CustOps changed their resolution workflow with Datadog RUM. We first assess where the error is coming from using RUM dashboards. If users from a single office see slowdowns—but there are no errors on Apixio's backend—we notify the customer IT department that the issues stem from their side, without escalating to the Engineering or DevOps teams.
