TOKYO & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PagerDuty (NYSE:PD), a leader in digital operations management, today announced the expansion of its Japanese operations through a strategic partnership with Japan Cloud.

As PagerDuty scales towards $1 billion of revenue, Japan offers significant expansion opportunities for PagerDuty led by cloud adoption, digital acceleration and DevOps transformation.
