MONROVIA, CA & San Jose, CA - April 1, 2014 – Parasoft announced that it will be featuring its newly-released Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) for embedded software testing at EE Live! PIE is a first-of-its kind solution that identifies software business risks while highlighting opportunities for SDLC process improvement.
The brain of the Parasoft Development Testing Platform, the Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine for Embedded Software Testing analyzes data from disparate systems and tools in the embedded software development infrastructure and identifies risks and opportunities for improvement based on the organization's priorities.
"The most advanced embedded software organizations are dealing with massive complexity at micro scale," explained Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer for Parasoft. "When tailoring particular features to a variety of target devices, the complexity of the automated build-and-test process can rival that of the code itself. Adding to that complexity is the fact that most of our customers have safety-critical applications where the risks are measured in potential for loss of life."
Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer of Parasoft, added, "Ultimately, the aggregation and intelligent analysis of the data generated from various sub-systems will deliver suggestions for optimizing the process as well as mitigating risks. You really need an analytics engine to accomplish this—humans can observe this array of data, but cannot consistently identify complex patterns."
The collection of raw observations across systems and disparate tools is the first step in transforming compartmentalized data points into process intelligence. The second step is the ability to process raw observations through correlation, advanced analysis, and the identification of patterns. Finally, observations are filtered based on the organization's policies to more accurately pinpoint findings that represent the highest risks associated with a specific stage of the SDLC.
