NEW YORK – Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, announced today the launch of Datadog Apps, a program for partners to build applications that provide seamless workflows between partners’ products and the Datadog platform. Launch partners for Datadog Apps include Embrace, Fairwinds, Harness, LaunchDarkly, PagerDuty, Rookout, and Shoreline, whose apps are all available on the Datadog Marketplace today.
Datadog Apps allows technology partners to deliver their application capabilities as native applications inside the Datadog platform. This delivers a seamless workflow for Datadog users to create and view custom data visualizations, respond to identified issues, and make changes to their applications and systems. For example, users will now be able to acknowledge or resolve an incident, turn on a feature flag, or launch a remediation workflow, all from within the platform.
“Datadog has quickly become the de facto monitoring and observability platform in the organizations we serve, providing insights drawn from an organization’s infrastructure, logs and application data. To act on these insights, users often have to log in and ‘swivel chair’ to other applications, which can be disruptive to their workflow and lead to a disjointed user experience,” said Marc Weisman, Vice President, Product, Datadog. “With the release of Datadog Apps, we are deepening our integrations with technology partners to deliver a more seamless experience for our users, so that they are better able to maintain the health of their systems and their businesses.”
“The functionality of our application on top of our existing integration makes the story of combining LaunchDarkly’s powerful feature management platform with Datadog observability even stronger,” said Brandon Mensing, Principal Product Manager, LaunchDarkly. “Customers can now actively manage feature flags while continuously monitoring for key performance metrics and security signals. Because we leveraged the Datadog App SDK, we were able to quickly build and ship our App. Datadog’s community of 16,000 customers can now more easily release new features with greater control and confidence.”
“With PagerDuty, Datadog customers can experience more effective incident response while increasing visibility and accountability throughout the incident lifecycle,” said Veni Garg, Senior Director Product Management, Platform & Ecosystem, PagerDuty. “Creative integrations are an ongoing focus for the PagerDuty team as we aim to drive value for customers who will benefit from a connected ecosystem. We’re excited about our Datadog App and what our mutual customers can now do without needing to switch tools. Status Dashboard by PagerDuty and Incidents by PagerDuty can be added directly to users’ dashboards to get a quick, real time
view of their team’s system health and respond to high-urgency incidents directly from the Datadog interface.”
