Reducing Risk and Improving Software Quality in Continuous Integration Environments
BOSTON (PRWEB) October 29, 2008
Michael Madden, vice president, engineering at Avid Technology, said, "In a complex environment using multiple agile and more traditional processes, we take advantage of every product to automate the delivery of high quality software. Coverity's products provide automated source code analysis to ensure the integrity of our code, while AccuRev improves our ability to isolate code changes and share code during the development process. By integrating products from AccuRev and Coverity, we have improved the overall productivity of our development team and accelerated our ability to bring high quality software products to market."
AccuRev and Coverity have formed this partnership to deliver additional value to their common customers in the embedded software, ISV, and other mission critical software development markets. With product integration, joint customers of Coverity and AccuRev can now fully automate the process of moving code through the release process while ensuring source code integrity and successful builds every step of the way.
Development organizations rely on advanced source code analysis products from Coverity to identify potential quality defects and security vulnerabilities early in the development cycle when they are most cost effective to eliminate. To manage and accelerate the delivery of their mission-critical code, development organizations use process-centric SCM technology from AccuRev to enable efficient change and configuration management for complex parallel, geographically distributed and agile development environments.
For additional information about the benefits of combined source code analysis and source code management, Coverity and AccuRev will present a CMCrossroads webinar titled "Reducing Risk and Improving Software Quality in Continuous Integration Environments" on Thursday, October 30 at 1:00 a.m. ET.
