TLDR

We’ve partnered with Heap to help teams rapidly iterate on A/B tests with key customer segments to find the digital experience that best suits users’ needs. Teams using Flagsmith’s feature flags can now view data about flag performance alongside customer behavioral data in Heap. Using Heap’s analysis tools, you can quickly surface the insights you need to optimize your feature rollouts.

Evolving the build and deploy process

The ability to decouple deploy and release is key to improving your product development process. Development teams can push code straight to production, multiple times a day. Product managers or marketers then have the opportunity to test new features, iterate, and ultimately use data to drive the best possible user experience. 

Introducing the Heap integration

With our new Heap integration, product teams can now automatically see the state of a feature flag for identified users in Heap — no engineering needed!

Heap delivers access to behavioral data along with the tools that help you group and analyze customers based on how they interact with your features. Flagsmith allows you to deploy features into production quickly, and then only release them to a subset of users for testing purposes. With the integration, you can release key features to user segments based on their interaction with your site or product. Then you can immediately track the results of your targeted deployment and optimize accordingly. 

Quickly test and analyze new features

Want to test a new feature with your power users? Simply roll it out to that group and measure the reaction before rolling it out to your broader user base. 

For every digital product, running rapid A/B tests helps you scientifically fine tune the experience for your users. To do A/B testing right, however, you need two types of tools: the software to execute the test, and the software to evaluate the results. With this integration, you can easily execute your A/B tests in Flagsmith, and then analyze the results in Heap!
