Empowering operations teams to effectively respond to unexpected incidents
For on-premises and private cloud deployments
Derdack’s enterprise alerting software automates alerting processes and enables a fast, reliable and effective response to incidents threatening the continuity of services and operations. This is in particular important for 24/7 operated mission-critical systems and IT.
Our critical alerting software combines four pillars to effectively respond to incidents – automated alert notifications, convenient duty scheduling, ad-hoc collaboration and anywhere incident remediation.
“… reduces the level of stress and worry from being away from a PC.”

“Enterprise Alert eliminates the ‘human factor’, i.e. any human latency, in critical alerting. It is unmatched when it comes to automation and deep-level integration.”
Enterprise Alert provides automated, and persistent alert notifications by voice, text, push, E-Mail and IM. It tracks the delivery of notifications, acknowledgements and replies and reacts automatically on non-delivery or non-reply by utilizing escalation chains, on-call schedules and presence information.
Always know who's on call
Enterprise Alert enables convenient scheduling of on-call duties by drag & drop in any browser. Based on scheduling information it can then alert the right engineers at the right time. Backup engineers and stand-ins are also available.
Anywhere ChatOps, incident sharing and conferencing
IT service staff or engineers who are alerted often need to communicate with managers, on-call staff of other teams or subject-matter experts. Derdack’s Enterprise Notification Software provides the perfect toolset for a real-time, anywhere collaboration experience.
