Forrester TEI Study reveals numerous Everbridge benefits

Although the benefits of deploying Critical Event Management (CEM) are becoming widely accepted, organizations can often struggle to demonstrate the tangible ROI to their key stakeholders, and can face an uphill battle when it comes to securing budget. So, is it possible to put a value on Critical Event Management?


Celebrating 20 Years of Empowering Resilience

Over 20 years ago, our founders envisioned how technology could be used to create a redundant, scalable, and resilient solution to quickly and reliably alert entire populations in the face of critical events. In that time, Everbridge has built a category-leading, unified critical event management platform trusted by more than 6,500 global organizations.


Embracing the active user paradox

Question—when was the last time you purchased a new product and sat down to read the manual end-to-end before getting started? Ask this question to a room of 10 people and you’d likely get one or two hand raises, even though reading first could save you time and preempt many of the questions you’re likely to ask. Herein lies the problem when it comes to creating a SaaS product.


On-Call Management

On-call management is a process for managing after-hours support. Cloud on-call scheduling tools allow self-service and mobile access. Multi-channel communications (email, SMS, phone, mobile push notifications and chat) ensure that the alert gets through. AlertOps sends rich alerts, so the on- Call support engineer has all the information they need to know.


Alert Escalation

An alert escalation can be triggered when the primary support engineer does not respond to or acknowledge an alert within the escalation policy time limit. Keeping managers and stakeholders informed during an incident can help improve confidence in the support team. Once an escalation policy has been established, alert escalations can be automated to ensure consistency.


Why an Incident Commander is crucial to ITOps

It may be counterintuitive to tackle a problem without knowing exactly what the problem is, but an incident commander often does just that. In fact Rob Schnepp—founding partner at Blackrock 3, an Alameda, California-based incident management consulting group—says identifying the root cause of an incident is typically secondary to addressing the symptoms.
