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. :)

Thanks @Gökçem Yiğit I was just curious if there was a story behind the name like there is for Trello. For example why they chose genie to be part of the name.
