Automated remediation is no substitute for root cause analysis. But, you need to alleviate the immediate problem faced by your customers while you schedule root cause repair by your dev team. If you go to the ER with a heart attack, it’s the wrong time to hear about your diet or high cholesterol.

We've automated testing, configuration, and deployment - we also need to automate repetitive incidents, and we need tools that make makes root-causing transient issues much easier by capturing all the debugging information whenever a bad condition is observed.


  • What is automated remediation and why do we need it?
  • How is automated remediation different from existing observability and incident management tools?
  • How does automated remediation improve availability and eliminate repetitive on-call tickets?
