smartDevelop enables developers in-house and off-shore to reduce development time and create more maintainable code - John Conte, Enterprise and Solutions Architect, smartShift

smartShift by Cambridge Technology Enterprises (NSE: CTE), the leading provider of automated optimization of complex IT systems, today announced its latest Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model for code development and quality assurance solutions. Named smartDevelop, the new solution assist developers, development and quality assurance managers to automatically capture, review, and correct code issues and errors prior to releasing code for functional testing. With its automated and integrated solutions, smartDevelop enables developers to build their applications in compliance with the newest technology standards from SAP, maintain high-quality custom code, increase code performance, reduce costs, increase staffing flexibility, and save overall time in the development process related to SAP® solutions. smartShift is exhibiting smartDevelop in booth 3030 at the SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference being held in Orlando, May 14 -16.

“In many cases, maintaining high-quality custom code can be challenging for companies,” said John Conte, Enterprise and Solutions Architect at smartShift and a guest speaker presenting at the ASUG Annual Conference. “smartDevelop enables developers in-house and off-shore to reduce development time and create more maintainable code. It increases code quality across the board, understands and corrects custom code in an automated fashion and is integrated with SAP’s development process.”

smartDevelop leverages smartShift’s award-winning parser-based automated solutions, providing:

  • Automated code analysis and correction: smartDevelop is an automated code correction tool for developers. It captures code from all developers in the development process and automatically analyzes and corrects code to improve performance, and help ensure compliance with company standards, SAP-recommended syntax, security and regulatory requirements.
  • Accelerate development process: smartDevelop proposes the automated code changes for the developers’ review, reducing time spent on their manual work, while accelerating the overall development process.
  • Extensive rule sets: smartDevelop is a revolutionary code analysis engine that uses up to 200 rule sets when detecting and transforming code. This extensive rule set covers compliance with company and SAP standards, performance, and security, further ensuring that all code is captured and analyzed with CTS integration.
  • Complete security and data privacy: smartDevelop can be deployed inside the customer’s network, ensuring security and data privacy. No online connection is required to enable smartDevelop functionality.

“Maintaining outdated code base is more complex, performs slower, and costs more than modernizing the code based on the ABAP® programming language,” said Stefan Hetges, CEO of smartShift. “Only a handful of programmers fully comprehend older coding constructs. Also, security and compliance issues can remain hidden in the old, obsolete and even unused code, resulting in overall system instability and poor performance. We see tremendous advancements with smartDevelop – it takes less time to correct, less training needed, while improving code quality. Its automated code correction solutions will assist developers to achieve faster yet efficient code upgrades and development with custom applications.”

smartShift is a member of the SAP Consulting Partner Program in North America and its code-discovery capabilities are available through the SAP Upgrade Assessment service delivered by SAP Services in North America. Named as “Cool Vendor in the SAP Ecosystem, 2012” report published by Gartner for its automatic ABAP-based correction solutions, smartShift strives to develop innovative solutions for successful business management integrations.
