What you will learn

This guide walks through the typical progression of an in-house solution that we have seen through many customer conversations. From dev-driven to business-driven use cases, the challenges grow almost as fast as, if not faster than, the list of requirements. Teams face multiple decision points to continue investing in an in-house solution or look at external options. Not all these use cases will apply to your feature flagging practice, but they do reflect a very common progression.

As feature flagging grows in importance, the challenges teams face often grow faster than the list of requirements.

This guide includes:

  • A walkthrough of the typical use cases for a feature flagging system based on our customers’ experiences
  • Top challenges of building a feature flagging system from the ground up
  • A worksheet to help you make scope and cost estimations for an in-house solution
  • And much more! Download the free guide to day.
