Connecting people across tools and processes is vital for collaboration in any business, but it shouldn’t drain your time and resources. ChatOps is a collaboration model that encourages automating operations tasks with a chatbot in a platform.

ChatOps has become an integral part of software development and IT operations as teams rely on automated notifications to take the place of manual alerts. In the past, if there was an outage notification, someone would need to manually find and see that notification.
