Feature flagging and experimentation across services: From theory to reality

Asa Schachar & Lucas Reis

Compass needed a feature management platform that could easily turn features on and off, target features to different groups of users, enable experimentation on different configurations of a feature, and integrate across their different stacks and services.

With the help of Optimizely’s platform, Compass was able to achieve its goals of creating such a powerful and maintainable system. Asa Schachar breaks down the company’s journey from theoretical needs to actual implementations. You’ll learn from Compass’s experience and gain valuable insights on architecture, interfaces, user identification, tracking events, QA, and many other gotchas that come with enabling a feature management and experimentation platform across several services and teams of a growing organization.
