Coverity offers Integrity Control to help manage code quality

The tool, which is dependent on Coverity Static Analysis, lets users set and manage code quality and security standards

Coverity is releasing on Tuesday a code governance offering intended to help software development houses manage code quality.

With Coverity Integrity Control, companies can set and manage code quality and security standards and identify suppliers or teams that are introducing code risk or slowing time to market. An executive heat map offers a single-pane view of code sources, including suppliers, projects, and teams, to identify which entity is in violation of code integrity policies. Developers also can use the heat map to determine the context of a code problem.

Users can manage standard code testing policies for visibility into development risk across a software supply chain. Coverity Integrity Control is dependent upon Coverity Static Analysis, which shows a list of defects but is not used for setting policies.

"[Coverity Integrity Control is] allows organizations to set policies defining what code quality and security really means for their organization," said Andy Chou, Coverity CTO. The company seeks to address issues with both internally developed code as well as open source code and code from suppliers.

With its new product, Coverity is addressing situations in which software engineers must deal with external factors, such as dependencies on open source code, said analyst Dave West, of Forrester. "There's a lot of things outside their control, so you need to increase the visibility of the code quality," West said. These days, software development is as much about integration as it is development, he said.

The term "code governance" is starting to appear more in vertical industries where quality of software is a regulatory concern, Chou said. The lack of governance over the software supply chain can put the reputations of Global 2000 brands at risk, Coverity said. Coverity Integrity Control pricing starts at $20,000; Static Analysis pricing begins at $25,000

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
