A large enterprise cybersecurity company’s top priorities are velocity and quality. The company’s Director of Engineering was tasked with building a team of hundreds of software developers and test automation engineers to quickly develop a high-quality product made up of over 150 microservices. To enable rapid, incremental releases the company’s software department adopted CI/CD, test automation, and a quality culture.
Even with a quality culture in place, the Director of Engineering started to see production issues. With hundreds of builds a day, numerous tools to support delivery at speed, ever-increasing application complexity, and no sufficient status on software quality, untested code changes escaped to production and the development team was losing control. The Director of Engineering concluded that this situation would eventually affect his team’s velocity if he did not update his approach to software quality engineering.
The Director began using SeaLights Software Quality Governance Platform in order to truly implement software quality engineering, and gain control of quality processes across the enterprise. Once the cybersecurity company began using SeaLights it was able to standardize its testing across the organization and focus development and testing efforts. The development team doubled its velocity and increased team efficiency by 60%.
