The power of combining API's (1+1 > 2)

Integrating plsql with different web applications, is extending the functionality of the database beyond just data management. But it is when we combine these API integrations, that we can really see the benefit of them. In this entry I will show how integrating just two different API's, we can create an easy monitoring solution, that can rival more expensive traditional choices.

What I will do, is I will combine the Airbrake API and the Pagerduty API, to not only track errors, but also implement a monitoring solution that can alert my DBA that something is wrong. I will show how we can use those API's to setup team based alerting and reporting on errors, and hint on how you could further imporve or extend the usage of this.
