As reliance on online services increases, IT Ops teams have become more important than ever as they remotely manage incidents 24/7, across all applications, systems and networks.

Jason Walker, former head of the GNOC at Blizzard Entertainment, explains how CIOs and their IT Operations teams can adapt to the immediate and long-term challenges this crisis is creating, evolve their organizations to survive in the short-term and be well-positioned for success in the long-term.

The BigPanda Advantage for IT Ops from Home

Our customers shared the three most critical BigPanda capabilities that have enabled their transition to remote operations

Operations Console

Simple and intuitive, the BigPanda Operations Console helps remote IT Ops, NOC and DevOps teams accelerate real-time and historical root cause analyses. It visualizes real-time incident topologies, simplifies incident sharing with the right teams and tools, and much more.

Open Integration Hub

BigPanda’s Open Integration Hub provides a broad set of connectors and APIs that ingest alerts from monitoring, change tracking, and topology tools. It shares correlated incidents and probable root cause with users in collaboration, ticketing and notification systems.

Unified Analytics

BigPanda Unified Analytics helps IT ops managers and execs maintain visibility of KPIs and metrics using both ad-hoc and custom reports, even while working remotely. This helps easily measure, improve and communicate IT Ops metrics with other stakeholders.

Meet two IT teams. One lives in constant fear that somewhere, someone will change something seemingly benign and trigger the dreaded P1 incident. They spend entirely too many hours of their lives on calls between 15 different teams trying to figure out what caused the outage, while the clock ticks, MTTR rates skyrocket and customer satisfaction plummets. The other decided to take a phased approach to IT Ops modernization.
