From 50,000 feet, all static analysis tools look the same. So when you decide to add static analysis to your workflow, how do you choose a tool fits your needs and can grow with your organization? In this webinar, we’ll dig deep into the ins and out of modern static analysis tools and the selection process. First, we’ll take a look at what common features all modern tools should have, and then dive into additional features that can make tools suit your unique needs. We’ll cover capabilities such as support for necessary compliance standards, security, types of analysis, scalability within your organization, reporting & analytics, checker customization, and more.
We’ll also discuss the often-overlooked intangibles that can make or break your static analysis initiative. Does the tool come with support? Is it “static” itself or continually growing and evolving? Does the vendor work with you and seem to care about you? Will the tool fit into your SDLC and development culture? When and where is it best to use OSS, and when do you need commercial tools? We’ll outline a framework you can use when evaluating static analysis tools that moves beyond simple bakeoffs.
