Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly

It is being used with the Software Development department to test the value of features in small iterations, ensure implementations are working as expected before rolling out to all customers, to perform A/B tests of features and to have kill switches to enable/disable functionality on a permanent basis. Data gathered by the ability to use feature management in this way informs business decisions and the priority of the work being undertaken.

Through being able to decouple a deployment of code to the release of a feature the development teams and business teams can more effectively decide when, how and to whom a feature is being enabled. This makes work easier to implement and the value of the feature can be understood more effectively.
  • A/B or Multi Variant Testing as a methodology to gather insight from customer usage. Experimentation as a feature within LaunchDarkly offers information around the success of one variant over another and whether the experiment has reached statistical significance.
  • Being able to decouple deployment of code from the release of a feature is hugely valuable.
  • Development teams are empowered to manage features within their production applications for reliability or testing purposes.
  • Some areas of the Experimentation functionality aren't as feature rich as other analysis platforms.
  • Managing specific permissions, roles and the teams sometimes requires configuration within LaunchDarkly itself rather through another system (such as through Azure AD).
  • Improved developer experience with some teams moving to Trunk-based Development.
  • Increased deployment frequency due to smaller code releases.
  • Validation of the technical and business value of work is achieved more quickly through smaller pieces of work and through experimenting with a small group of users before a feature gets to 100% of customers.
Feature Flag management and Experimentation are both very easy to use.
LaunchDarkly is a very fast and very reliable service. We have not experienced issues from the service itself, this is partly down to the control at a local level within the applications of how to handle any potential issues to ensure the applications continue to work for our customers.
