LambdaTest TAS accelerates shift-left testing for development teams

LambdaTest has recently launched Test-at-Scale (TAS), a test intelligence and observability platform, to help development teams with shift-left testing.

Businesses today heavily depend on automation testing to accelerate their development cycle, but developers still have to wait a long time to get feedback as a lot of unnecessary tests are run, leading to clogged pipelines, low productivity, lack of clarity, and slower release cycles.

TAS solves this deep-rooted problem with its three-pronged solution–Smart Test Selection, Flaky Test Management, and In-depth Analytics.

Smart Test Selection intelligently interprets and runs only the relevant subset of tests that are impacted by the code update or change, thereby helping teams reduce testing time by 95%. Flaky test management helps users find, flag, quarantine, and manage flaky tests.

On top of this, development teams and decision-makers can easily get visibility into KPIs like Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), flake rate, and frequently failing tests, among others, to help with better decision-making.

Currently, TAS supports Mocha, Jest, and Jasmine for testing JavaScript codebases and has plans to extend the product support for Java, Python, and Golang in the near future.

“In today’s demanding software development world, testing is everyone’s responsibility. Developers, QAs, and decision-makers have to work together to ensure a flawless product. Shift-left testing is the need of the hour, and TAS will help businesses with just that,” said Asad Khan, CEO, LambdaTest. “TAS was until now in beta, but we believe it is now time for the world to experience TAS. Development teams can easily integrate TAS into their existing CI/CD pipeline, and the results will immediately be visible. TAS is open source, and we welcome contributions from the community to help developers leverage the platform to its full potential.”

LambdaTest recently raised $45 million in a venture round led by Premji Invest with participation from existing investors. The company has also launched HyperExecute, a next-gen smart test orchestration platform that helps testers and developers run end-to-end automation tests at the fastest speed possible.

LambdaTest’s platform is used by over one million developers and testers globally. The company has run more than 100 million tests since its inception and has grown its business by 300% in the last year. Using the company’s offerings, its customers were able to achieve 95% quicker time-to-market, increase their release productivity by 62% and identify 67% of issues prior to launch.
