Ultima Release - xMatters

The age of Ultima is upon us! While dragons, wizards, and dungeons may only appear on a fantasy map, it takes preparation and resilience to conquer the highest-level incidents in the real world. Let's explore what's new in your xMatters inventory: To help teams better understand the criticality of incidents, use service categorizations to sort your technical and application services into different tiers.

xMatters Support - Broadcast Groups

In xMatters, groups determine how and when people are notified using on-call schedules, escalation timelines, and rotations. But what if you don't use complex on-call schedules, or need to notify all members of the group simultaneously? Broadcast groups make it easier for customers who don't always need on-call schedules. Let’s take a look.

xMatters Support - Dynamic Groups

Dynamic groups are teams of users based on selected criteria. A dynamic group's members change depending on who matches the selected criteria at the time of an alert. For example, you can create a dynamic group that includes all users who have specific training (such as first aid or fire safety) in a particular physical location within your organization. You could base this on a custom user property that indicates the level of training each user has. As each user gains a certification, the group is updated to reflect that change.

Welcome To xMatters - Ep4 - Initiating Incidents

Everyone makes mistakes. So, it is important that when they do, we can act quickly, resolve the problem, and understand what went wrong to reduce the chances of it happening again. When your business is suddenly impacted by an unforeseen event, it’s important that you can efficiently report the problem and call for help as soon as possible. With xMatters, you can initiate incidents quickly and target specific groups with the vital information they need.

Welcome To xMatters - Ep3 - Sending Messages

There’s nothing better than a smoothly run operation but life is full of unexpected surprises. When things don’t go to plan, and help is urgently needed, no time can be wasted. Getting a message to a resolver on time is just as important as having a resolver to call in the first place! And letting people know that help is on the way is especially important to keep the situation calm until they arrive.
