VictorOps Promotes Information Reuse in Next Series of Integrations; Starts with HipChat

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VictorOps, the leading collaboration and incident management platform designed for DevOps teams, today announced a first-class integration with Atlassian's HipChat. With this integration, VictorOps users can create a HipChat room that pipes in the VictorOps feed and allows chat conducted in that room to be captured in the VictorOps timeline.

VictorOps recognizes that the use of chat is important to information capture and reuse processes. VictorOps customers use a combination of VictorOps timeline updates while away from the office and enterprise chat tools like HipChat, Slack, Flowdock, or Campfire while at the office. Subsequently, the next series of integrations will directly address ChatOps, in order to make the use of chat based collaboration easier for DevOps teams. HipChat is the first of these integrations.

"Regardless of how you communicate, it's critical that all of the information is captured for things like post-mortem reporting," said Todd Vernon, co-founder and CEO, VictorOps. "Ultimately our mission is to reduce time-to-resolution and information reuse is key to that mission."

With this integration, the VictorOps retrospection-reporting tool – Post-mortem Reporting - will now include all conversations that take place in HipChat. In the heat of the moment, all ChatOps commands, conversations, escalations and so on will be captured in VictorOps as part of the problem resolution. So at the end of the day, DevOps teams will have a documented account of how the problem was solved making uptime reporting and future problem resolution easier.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
