Everyone knows this chart, right?

The later bugs are introduced, the more they cost. Of course, common sense. But it also happens to be true.

As the chart shows, very little bug detection is happening before testing, while a developer is coding. So, if you find more bugs when the cost of repair is least expensive and risky, you’re obviously going to get a big payoff.

Ok, so far you haven’t heard anything that every software development professional doesn’t already know. What everyone doesn’t know is that source code analysis can deliver this payoff.

We just published a few new case studies from Canfield Scientific, Overture Networks, and Polycom. Here’s a sampling of what these customers are telling us about the benefits from using Klocwork:

“Our code is more stable and reliable today, and I would say we are in a best-in class category when compared to other software companies in the industry. We can see this when development starts new coding and there is a very minimal dip in stability. Development also recovers faster and starts working on new products faster.”

“Many of our developers use Visual Studio and like the ability to see and address potential problems on-the-fly from their desktop. It’s not an intrusion for them – they find it to be a big time saver.”

Impressively, within just a few months of use, Klocwork Insight had resolved a major field issue that the company was dealing with. Even more critically, “Klocwork Insight also found three other bugs that had caused several field outages – this is a very significant achievement for us.”

Check out these case studies in full, and you’ll see how the benefits these customers are realizing all go back to the chart above – find issues earlier, make your developers’ lives easier, reduce costs, and build better software. Great to see our customers achieving these results!
