Coverity Collaborates with HP to Bring Development Testing to HP Application Lifecycle Management

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 3, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Coverity, Inc., the development testing leader, today announced the integration of its development testing platform with HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). The combined solution provides IT with a new level of visibility into development by incorporating code quality into the overall definition and view of application quality, greatly reducing the risk of application quality issues in production without impacting time, cost or agility.

Enterprise users leveraging the Coverity development testing platform with HP ALM or HP Quality Center will be able to surface code quality defects discovered by Coverity® Static Analysis and FindBugs™ directly into their existing ALM workflow. The integration connects code quality defects to code changes and business requirements for enhanced development traceability across the lifecycle, from requirements to release. The combined solution also brings a greater level of collaboration between Development and QA by providing shared visibility into development related defects and quality issues.

"ALM adoption is most successful when the development workflow is modified as unobtrusively as possible," said Thomas Murphy, Research Director at Gartner. "Allowing developers to test their code for quality defects without leaving their workflow, and share this information across distributed teams, will reduce the time and cost of adoption, foster collaboration, and enforce a more effective quality process."

"Integrating development testing into the HP ALM workflow will elevate the strategic importance of development by creating traceability and measurement of development at every stage in the application lifecycle," said Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke, inc. "The integration provides Development, QA, and the Business with a common view of quality, starting with the code itself. By tying code quality to business requirements, QA gains visibility into the quality of the build before they start testing, and the VP of Applications gains visibility into the overall quality of the application to identify risk areas and prevent issues before they impact brand, customer satisfaction, or revenues."

"Development testing is an integral part of the application lifecycle to help reduce the time, cost, and risk associated with software defects," said Anthony Bettencourt, CEO of Coverity. "The combination of our two solutions brings together the most widely adopted platform for finding and fixing code quality defects in development with the first unified software platform to manage the complete application lifecycle. We are excited about collaborating with HP to bring our joint customers a new level of visibility and collaboration across development, QA and the business to meet the ever increasing demands for reliable, rapid software delivery."

The Coverity integration with HP ALM is an HP certified application, granted as part of Coverity's membership in the HP Enterprise Management Alliances Program as a Gold HP Software Business Partner. The integration is planned to be generally available on October 18, 2011.  

Additionally, Coverity today announced Coverity 5.5, the latest release of its development testing platform including enhancements to its core technology, Coverity Static Analysis. New features include enhanced code testing speed and performance, integration with a pre-configured version of FindBugs, enhancements to desktop analysis, and integration with Jenkins Continuous Integration Server.
