Customer Testimonials

Our SRE team has been carrying pagers for over 20 years and the thought of logging into a tool we haven't touched in weeks is a nightmare. Thanks to Datadog Workflow Automation, we now have the ability to kick-off workflows automatically, gather critical information, and make informed decisions within seconds, without having to alert our team at 3am.

Chief Architect of SaaS, Precisely

We use Datadog to automate the day-to-day operations of our multiple production environments, enabling faster reaction times and allowing the system to self-heal before any symptoms emerge. Embedding workflows in Dashboards, next to charts and rich text notes, enables our operators to act easily and decisively when servicing infrastructure and customer requests.

Co-founder and CTO, InScreen

Workflow Automation helped us develop an automated alert system to manage incidents more efficiently, all within the familiar Datadog interface. Being able to automatically kick-off workflows in response to alerts reduces the cognitive load during stressful firefighting events, allowing us to focus on resolving issues with greater ease.
