All of our on-call teams are setup and receive critical alerts. Our process flow is started with a ServiceNow Incident and then if it meets the critical alert status, xMatters takes it and alerts the proper parties. We don't have a bridge conference calling system other than Skype and sending out invites for them to join. Makes it kind of messy, with xMatters we are able to send an alert out to their mobile device for the appropriate parties to join. I'm hopeful we can use this in our restaurants for refrigeration systems if there is a power outage or hardware failure. Along with their weather monitoring system for when storms come.

It has been a great improvement from our other vendor we used to have.,API calls, we can create an API ourselves to integrate with other applications. This allows more teams to be notified of a critical alert instead of waiting for someone to call them when a problem is reported. The on-call schedule where you might need to have a replacement is fairly simple. You can easily change with someone else and still keep the rest of the schedule in place. It also sends an email to the person you are trading with so they know when they are on-call. Their support team is really helpful and quick to respond when you open a ticket.

We use xMatters for our alerting on critical matters. ServiceNow is our incident management system and it ties into xMatters. When a critical alert is generated it will notify the appropriate party. I'm trying to see if two other departments can use it. We are looking for a refrigeration system and for weather alerts when bad storms are coming.

xMatters is being used by our team as a notification tool for our monitoring products. It helps us to quickly address the right people to work on a specific issue/alert/message.
  • Ease of usage
  • Different methods of integration with other tools and applications.
  • Fast learning curve.
  • The search functionality when looking for past events can be a little tricky.
In our scenario we are using xMatters to integrate with IBM Omnibus where Omnibus receives different types of events from our monitoring tools and fires xMatters notifications for our on call groups.
