"Software development teams in all industries are embracing Agile as a way to boost their team's productivity and be more responsive to their customer's needs," says Mike Laginski, Klocwork CEO.
"Regardless of how far along the Agile curve a team might be, developers are expected to deliver more software in shorter iterations, creating a need for new tools that help meet these productivity goals."
Built upon Klocwork's proven source code analysis technology, Klocwork Insight Pro introduces three new tools designed to allow development organizations to achieve greater iteration velocity while reducing the risk of bug debt.
Continuous static analysis Klocwork Insight Pro provides powerful, continuous static analysis that detects critical defects and
security vulnerabilities at the developer desktop, as code is being written. This onthefly analysis
provides developers with immediate visibility into errors being made, or vulnerabilities being left open.
With a noclick usability model, attention to code quality and security becomes a natural part of every
developer's editing process, ensuring the best code possible at the earliest stage in the development
Collaborative peer code reviews
Klocwork Insight Pro changes the model of traditional, inperson or scheduled code reviews with a
collaborative, peerbased tool that facilitates simple pre and post checkin reviews. Integrated with
popular configuration management environments and Klocwork's static analysis engine, code reviews
are conducted asynchronously over the web with Klocwork Insight Pro. Through a customizable RSS
feed, developers are notified of code that is ready for review and are able to quickly and easily identify
code changes, take part in threaded discussions around those changes, assign actions, and review
potential defects. This flexible approach to a traditionally heavyweight and unpopular practice ensures
bottomup adoption of this vital software verification process.
Automated code refactoring
Considered a development best practice and embraced by advocates of all modern development
methods, code refactoring is an integral part of the software development process. With Klocwork
Insight Pro, the complex task of refactoring is simplified. Using automated tools, developers can modify
their code towards overall patterns to achieve clean, easy to understand, and more maintainable code
designs without changing the code's function in any way.
"Agile practices are driven by the concept of keeping software quality high and having productionready
code at the end of every iteration," said Thomas Murphy, Gartner research director. "To achieve this
goal, software developers need appropriate tools and process support. Integrated tools that provide
developers with static analysis, refactoring, and collaborative code reviews can help make the potential
benefits of Agile a reality."
Klocwork Insight Pro will be generally available December 2009.
Klocwork' source code analysis solutions boost the productivity of software development teams while
helping to ensure code security, quality and stability of complex code bases. Through proven static
analysis techniques, Klocwork removes bottlenecks at the earliest stages of the software development
process and enables software developers to find critical security vulnerabilities, quality defects and
architectural issues quickly and accurately. More than 600 organizations have achieved higher code
security and quality with Klocwork.
