Hi Jodi,


Thanks for contacting with us. Opsgenie is a modern incident management platform for operating always-on services, empowering Dev & Ops teams to plan for service disruptions and stay in control during incidents.

Basically the name is coming from Ops of Operations and Genie is the genie. :)
