SNAP’s product teams test new features with a subset of users as often as 10 to 20 times per day. Utilizing dashboards within Splunk software, SNAP’s development team reports that it can see in real-time increases in engagement and exactly how different A/B tests are performing. This new environment enables SNAP Interactive to iterate more quickly – ultimately benefiting users with an improved, more engaging product.
