  • Quickly find owners, on-call engineers, and critical resources across all your services—whether discovered by Datadog, created via YAML, or imported from Backstage
  • Shorten new hire onboarding time with out-of-the-box answers to questions about system architecture, ownership, and different types of telemetry
Consolidate dispersed service knowledge and real-time observability data in a single place

Streamline collaboration during incidents

  • Quickly diagnose reliability issues by identifying services associated with triggered monitors, faulty deployments, breached SLOs, or new errors
  • Resolve incidents faster by automatically mapping all impacted services and gaining instant access to relevant owners, on-call engineers, runbooks, and dashboards
  • Minimize downtime by ensuring PagerDuty on-call coverage and viewing the incident status of every service next to real-time performance metrics

Promote observability best practices at scale

  • Improve response times for customer-impacting issues by ensuring that services are configured to send essential telemetry
  • Detect observability gaps at a glance by identifying services that are missing telemetry, SLOs, monitors, or critical on-call resources
  • Track and prioritize service improvement efforts across teams through daily Service Scorecards reports on observability best practices

Instantly tie recent version changes to performance regressions
