Agreement extends Klocwork’s leadership in the telecommunications market with Germany’s largest manufacturer of network and wireless devices
BURLINGTON, Mass. — Aug 11, 2008 — Klocwork Inc., the proven leader in automated source code analysis for improving software security and quality, today announced that AVM has selected Klocwork Insight to be used in the development of the software that controls its range of award-winning routers and wireless devices. With Klocwork, AVM can detect software defects earlier in the development process to reduce costs and ensure the reliability and overall quality of its products.
With products available in 60 countries worldwide, AVM places a heavy emphasis on the quality of the devices they manufacture. As a company committed to innovation, AVM’s dedicated team of approximately 200 developers is constantly improving the software for their existing product ranges, as well as developing new software to meet the demands of new and increasingly complex technology. Looking for a test solution to help them meet their software quality requirements and accelerate their software development process, AVM first contacted Emenda Software, Klocwork’s resale partner in Germany, for an evaluation of the static source code analysis tool. After a successful integration into their build environment, AVM initially deployed K7 and based on its initial deployment success, has since expanded its deployment to another 50 developers for Klocwork Insight.
“Here at AVM we are constantly developing the software for the hardware we manufacture,” said AVM’s Head of Core Development, Hans-Juergen Ortmann. “We are committed to quality and Klocwork allows us to ensure that the code we develop is bug-free before it is checked in. The desktop function is very helpful in this respect. As wireless and network technology becomes increasingly complex, Klocwork also helps us speed up the time it takes to develop new software to meet our customers’ demands.”
‘We are seeing increased customer demand to deploy Klocwork at the developer desktop to allow developers to check-in high quality, bug-free code,” said Mike Laginski, Klocwork’s chief executive officer. “We completely understand AVM’s commitment to quality and innovation and are pleased to support them as they deploy Klocwork Insight to their developers’ desktops.”
Klocwork Insight is a leading static source code analysis tool for C, C++ and Java, and the only solution with a Connected Desktop Analysis capability that enables developers to run the analysis with full system context right at their desktop, before they check-in their code. Solutions are available in two versions: Klocwork Insight for C/C++ and Java and Klocwork Insight for Java.
Founded in 1986 in Berlin, AVM is one of the top two manufacturers of ADSL devices in Europe. With over 50 percent of the market share, it is the leading manufacturer in Germany, Europe’s largest market. AVM has 460 employees and generated a turnover of €280 million in 2007 fiscal year.
