TEL AVIV, Israel, November 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SeaLights, the first cloud-based, continuous testing platform designed to speed up quality assurance (QA) cycles and achieve the highest quality results, today announced its launch out of stealth mode and into Beta along with $11 million in funding. The round was led by TLV partners, with participation from serial investor Oren Zeev and previous investors including Blumberg Capital. While continuous delivery is becoming standard practice, companies are in the dark in understanding their quality level in order to confidently release applications. Eran Sher and Alon Eizenman founded SeaLights in September 2015 with the mission of solving this problem and creating new testing solutions and tools for QA managers, DevOps teams, and developers that not only maintain quality at high speeds, but increase it. The SeaLights quality management platform enables quality analytics across all tools, environments and tests, including functional test code coverage. This makes quality a quantifiable metric that drives releases instead of putting them at risk. Both Sher and Eizenman are DevOps veterans who previously founded Nolio (acquired by CA Technologies), one of the first release automation and continuous deployment solutions, in the early days of the continuous delivery revolution. "We witnessed delivery speeds going from one or two releases a year to tens and hundreds a month, but hand in hand with that, new quality challenges cropped up," said Sher, CEO and co-founder of SeaLights. SeaLights CTO and co-founder, Eizenman adds, "Continuous integration and delivery have revolutionized how we develop and ship code. As our need for speed grows so does the frequency of code changes and releases, but testing must evolve to keep up, both in terms of speed and in terms of quality. This is the challenge that every QA manager, development team, and DevOps team is contending with."
