SeaLights, a software quality governance platform, raised $8.6 million in a funding round led by Cisco with participation from a new investor Wipro Ventures, a strategic investment arm of Wipro.
The company plans to use the new funds to expand its sales and engineering initiatives and further develop its platform with new features.
As enterprises transform their IT estates and adopt DevOps to stay competitive, achieving quality at speed becomes a major challenge. The SeaLights AI-driven platform helps software engineering teams meet this challenge head-on by helping them increase their release quality and velocity through the application of advanced analytics across the entire software development and testing life cycle, identifying quality risks, and allowing teams to release with confidence.
SeaLights recently launched Intelligent Test Execution, which automatically identifies and executes only the exact subset of tests needed to validate the latest code changes.
“Over the past few years, IT enterprises have invested heavily in Digital Transformation and Cloud initiatives to support increased release velocity. Yet, the challenge of balancing release speed and completing long testing processes remains a bottleneck,” said SeaLights’ CEO and Co-Founder, Eran Sher.
“Modern organizations increasingly need to monitor their IT environments through the development and test stages, in addition to the production environment,” said Adam Leftik, vice president of Enterprise Architecture and Strategy for Cisco’s AppDynamics. “SeaLights’ focus on an intelligence platform that overarches and monitors the test environment can help customers achieve more agility and faster release times by revealing the risks being introduced into the production environment.”
SeaLights enterprise customers include Fortune 500 companies across the banking, insurance, retail, telco, health, cybersecurity, and media sectors.
