Cranston, RI (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
McCabe Software announced that its recently expanded long running University Program offers computer science departments the opportunity to license McCabe IQ Enterprise Edition, the most comprehensive software quality management solution, for classroom use at no cost. Current/Past participants in the McCabe University Program include Carnegie Mellon, Colorado State University, Stevens Institute, University of Alabama, University of California, University of Tennessee, University of Texas, University of Virginia and many others.
McCabe IQ objectively measures software quality through advanced structural static analysis, providing a complete assortment of code quality indicators and measures across several popular programming languages and development environments. McCabe IQ produces flow maps that provide a clear picture of what’s going on in an architecture, greatly reducing the amount of time required to identify structure, structural challenges, and potential vulnerabilities.
“It’s critical that tomorrow’s software engineers and decision makers learn the leading edge software security, quality assurance and testing methods that are used in leading enterprises around the world,” said Dale Brenneman, V.P., Software Quality Solutions at McCabe Software. “McCabe created its University Program to provide this technology for classroom use to advance the goal of improving tomorrow’s software.” McCabe provides participants in its University Program with a single server license of McCabe IQ Enterprise Edition, electronic delivery of the software and documentation, and access to technical support resources for the length of the school term.
“McCabe IQ has been successfully used in several advanced computer science core and elective courses at Rivier University,” said Vladimir V. Riabov, Ph.D., Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at Rivier University. “For example, in Spring 2014, 49 Rivier graduate students took CS680 Software Quality Assurance course sections and submitted their project reports with deep analyses of complex Java and C++ code using the McCabe IQ tool. This unique experience will definitely help them in searching for jobs and in advancement at their companies.”
Students who utilize McCabe IQ in the classroom setting through the McCabe University Program often transition easily to effective McCabe IQ use in a corporate or government setting. This is primarily because in both settings they are using the same tool and features to setup, request, and focus analyses; and the same tool graphical and textual reports to analyze results. Also, in both settings they are obtaining the same in-depth structural code and code coverage analysis required for the objective thinking processes required for increased software quality and software testing thoroughness. This ultimately gives the graduate an advantage of already having exposure to the McCabe IQ product thus decreasing the learning curve while increasing their marketability.
