reinvents a classic game with an augmented reality twist. The game is not available worldwide yet;
that has not prevented users from downloading and catching 'em all. According to
a Forbes article
Evangelho, Pokémon GO is about to surpass Twitter in daily active users on Android and is #1 on Google
Play Store. Incredible success!

With OpsGenie you have the option of executing actions directly through our OpsGenie app. We have
described how this capability can be used to gather additional information and enable alert recipients
to assess problems efficiently in the post “You woke me up,
Directly through slack you can (1) forward alert activity to Slack channels and (2) allow users to

In the coming weeks OpsGenie will help buyers looking for a reliable, scalable, and customizable
alerting and incident management solution by assessing features, toolsets, and functionality in a
comprehensive comparison between OpsGenie, Pagerduty, and VictorOps through a series of detailed blog
posts. It is our goal to shed light on who does what, and the stark realities between the three popular
technologies. OpsGenie will concentrate on areas within our platform that we believe are extremely
important when looking for an alerting and incident management solution for the dev&ops and IT community
in general. This week we will focus on Email Integration.
PART 1: Email Integration -- A comparative assessment of the direct contrasts between OpsGenie,
Pagerduty, and VictorOps.
OpsGenie’s email integration enables customers to integrate OpsGenie with any system that can send
alerts via email. Email integration is the most commonly used integration method by our customers since
it is easy to use and almost any system out there can send emails.

For most of us in ops, it is vital for us to get notified asap about problems that impact the services
we provide. It’s often a race against time to restore the service or to prevent an outage. But not all
alerts require an immediate response, some can wait. Enabling users to deal with alerts that don’t
require an immediate response efficiently, is just as important in preventing alert fatigue, to ensure
we can stay fresh.
At OpsGenie our mission is to empower our users to be able to handle critical as well as non
critical/urgent incidents efficiently.

The OpsGenie team recently had a thorough and heated discussion (KAPOW!!) on who would
be better with on-call alerts and incident management,
Superman or Batman? Who would come out as winner when pitted against each other in a war of on-call
alerts and response time? So, we thought we would hash it out
here on our blog in a completely fictional format. We’ll try to examine each area of alerting and
incident management to see who we think we would want on our on-call team.
