CLEVER NEEDED A BETTER ALERTING SYSTEM

  • Wanted to create meaningful alerts based on sophisticated analytics, not just static values, to reduce alert noise
  • Needed a self service solution that is easy to adopt and wouldn’t require learning new query languages
  • Required a solution that could keep pace with Clever’s autoscaling infrastructure and services without needing manual reconfiguration

RESULTS

  • Dramatically reduced the alert noise and operational failures using real-time analytics
  • Teams now create and monitor their own metrics, troubleshooting their own services
  • SignalFx has helped the entire organization become proactive about scaling, load testing, and managing how the business reacts to demand

Clever is the platform that powers the classrooms of tomorrow. Founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, one in three innovative K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom.
