A new version of Parasoft’s Concerto released at Gartner AADI Summit 2010 includes a policy layer. This does not cover SOA policy but instead relates to SDLC policy. Parasoft offers a Policy Center that can enforce peer code reviews, implement pattern-based static analysis and support flow-based static analysis. Associated tasks can be linked to measurements adhering to standards such as PCI-DSS or HIPAA, or to custom in-house rules. “With Concerto, we have integrated testing into the development process,” said Wayne Ariola, VP of Strategy, Parasoft. “It is no longer ad hoc usage.” Such software tools help development teams looking to marry agile processes to SOA, WOA and other application types. ” Making agile methods work in a sustainable fashion requires getting everyone on the same page working from the same playbook, said Thomas Murphy research director, Gartner, in a prepared statement. This requires building common vocabularies and tools that enable collaboration and a quality-oriented development process, he continued.
