PagerDuty Valuable Features

The scheduling feature is the main valuable one for us, because it was previously costing us time. For example, when I was doing the scheduling for the rosters, I would be spending maybe a day out of a month getting the rosters all sorted out. It was rather intense, and a fair chunk of time each month was dedicated to the schedules.

The flexibility in what we can send to it: emails, custom webhooks, and things like that.

We have our production and development environments. If an alert goes offline in the development environment, it's generally treated as a low priority. However, if anything goes down or alerts us from the production environment as a critical or high priority, then an engineer has to stop and fix it straightaway.

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.

The alerting functionality is quite good. It is one of the key parts of our on-call process, so that people can react when things are not working as expected. We trust it a lot. It definitely works well. We have never missed alerts or had situations in which we felt that we could not trust the alerting functionality of PagerDuty. Alerts in our environment could be caused by a specific part of the platform not running right. If a database goes down, for example, we will get an alert. There could also be errors in an application or a particular zone of infrastructure is down, or if service-level objectives are being affected for some reason. In all these cases, we will get alerts.
