[+] Process Visibility and Control
SDLC quality metrics are fragmented across key systems such as requirements, build, and source control management. Parasoft aggregates and correlates this system data through Parasoft Concerto, delivering a comprehensive view of your development processes.
With process measurement in place, Parasoft adds our 20 years of experience to assist your organization to make credible process improvement gains. The result is visibility that improves an organizations ability to deliver quality software and to continually increase productivity.
[+] Automated Defect Prevention
With 25 years of experience helping the majority of Fortune 500 companies implement a broad range of validation and verification practices, Parasoft knows what it takes to establish a sustainable, repeatable, and predictable quality process.
Parasoft engineered a process for ingraining Development Testing and other quality tasks across the SDLC in a way that improves rather than impedes productivityas well as an automated infrastructure to drive this process. This methodology is known as Automated Defect Prevention (ADP), and it is described in detail in the book Automated Defect Prevention: Best Practices in Software Management by Parasoft CEO Adam Kolawa and Dorota Huizinga (Wiley-IEEE, 2007).
ADP provides a practical approach to software development and management that makes quality a continuous process throughout the software development lifecycle. ADP can be applied to any team, regardless of its structure, projects, or development method.
The ADP methodology features the following principles:
Establishment of Infrastructure "Build a strong foundation through integration of people and technology"
Application of General Best Practices "Learn from the mistakes of others"
Customization of Best Practices "Learn from your own mistakes"
Measurement and Tracking of Project Status "Understand the past and present to make decisions about the future"
Automation "Let the computer do it"
Incremental Implementation of ADPs Practices and Policies "Move carefully to minimize resistance and increase the chance of success"
