You probably already have business-critical applications that are subject to an SLA or an OLA. If the application presents challenges, communication to your business is essential to give precise information on, among other things, scope, any work arrounds and a possible time frame when the business can work normally again. But what if it’s not your entire business that works in your business critical application? Could it not be advisable to inform just those users?
You might also have a print server or a website that your users are dependent on. These can also inform Statusload in case of a crash.
Or what if you have an application that needs updating? Wouldn’t it be in everyone’s interest to inform about the upcoming event?
With Statusload can determine who receives messages. This allows you to maintain workflow for those users who do not use a faulty application, but rather provide timely information to affected users.
