Techniques and Tools for Software Analysis

Understanding how software development can be optimized through the use of software analysis tools and techniques beyond standard debuggers—including advanced debug techniques, performance tools and code coverage functionality—can ensure higher system quality.

Software analysis tools and techniques can help tackle the costly, hard-to-find errors that frustrate and delay development, testing and deployment. They help to identify issues before they cause problems downstream or for the customer. This is important because the later in the development process an error is found, the more it costs to fix. Finding a bug after a product is deployed to the field can be costly in revenue, and can damage customer goodwill as well as corporate reputation in the industry.

This paper examines how software analysis tools may affect each stage of the development cycle so that developers have the information they need to evaluate their analysis options.
