By running only the relevant tests, you can reduce the testing cycle time by 30% to 80%.
SeaLights provides the answer to a fundamental challenge faced by most large organizations: delivering top-notch software swiftly. Running every single test for every build or release can be a resource-intensive process that slows down the development pipeline.
SeaLights was looking for a highly specialized software partner that could work confidently across multiple technologies, and adapt to clients in different time zones and business cultures. The checklist is continuous: the new team should understand the Java-related ecosystem at the lowest level, and handle non-standard problems that can't be solved with answers found on Stackoverflow. Last but definitely not least, Sealights needed a team with deep understanding of enterprise customers in banking, insurance, telco, whose business processes are more than complex. A partner that can easily combine enterprise-level thinking and a start-up work pace.
Fast Time to Value: Rapid Customer Onboarding Instead of Complex Solution Adoption
SeaLights faced challenges related to the long product onboarding time. The full process demanded a lot of work by DevOps, developers, testers and product owners on the customers’ side before they could assess if their business will benefit from subscription.
Modifying existing pipelines used to build application versions was particularly complex. Why so? There is no standard way to write build scripts, so every case and every system looks different. The client had to adapt to the agent's requirements, and this required modifying the scripts, testing them, and ensuring backward compatibility and continuity of work. The next step was to configure the tested application, taking into account the changes made to the build scripts. The configuration demanded a lot of effort by the potential client on a sensitive level of the selling process, when they were not yet sure if the subscription will provide promised benefits.

Results & Benefits
Our team helped to create a product’s Demo Version, which shortens the time to value. The client can test core functionalities and capabilities of the product after days, not months. Demo version features the most crucial functionalities and allows the enterprise client to assess quickly whether they can benefit from the subscription.
Working in a spirit of partnership and dedication to the customer's success, our team initiates changes that have a significant impact on the operation of the system, such as the implementation of a queuing system or changes that result in space savings in the cloud.
