We have a lot of people that want to know when our big apps go down. If an ordering app, for example, goes down and it impacts customers, we have a list of 4,000 people that want to know about it. We send them email templates we call Service Disruption Messages.

We get a lot of feedback on them - too technical, not technial enough, doesn't speak to what we need to do, is too scary, etc.

Does your organization have a similar major incident messaging system? Or do you not use email? What do your messages look like? Who is responsible for the text of them?

thanks,
Dan

Our organization implement emails groups notification by business service.

When a Major Incident done, the Incident Managers send email to this groups with a timeline of the incident in business words.
