Parasoft's Policy Driven Approach

Policy-driven development bridges business expectations with specific quality practices to ensure that software development teams avoid shortcuts that may compromise reliability, security and performance. Get started by defining business-critical aspects of the application, such as compliance with industry standards, and easily setting your policies in the platform.
Parasoft automatically correlates requirements with automated and manual tests, source code, and development tasks, resulting in unprecedented real-time visibility into development processes, on-demand access to verification status, and bi-direction requirements traceability. Our centralized reporting system documents improvements and tracks status so teams know exactly which tests need to be rerun and which code needs to be re-reviewed.
Aligning software development activities, such as static code analysis, unit testing, peer code review, coverage analysis, and runtime error detection, with your organization’s business goals reduces risks associated with your software development lifecycle. The benefits include increased traceability, accountability, and early defect prevention, which helps you avoid costly recalls, and litigation or damaged market position.
