Is your delivery velocity hindered by a growing backlog of failing tests? According to a Cambridge University study, 50% of software engineers' time is spent finding and fixing bugs.(1)
With Undo's GreenTest solution, you can unblock your development pipeline and accelerate software delivery by turning your flaky tests green... and keeping them green.
Continuous Integration is the key to success for delivering at velocity; but there's a catch. To realize the full potential of CI, it requires a zero-tolerance approach to test failures: tests must turn green... and failures represent new regressions. Unfortunately, intermittent non-deterministic test failures combined with running thousands of tests every hour make this very challenging to handle.
Traditional methods like logging, printf and core dump analysis can be useful at times but rely heavily on guesswork - slowing you down rather than accelerating time to deployment. On average, 50% of engineers' time is still spent on software defect diagnosis and debugging. Yet, software is regularly deployed with both known and unknown defects - ticking time bombs deployed into production. 91% of software developers admit to having unresolved defects because they cannot reproduce them.(3)
Reproducibility is the fundamental problem in software defect resolution techniques.
Undo's GreenTest solution accelerates software defect resolution by eliminating the guesswork in software failure diagnosis. It provides full visibility and definitive data-driven insights into what your software actually did before it failed.
The solution - based on our Live Recorder product - resolves the technical challenge of reproducibility, simply by recording the program's execution as it fails. The recording file represents a 100% reproducible test case. No need to waste months trying to recreate the problem. Your engineers can get straight to analyzing the data in the recording artifact by replaying it backwards and forwards for speedy diagnosis.
Fix challenging defects that are blocking your development pipeline and keep to your release schedule.
Realize the full potential of your Continuous Integration investment: turn your tests green...and keep them green.
Speed up defect diagnosis by 25% and allocate more engineering time for delivering valuable features.
