Discover how Bodybuilding.com simplified the lives for its on-call teams, lessened the burden on senior staff, shortened issue resolution times, and discovered a new way to share diagnostic information using Slack, a cloud-based team messaging and collaboration tool. Slack opens up new ways to manage, monitor, and control database environments.
We'll discuss future plans, including Slack-driven automation and natural language queries that will distribute or eliminate many low-level tasks and tactical work, freeing DBAs to focus on more important efforts.
Learning Objectives:
• Learn how we used Slack to unify messaging and notifications into a single interface, providing greater control over how, what, when, and why we're informed of events.
• Discover how Bodybuilding.com leveraged Slack to solve common complaints by on-call teams—alert fatigue, false alarms, being tied to a laptop or VPN, compartmentalization, and low or limited visibility of issues.
• See how to use the Slack API to interact with a database to allow remote management, automation, and natural language query and control by end users.
