Squadcast's Year in Review, 2020

Thank you for inspiring us this year! As is becoming a tradition, we've put together a collection of product updates, case studies & content, that tell the story of Squadcast in 2020.

2020 has been a difficult year for all of us. As the world saw lockdowns and organisations pivoted to working from home, the need to provide uninterrupted services (be it for online shopping, streaming movies, or banking) increased exponentially. At Squadcast, we are proud to have played our role in helping our customers get better insights into their systems so they can become even more reliable.

This year we helped OTT providers, financial institutions, and e-commerce among many other organisations, make reliability a core and fundamental process. We have also been recognized by G2 as Momentum Leader & High performer in the IT Incident Management & IT alerting space.

As is becoming a tradition, we've put together a collection of product updates, case studies, and content, that tell the story of the past year at Squadcast.

Squadcast's Year in Review

For us, the key product highlights of the year have been:

1.Reducing Alert Noise

(a) Improved Alert Suppression Rules‍

As part of our continuous improvement process, we rolled out completely new and improved Suppression Rules. This latest version provides more flexibility and fine control over the nature of alerts being suppressed, thus preventing alert fatigue by curbing unnecessary or non-actionable alerts.

(c) Incident Status Based Deduplication

2. Squadcast API V3

We released the latest version of Squadcast Public API which helps you access Squadcast features within your account. It allows you to configure users, services, group incidents, and more to help further reduce noise and speed up response times.

3. Improvement: Escalation Policies

4. View Who is On-call

5. Schedule Overrides

6. New REST APIs - Incidents & Squads

We've published a few more REST APIs to help access some basic Incident and Squads functionalities within your Squadcast Account.
