OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LaunchDarkly, the feature management platform company, announced today it has been recognized as a “Cool Vendor” in DevOps Technology by Gartner.
Over the past 12 months, LaunchDarkly has experienced a 500% growth in its customer base with new customers like Docker, GoPro and TrueCar. The company’s rapid customer growth marks B2B and B2C adoption of feature management solutions.
“With LaunchDarkly’s platform, we were able to ship our GoPro Plus web applications two weeks early, ultimately helping us meet deadlines and ensure a successful launch,” said Andrew Maxwell, Software Engineering Manager at GoPro.
Today, LaunchDarkly serves over 10 billion feature requests daily, and has expanded its mobile offering to connect to over 400k devices. LaunchDarkly can help your team eliminate risk inherent with moving faster. We give back control over your releases through percentage rollouts, feature kill switches for unexpected events, and better user feedback through code driven A/B testing.
LaunchDarkly eliminates risk for developers and operations teams from the software development cycle. As companies transition to a world built on software, there is an increasing requirement to move quickly, balanced with the desire to maintain control. Feature flagging is an industry best practice of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. Each flag can easily be turned off independent of code deployment (aka ”dark launching”) so new functionality can be tested without interruption and with a built-in kill switch.
