When a system is experiencing an outage or a performance issue, keep your end users informed on it’s status by using incident updates. As you get more information about service issues, be proactive in keeping your end users in the loop with the latest info and expected recovery time. Use Root Cause Analysis to examine resolved incidents to gain a better understanding of how the situation developed, how well the effort to fix the problem went and what could be done better next time. Where it’s appropriate you might wish to inform end users after the incident has been closed about what happened.
