Frequently asked questions

Why do engineers, DevOps, and SREs choose LaunchDarkly over Split?

Products often aim to help one team, while creating additional work for other teams. For instance, experimentation tools work great for gathering data on which user experience is performing best, but fall flat at enabling new processes for launching features at scale, supporting DevOps programs, and aiding Ops teams to migrate between service providers without affecting end users. 

LaunchDarkly instead aligns the needs of all teams, starting with developers. We provide a first-class API and powerful, thoughtfully written SDKs to make feature management foundational to your business. When LaunchDarkly is at the foundation, you can empower all teams -- development, operations, product, marketing, and sales -- to participate in providing the best experience for your customers.

Why do product teams choose LaunchDarkly over Split?

In addition to the challenges you face today, LaunchDarkly supports your growth across all areas, including the ability to build feature management practices for any use case needed by your teams.

LaunchDarkly customers use feature management to do everything from: simple A/B testing and experimentation, to advanced roll out strategies such as progressive delivery and ring-based deployments, all the way into actions like complex infrastructure migrations, subscription monitoring (feature entitlements), and customer support.
