LDRA Partners with Jama Software to Close the Verification Workflow Gap for Embedded Systems

LDRA, software quality experts in the areas of functional safety, security, and standards compliance, has partnered with Jama Software to deliver a test validation and verification lifecycle solution for safety- and security-critical applications in the embedded software market. The LDRA tool suite integrates with Jama Connect enabling developers to bidirectionally trace the relationships between the various stages of application development. Such transparency across the development lifecycle ensures faster development, improved code quality, and stronger risk mitigation.

For applications to be safe and secure, development teams must follow strict processes that ensure all aspects of development are fully traced, tested, and documented and comply with industry safety and security standards such as DO-178B/C for aerospace, ISO 26262 for automotive, IEC 61508 for industrial controls, and IEC 62304 for medical devices. To accomplish this, developers must map application requirements to software written, and that code must be tested to ensure that it does what it is expected to do, that all existing code maps to a given requirement, and that all interrelationships are bidirectionally traceable.

By integrating the LDRA tool suite with Jama Connect, LDRA closes the software verification gap by showing the relationships among application requirements, code, software verification, and documentation. LDRA automates software analysis and application verification to ensure software quality, while Jama Software provides a product development platform with broader visibility into product definition and design, including build and test phases. The Jama Connect management framework exposes the relationships and dependencies among projects, teams, activities, and results. Developers can quickly trace requirements, source code, test cases, and test execution results to gain insight into testing progress, code quality, stability of the system, and validation on the host and target platforms.

Thanks to this integration, developers can analyze the application by exporting Jama Connect project artifacts or item types into LDRA’s TBmanager to identify any feedback loops on software design, certification needs, testing, or code defects. The item types are typically Jama Connect multilevel requirements and test cases, which can be kept synchronized no matter which development lifecycle methodology has been adopted, enabling teams to work with the most current records. Also, progress and evidence reports can be automatically generated at any time. This comprehensive integration greatly increases efficiency in software testing and reduces costs of producing high-quality software including software that must go through qualification or certification.

“LDRA and Jama Software have been focused on giving developers the tools they need to build safe and secure systems for many years,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director, LDRA. “Our visibility into code quality and compliance coupled with Jama’s focus on requirements and process enables us to help developers work smarter and faster as they create safe and secure code. Companies using our combined solution can verify regulatory compliance while reducing the cost of testing—no small feat as compliance costs spiral for many.”

“Integrating with the LDRA tool suite just made sense given our complementary focus,” said Scott Rogers, VP Business Development, Jama Software. “Software complexity, particularly in the automotive industry, has created unprecedented application risks for OEMs and their suppliers. Partnering with LDRA ensures that we can provide our clients with an end-to-end safety and security compliance solution that will reduce development time, improve software quality, and mitigate risk.”

Intel is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California, in the Silicon Valley. It is the world's second largest and second highest valued semiconductor chip maker based on revenue after being overtaken by Samsung, and is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers (PCs). Intel supplies processors for computer system manufacturers such as Apple, Lenovo, HP, and Dell. Intel also manufactu...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.
