Launchable Flaky Test Insights (beta) Announced
September 15, 2021

Launchable, the intelligence platform layer for all software testing, announced their latest addition to the platform, Flaky Tests Insights (beta).

Access to these insights will help development teams strengthen CICD pipeline observability by quickly identifying and pinpointing the top flaky tests in a test suite to prioritize fixing the appropriate tests.

Flaky tests are a pervasive problem for development teams. Unreliable tests are an issue for development velocity, where development teams waste time diagnosing test failures to separate the real from false failures.

Data driven insights on flakes can help teams prioritize their efforts on fixing the costliest issues first.

"Unreliable of flaky tests are a systemic problem in eroding development velocity, said Alastair Wilkes, Director of Product Management at Launchable. "It has been amongst the top 3 problems that development teams have consistently asked us to solve. The Launchable Intelligence Platform can easily identify and prioritize these tests helping teams to concentrate fixing the most impactful problems."

Launchable now analyzes test runs to identify flaky tests in the suite so customers can fix them. To do this, Launchable assigns each test a flakiness score from 0-1, with higher scores indicating higher likelihood of flakiness, giving developers a clearer picture of which flaky tests to tackle first. The dashboard can be used as an information radiator for the development team to go fix issues that are impacting them the most.
