Parasoft Development Testing Platform

Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP) enables Continuous Testing. Leveraging policies, DTP consistently applies software quality practices across teams and throughout the SDLC. It enables your quality efforts to shift left–delivering a platform for automated defect prevention and the uniform measurement of risk.


Process Intelligence Engine

The award-winning Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) identifies software defects by correlating observations across the SDLC infrastructure (test tools, source control, performance monitoring, etc.). As the brain of Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP), "PIE slices" performs multivariate analysis alerting managers to hotspots that cause defects to be leaked into production.

Static Analysis

  • Broad support for languages and standards: Security | C/C++ | Java | .NET | FDA | Safety-critical
  • Static analysis tool industry leader since 1994
  • Simple out-of-the-box integration into your SDLC
  • Prevent and expose defects via multiple analysis techniques
  • Find and fix issues rapidly, with minimal disruption
  • Integrated with Parasoft's suite of development testing capabilities, including unit testing, code coverage analysis, and code review

Unit Testing

  • Unit testing industry leader since 1997
  • Rapidly build a high-coverage test suite
  • Easily extend and customize generated tests
  • Expose functional problems and crash-causing defects
  • Remove barriers to creating/maintaining robust test suites
  • Integrated with static analysis, code review — more

Code Coverage Analysis

  • Integrate coverage tracking from unit-level through application-level tests
  • Measure multiple metrics, including line, statement, block, path, decision (branch), simple condition, and MC/DC coverage
  • Generate and optimize test cases to increase coverage
  • Document coverage for FDA and safety-critical with robust reporting
  • Integrated with static analysis, unit testing, code review, and other Development Testing practices
Traceability for standards compliance


Bidirectional requirements traceability with Parasoft

  • Take control of requirements definition, management and testing
  • Link requirements with code, code changes, peer review, code analysis, manual and automated tests
  • Prevent unexpected changes and regression
  • Satisfy industry standard requirements, such as FDA, DO-178C and ISO 26262.
