Subscribe to Work Life Get stories about tech and teams in your inbox Subscribe When one of your IT services is on fire there’s no time to waste. Especially if that fire is blocking your users from getting stuff done. Rapid resolution tends to eclipse all else during an incident, often causing your team to ignore or forget pieces of the incident response process – like keeping people in the loop.

A lot of teams are asking us about how to do incident management when you’re suddenly remote. We understand. Going remote can be scary, and few things are scarier than having a service outage you aren’t prepared for. Nobody wants to be in a situation where an important service is going down and the engineer who can help isn’t answering on Slack. And if your company isn’t used to working remotely, it can be harder than ever to be on the same page during an incident.

There are as many ways to trigger an incident as there are new code deployments across the globe and, with the emergence of cloud-reliant businesses, uptime accountability has shifted from on-premise server teams to the service providers themselves. SLAs, SLOs, and websites dedicated to downtime have suddenly come to life in the internet age, and having a status page is now an industry standard.

When things go wrong, your users need to know – but it’s not always easy to determine what to say or how to say it. If you’re responsible for getting the word out to hundreds or thousands of users, it can feel like a heavy weight on your shoulders. The task at hand is urgent, yet must be handled delicately. As someone who’s handled incident communication on Statuspage’s status page – the mother of all status pages – I know how difficult these moments are.

Downtime happens. That’s a fact, and it’s nearly impossible to predict. But there are some days when the chances of downtime are higher. Maybe it’s higher-than-normal website traffic, or increased app sign-ups. When planned high-traffic days are on the horizon, it’s a good idea to spend some extra time preparing for the worst.
