Sprint planning meetings are focused around user requirements, development constraints, time estimates and product plans. One thing that is usually missing is a clear picture of product quality. The reason this important information is missing from most sprint planning sessions is that development organizations are missing data about product quality. It is not known how well the product is maintained and what needs to be done to improve software quality.
SeaLights is a platform that collects data about development projects and produces a Test Gap Analysis report with this missing data. The Test Gap Analysis report helps teams balance new features and maintenance work, by highlighting high-risk code areas. At SeaLights, we believe that when teams are aware of product areas that are at high risk of quality problems, they can devote time during a sprint to proactively invest in quality.
