What’s the difference between and Blameless?

Like, Blameless offers end-to-end incident management. However, there are a few key differences between the two products.

Slack native response vs adopting a new web UI lives in Slack, so you can run your incidents end-to-end where you already work following a simple and intuitive flow. This makes easy to adopt, and accessible to use. have unmatched user experience. Their Slack integration is so intuitive that I didn't need to explain anything to my colleagues before they were full converts. I simply told them to use it and they did. We've only been using for a month and they are already so core to how we manage incidents that we wholly depend on them, and I ain't bothered by that

G2 Review

Although Blameless offers a Slack integration its primary interface is via a dedicated web UI. This means there are more steps required to configure it.

Accessible to whole organization vs Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) focussed

Blameless is primarily targeted toward SREs. If in your organization incidents are SRE-specific, and other teams don’t need to get involved much this may work well for you.

On the other hand, is designed to be accessible to your whole organization. This makes it easier for non-technical stakeholders — such as Customer Support, Compliance, and Leadership — to get involved in and have visibility of incidents going on across the organization.

While SREs are a key persona we build for, and we offer valuable SRE tooling like integrations with GitHub to track incident PRs or a first class Catalog to manage your services, we always ensure we can be used by non-technical people too.

In practice, this means you won't find us asking for template strings or code snippets to configure your instance: you'll have a web dashboard that anyone from your organization can use, even if we still have a Terraform provider for those who prefer config-as-code!

Native Status Pages vs integration with third-party providers offers Status Pages natively to power incident communications outside of your organization.

We offer public, private and internal Status Pages that are integrated with your incident response workflow, and have automatic and manual update capabilities. You can use sub-pages to allow updating many status pages at once, useful if you have a page per-customer.

Blameless does not offer Status Pages natively, and instead offers integrations with third-parties that you're required to buy separately. This is similar to the Atlassian Statuspage integration that we've deprecated since building our own Status Pages.
