas and the feedback has been great. Looks like Dormain's session rocked! 🤘

On the open source world, we released new capabilities for the PagerDuty plugin for Backstage. With this new release you can create services in PagerDuty directly from a Backstage Software Template. Imagine creating a new service based on a template provided to you and automatically onboard that same service into PagerDuty and configure the PagerDuty Card in one step! 🤯

If you haven't looked into it and you're using Backstage, visit our new documentation page.

✍️On the Blog

Jeli is now part of PagerDuty! This deal represents a strategic alignment of visions, technologies and goals that will have a lasting impact on the industry and our customers. In particular, adding Jeli to the PagerDuty Operations Cloud will help improve enterprise resilience, reduce the impact and risk of operational failure, and lessen the need for costly point solutions.

To know in detail what this acquisition means for you, our valued customers, as well as what it means for the future of incident management read Dan McCall's blog post.
