GrammaTech Adds Dynamic Analysis to Product Portfolio with Cantata

Unit Testing Tool Helps Developers Build Safer Software and Achieve Compliance Goals

ITHACA, N.Y., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GrammaTech, the leading developer of software-assurance tools and advanced cyber-security solutions, today announced that the company is offering an advanced dynamic analysis tool. Cantata, a leading unit testing tool for C, C++, and Java, will now be sold and fully supported in the United States by GrammaTech. The addition of Cantata will complement CodeSonar, GrammaTech's flagship static analysis tool, providing development teams with advanced software analysis throughout the entire development process.

Cantata will also give teams the power to achieve key compliance certifications. The tool brings built-in guidance and reporting to help users navigate the complex process of meeting multiple international compliance guidelines. Currently, the product is certified to support the IEC 61508 (general industrial), ISO 26262 (automotive), EN 50128 (railways), IEC 60880 (nuclear power), DO-178B/C (avionics), and IEC 62304 (medical devices) standards. And unlike other solutions, the Cantata compliance toolkit is completely free.

"Our customers frequently express interest in dynamic testing, specifically looking to us for expert guidance in their efforts to comply with worldwide software certification standards," said Paul Anderson, VP of Engineering at GrammaTech.  "With Cantata, we are adding a great solution for achieving code compliance certification at a low cost."

GrammaTech partnered with QA Systems to bring Cantata to the US because it is the leading dynamic testing tool in Europe, where standards aren't just recommended, but legally required. Cantata works with embedded development environments and targets, and with an Eclipse UI, Cantata provides a complete environment for the creation, execution, and analysis of unit and integration tests.

"GrammaTech's deep technical expertise surrounding code quality made them a natural partner for us in the U.S.," explained Andreas Sczepansky, CEO of QA Systems. "The combination of static and dynamic testing gives companies significantly deeper coverage when reviewing code for defects. As a result, development teams can expect accelerated development cycles that yield higher quality code."

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
What are the new priorities for the connected business?

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
