LDRA Extends Comprehensive Analysis and Testing into Russia’s Safety-Critical Industries
|By Business Wire

the leader in standards compliance, automated software verification,
source code analysis, and test tools, announced today that it has chosen Prosoft
as a distributor of the LDRA
tool suite and certification
services to customers in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent
States (CIS). As a prominent provider and integrator of technologies for
safety- and security-critical markets, Prosoft is ideally positioned to
deliver expertise and support of the LDRA tool suite in developers’
With this agreement, LDRA extends its reach to companies that face an
increasing need to certify safety- and security-compliant systems. The
growing volume and complexity of code in the safety- and
security-critical markets has driven companies to seek out automated
software testing and verification
systems to avoid the prohibitive costs and schedule overruns endemic in
a manual compliance process. The LDRA tool suite, with its ability to
configure process and coding standard rules, is ideal for Prosoft
customers who must adhere to international regulatory guidelines as well
as stipulations from Russian regulatory agencies.
“In addition to meeting safety- and security-critical standards,
companies in Russia and around the world must manage other factors such
as cost, schedule, and liability,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director
of LDRA. “With our tools, companies can incorporate requirements
standards whether international, national, industry, or in-house and
apply them across their entire development life cycle. Because the LDRA
tool suite can then automate the tracking, testing, verification, and
documentation of these requirements, developers save unprecedented time
and cost while also reducing corporate risk.”
For Prosoft, LDRA’s ability to bring compliance rigor to the application
layer meets a pressing need in Russia and the CIS. Historically, Prosoft
has delivered a wide portfolio of hardware and software solutions
founded on safe hardware and qualified operating systems from companies
such as Wind River and QNX. However, the increasing complexity and
volume of code in such solutions has challenged Prosoft customers’
ability to verify application code and provide a wholly certified
system. As a quality tool already qualified in Russia, the
LDRA tool suite can be extended to support security analysis and
compliance, which creates an opportunity for further streamlining
through re-use of already qualified code.
“By gaining the ability to achieve end-to-end analysis and verification
of the application layer through the LDRA tool suite, Prosoft can now
meet customer needs for a completely safety- and security-certified
system,” said Nikolay Gorbunov, Embedded Software Platforms and Tools
Product Manager at Prosoft. “In Russia, where adoption of international
safety and security standards more frequently complements the existing
regional criteria, a framework that enables developers to detail all
requirements and then track those artifacts throughout the entire
application life cycle represents a significant efficiency breakthrough.
Such efficiency has a direct impact on our customers' schedule and
By way of 10 branch and over 30 reseller offices in Russia and the CIS,
Prosoft provides local-language support to a broad customer base of
automated-control and embedded-systems developers. Through
standards-specific templates and industry-tailored compliance processes,
the LDRA tool suite offers immediate value to the Prosoft customer base
safety- and security-critical industry sectors.
For more than forty years, LDRA has developed and driven the market for
software that automates code analysis and software testing for safety-,
mission-, security-, and business-critical markets. Working with clients
to achieve early error identification and full compliance with industry
standards, LDRA traces requirements through static and dynamic analysis
to unit testing and verification for a wide variety of hardware and
software platforms. Boasting a worldwide presence, LDRA is headquartered
in the United Kingdom with subsidiaries in the United States and India
coupled with an extensive distributor network. For more information on
the LDRA tool suite, please visit www.ldra.com.
Since its founding in 1991, Prosoft Ltd. has grown to become a leading
provider of automation technologies throughout Russia and the CIS.
Prosoft supplies hardware, software, and other technologies, as well as
training, support, and integration, to developers of automatic-control
and embedded-systems products. As such, the company plays a critical
role in the increasing modernization and efficiency of industrial
production throughout the region. For more information on Prosoft

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures.
In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional?

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
