VictorOps incident-notification and management integration

VictorOps is the real-time incident management platform that allows DevOps teams to manage their on-duty schedules and deliver problem notifications. VictorOps provides teams with a virtual environment where they can prepare for, react to, and recover from each incident regardless of location or device. Dynatrace provides detailed problem and root-cause analysis for performance issues within your application and service infrastructure.
