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."

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
