Anodot is a real-time analytics and automated anomaly detection system that discovers outliers in vast amounts of time series data and turns them into valuable business insights. Using patented machine learning algorithms, Anodot isolates issues and correlates them across multiple parameters in real-time, eliminating business insight latency, and supporting rapid business decisions through its uncovered insights. With its scalable SaaS platform, Anodot provides typically siloed teams – BI, R&D and Devops – with a single, unified system for both business and IT metrics.
By adding a PagerDuty Channel for Anodot alerts, and sending Anodot alerts to PagerDuty, you enjoy the benefits of Anodot ML anomaly detection and alerting capabilities combined with PagerDuty alerting functionality implemented in your organization.
If you need help with this integration, please contact Anodot Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.

PagerDuty Alert Example
Anodot's integration with PagerDuty also includes the following additional features:
- The ability to send metric charts to PagerDuty.
- The ability to send "alert updates" as "alert open" to PagerDuty.
These two features can be seen in the example below.
In addition, there is also mapping between the Anodot Alert severity and the severity field in PagerDuty, as described in Severity Mapping.
For further information about how to activate either or both of these options, contact your Customer Success manager or email@example.com.
