We apply advanced analytics and data-science-directed troubleshooting to let operators find the root cause of issues in seconds. VictorOps is incident management software purpose-built for DevOps. By centralizing information and offering high-powered integrations, VictorOps makes on-call suck less by empowering devops teams to collaborate and reduce mean time to acknowledge/repair.
