Collecting and examining data from multiple sources can be a tedious process. The digital world is constantly evolving. To stay competitive in this fast-paced environment, businesses must frequently test their products and services. While it’s easy to collect raw data from multiple sources, it’s far more complex to interpret it properly.

Organizations with enterprise customers who want to grow their customer base would have their QA heads run around 100,000 to 1 million tests in the ballpark.

A QA manager leading a team of 10 to 20 testers running multiple tests across LambdaTest, like web automation, app automation, and HyperExecute, often faces the challenge of keeping a tab on how the team runs the tests in every particular product.

Along with this, several other concerns arise, like whether they need to visit the dashboard of every particular product to check the number of tests passing and failing errors and how they can streamline these processes so that the team performs better and thus the product performs better.

Since Analytics is a crucial aspect of QA and plays a significant role in making the product successful, LambdaTest has developed a one-stop solution for accessing, analyzing, and streamlining your QA processes and test data – LambdaTest Analytics!

LambdaTest Analytics

LambdaTest’s centralized test analytics platform allows you to unify all your test execution data on a single dashboard so you can make an informed decision. The newly added customization features will enable you to make your dashboards more useful with widgets and modules and share metrics specific to your stakeholders by building custom dashboards.

LambdaTest is the only platform allowing users to customize their analytics dashboard per their testing requirements. Along with this, a simple click of a button now lets you share real-time test execution data with your team. This will enable you to close the gap between data, insight, and action to make better and faster decisions.

Users can also customize their analytics dashboard by adding their favorite widgets. Currently, users can categorize their data across the LambdaTest product offerings – Web Automation, App Automation, and HyperExecute. Under the product categories, users are provided with a list of modules and widgets. They can easily add a suitable widget for analyzing their data.

Let’s discuss the analytics modules you will get with the all-new LambdaTest Analytics!
