Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) Earns VDC Research Embeddy Award

Parasoft announced today that the Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) — a component of Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP) — has been honored with the VDC Research Embeddy award. Parasoft PIE analyzes data from disparate systems and tools in the embedded software development infrastructure and identifies risks and opportunities for improvement based on the organization’s priorities.

VDC’s Embeddy is awarded for the most cutting-edge product or service for embedded software developers and system engineers and is intended to highlight important advances in the embedded industry. “VDC chose Parasoft’s Process Intelligence Engine for the Embeddy award because it puts together pieces of software development information in an innovative way,” remarked Steve Hoffenberg, VDC Research’s Director of M2M Embedded Software & Tools. “PIE should help many software organizations actually become more organized.”

Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP) eliminates the business risk of faulty software by consistently applying software quality practices throughout the SDLC. It enables software quality efforts to evolve from automated to continuous — delivering a platform for defect prevention and the uniform measurement of risk across teams.

Using Parasoft DTP, teams can collect millions of observations throughout the SDLC and apply advanced analysis techniques to identify business risks and reduce the costs associated with software failures. The award-winning Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) seeks out patterns buried in data across disparate systems and delivers an actionable list of findings that are prioritized according to the organization’s policies. For example, by correlating static analysis observations with unit test observations, PIE can identify application components that present the most significant risk of failure. With Parasoft’s open architecture enabling the integration of any type of data point, the possibilities are endless.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
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 ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
