PagerDuty Expands Partner Program to Help Integrators and Managed Service Providers Scale Digital Transformation Initiatives
Carahsoft and Estuate among the first partners to sign on to new program aimed at addressing customer needs in new markets
SAN FRANCISCO – May 14, 2020 – PagerDuty, Inc. (NYSE:PD), a global leader in digital operations management, today launched its expanded PagerDuty Partner Program for System Integrators (SIs), Consultancies and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to help companies scale their digital transformation initiatives. This program enables leading global and regional IT services, consulting and business solutions organizations to provide distribution, reselling and professional services worldwide. Through these partnerships, PagerDuty will maximize the value of its platform implementation from incident management to digital operations maturity, in an era where speed, scale and customer experiences matter most.
“Many of today’s enterprises still have operations that are largely manual and reactive. To succeed in our digital world, they need to become real-time, automated and proactive,” said Jukka Alanen, SVP Business Development and Corporate Strategy, PagerDuty. “A majority of organizations also lack the in-house resources and expertise to make this shift. Through this new program and strong network of partners, we can help transform and mature their digital operations, processes and practices, and serve more organizations globally, faster and more efficiently.”
The program’s partners bring a rich mix of solution, industry vertical and geographic expertise to serve unique and complex needs across DevOps, ITOps, CloudOps, AIOps, Customer Service, Security Operations, and Industrial Ops. The program offers support across all parts of real-time digital operations, including detecting and understanding issues, responding, orchestrating, and automating real-time work, as well as continually analyzing and improving operations.
“We are excited for the launch of PagerDuty’s partner program and the opportunities this opens for Carahsoft and our reseller partners to better meet our public sector customers’ real-time visibility needs for digital operations. Agencies need to ensure continuous mission delivery for the citizens they serve, and PagerDuty is well positioned to help government IT teams detect and respond to outages and better manage their digital operations across the organization,” said Terry Drinkwine, VP of Sales at Carahsoft, which serves as PagerDuty’s public sector distributor.
PagerDuty’s partner program helps support digital transformation initiatives through:
- Customized, strategic support: Plan, design and implement operational transformation initiatives for each organization’s specific needs
- Resources and expertise: Bring expert resources and capacity, technical know-how, program management and understanding of a client’s unique needs
- Education and Training: Provide expertise, training and best practices for joint customers.
Balaji Varadarajan, VP of Customer Success at Estuate explains why his company joined the PagerDuty Partner Program, “Estuate specializes in digital transformation and helps organizations become agile by implementing state-of-the-art IT Service Management solutions. Through our partnership with PagerDuty, together with our expert consulting services, we provide a critical component in streamlining customer experience processes and end-to-end issue resolution.”
