The Challenge

Software teams aim to release as fast as possible but there are various reasons that hamper velocity. Slow builds, failing and flaky tests, and clogged CI pipelines end up with slow release cycles. As a result, productivity falters, costs increase, and end users might be impacted.
Tests slow down the process of releasing software to production
Without quickly debugging test failures, detecting flaky and slow tests, and identifying trends, so much time is wasted with old school testing practices.
Not enough visibility of CI/CD complicates DevOps transformation
Delivering reliable, and robust software safely at a fast pace is pretty hard when you don't have enough visibility on your CI pipelines and don't know where to focus to troubleshoot problems rapidly.
Assessing the level of risk of software changes is grueling
It's difficult for code reviewers to know the impact of the PR in production. They want to know and focus on the parts of a code change that matter most to their users.
Slow releases bring underperforming developers
Developers can't focus on business logic. Waiting for long CI and testing queues, and being blocked for stability, uptime, and error reduction decreases developers' productivity.

The Solution

Visibility and insights into the health and performance of tests and CI/CD pipelines. Assess the risk of code changes, reduce build times, and release high-quality software, faster.

Monitor and optimize your Github Actions Workflows (CI/CD pipelines)

Foresight provides actionable insights to optimize the performance of your workflows and resolve problems rapidly. Monitor resource usage metrics, understand workflow costs, duration, success & failure rates, jobs with the high failure rates, and more with Foresight.

Identify slow and unreliable tests

Long-running test suites and frequent failing tests are the most common reason for slowing down build times and hence reducing deployment frequency. Foresight provides visibility into test runs, enabling teams to quickly debug test failures, detect flaky tests, identify slow tests, and visualize performance over time to identify trends. Foresight integrates with APM tools like Thundra to provide end-to-end traceability.

Automatically assess the level of risk of software changes

Foresight correlates the changes to the codebase with the test coverage reports to determine how much of the changes are covered by the tests, empowering teams with clear quality risk metrics to facilitate the right change management process. Pull requests can be automatically approved or passed through reviews depending on the quality risk to ensure only high-quality builds are moved to production.

Reduce testing cycle time dramatically

Foresight tracks the code tested by each test and determines the tests that should be run to test the changes introduced to the codebase for each pull request. By prioritizing the subset of tests impacted by a pull request and the tests that are more likely to fail, Foresight can dramatically reduce the test cycle times without compromising quality.

Secure by Design

Security is our priority at Sidekick

  • Code never gets transferred to Foresight servers.
  • Everything is encrypted in transit and at rest.
  • All of the data stores are behind VPC and they are not accessible from the outside of the private network.

"Foresight helped visualizing the hotspots and prioritize the tests that needs to be optimized first"

Testcontainers' own test suite is massive, because nothing is worse than an unstable testing tool. We always knew that there are opportunities to reduce its execution time by optimizing some of these tests, but Foresight helped visualizing the hotspots and prioritize the tests that needs to be optimized first. With this kick in the... err... build, we are ready to stop procrastinating and start optimizing!
