Traditionally if a critical customer has an issue in the middle of your night, it wouldn’t be answered until the next day

Including PagerDuty

As your company’s infrastructure grows, so do the tools used to keep things up and running. The same is true for customer service tools to maintain high customer satisfaction in this always-on world. Because of that many customer service teams are already using Desk.com and PagerDuty together to maximize their time and their customers’ satisfaction. The new Desk.com App Hub provides teams at small and medium size businesses a central shop for all of the apps they need to do their jobs. All apps on the App Hub will easily connect with Salesforce Service Cloud1 instead of having to manage disparate apps.

“Fast-growing SMBs are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in today’s connected world. By leveraging the power of the Desk.com App Hub, PagerDuty provides customers with the proven tools to keep customer service at the heart of their business.”

Leyla Seka, GM and senior vice president, Salesforce Desk.com

Traditionally if a critical customer has an issue in the middle of your night, it wouldn’t be answered until the next business day. With the Desk.com and PagerDuty integration, your team can immediately get notified about top-tier support issues as they happen, and can then handle the situation appropriately.  Using PagerDuty and Desk.com to keep all concerned parties in the know will help maintain that happiness – incidents are fixed faster, support reps can accurately respond, and customers get the details they need.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.
