Electric Cloud® and Coverity® Announce Software Integrity Partnership

Companies to Help Joint Customers Accelerate Time to Market by Improving Software Integrity

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2009) - Coverity®, the software integrity company, and Electric Cloud®, the leading provider of software production management (SPM) solutions, today announced a partnership to help companies improve the integrity of their business-critical software. This partnership will help joint customers leverage the full benefits of the Coverity Integrity Center and the Electric Cloud solution to get the deep visibility required to ensure software integrity by identifying issues early then managing and accelerating the entire software production process.

The Coverity and Electric Cloud software integrity partnership is designed to help joint customers:

--  Decrease costs by identifying and fixing software defects and
    inefficiencies early in the software development lifecycle when they are
    most cost-effective to eliminate
--  Speed time to market by reducing the time it takes for developers to
    identify and fix software problems and accelerating the entire software
    build, test and deploy production process
--  Eliminate risk by ensuring that products do not ship with invalid
    components, security vulnerabilities, or quality defects that can cause
    costly recalls
    

"Coverity and Electric Cloud are teaming to help customers leverage best of class software analysis and production management to attack the full scope of their software integrity problems," said Dave Peterson, chief marketing officer at Coverity. "Using Coverity and Electric Cloud to optimize software is like fine tuning a race car for maximum performance and then dropping a turbo charger in it to blow away the competition. Coverity will continue to aggressively expand the software integrity ecosystem with partners like Electric Cloud to help customers tackle their toughest business integrity challenges."

"Continuous integration and testing uncovers defects early in the development process that would cost thousands of dollars to fix if discovered late in the development cycle," said Usman Muzaffar, VP of Product Management at Electric Cloud. "We have already had success along with Coverity delivering accurate and fast build and test cycles at large software development shops around the world. We are happy to be formalizing our joint solution and partnership."

With product integration available today, Coverity Integrity Center analysis can be started from within an ElectricCommander procedure, allowing customers who use ElectricCommander to automatically schedule software analysis from Coverity as a standard part of their build and test process. Customers using Electric Cloud and Coverity have accelerated software production cycles by as much as 4-to-6 times compared to previous software production rates without the combined solution.

Electric Cloud is the leading provider of Software Production Management (SPM) solutions. SPM addresses the software build-test-deploy lifecycle that follows creation of new code. The individual products in the Electric Cloud solution include: ElectricCommander®, an enterprise-class solution for automating and managing the entire build-test-deploy process; ElectricAccelerator®, the only software build accelerator to deliver accurate parallel builds and up to 20x faster throughput using patented dependency management technology; and ElectricInsight®, a diagnostic tool that mines ElectricAccelerator output to enable troubleshooting and performance improvement.

Coverity's flagship product offering, the Coverity Integrity Center, provides a full set of precision software analysis products in a single offer. This combination enables customers to identify and eliminate the root cause of problems during the design, code, build, and test phases of software development. Coverity's groundbreaking Build Analysis capability allows companies to recapture time and money lost to broken or brittle build systems during development. The first technology to automatically scan builds, this unique capability helps companies improve developer productivity, accelerate time to market and eliminate costly compliance risks.
