Leading Development Testing Platform Ensures Safety & Reliability of Embedded Software

“It is refreshing to work with business leaders who are committed to shifting focus from defect detection to defect prevention,” stated Mike deFisser, VP of Worldwide Sales at Parasoft.

Parasoft, leader in Development Testing, Cloud/API Testing, and Service Virtualization, announced today that the world’s leading beverage company selected Parasoft’s Development Testing Platform as a strategic part of its mission to ensure the continued reliability and safety of its next-generation beverage dispensers.

The embedded software driving these dispensers must run flawlessly—not only to ensure that the dispensed drinks meet safety and taste expectations, but also to collect and report data that is critical for optimizing the company’s provisioning, servicing, and marketing operations. Software defects in this high-profile system would have substantial impacts on revenues, brand reputation, and legal liabilities. As a result, the organization decided to adopt Parasoft static analysis as the standard for ensuring that all code developed for this project—across numerous distributed teams, development platforms, and programming languages—satisfies corporate expectations around reliability, security, and performance.

“It is refreshing to work with business leaders who are committed to shifting focus from defect detection to defect prevention,” stated Mike deFisser, VP of Worldwide Sales at Parasoft. “We’re excited to help them achieve the efficiency gains that stem from this shift. They are already accelerating time to market and reducing development/testing costs—all while significantly reducing exposure to business risks.”

The organization selected Parasoft static analysis for its breadth and depth of analysis, accuracy of results, developer-friendly workflow, and easy extension to additional Development Testing practices such as unit testing, code review, and runtime error detection.

About Parasoft’s Static Analysis

Parasoft's comprehensive static analysis eliminates defects via multiple analysis techniques:

  •     Pattern-based analysis prevents defects by mitigating reliability, security, and performance risks as code is being written or modified
  •     Flow-based analysis exposes critical defects through sophisticated execution path analysis at integration time
  •     Metrics analysis identifies brittle or overly-complex code that impedes agility & reuse
  •     "On-the-fly" continuous analysis flags high-risk code as soon as the developer writes or edits it—like spell check underlines misspelled words as soon as they are typed
