Coverity Review

Stable, scalable, and provides reports about a lot of potential defects

What is our primary use case?

We use it in our company during product development.

What is most valuable?

It provides reports about a lot of potential defects.

What needs improvement?

Its price can be improved. Price is always an issue with Synopsys.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Coverity for about three or four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has good stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Its scalability is good. 

How are customer service and technical support?

They are professional and very responsible. They have a local FAE.

How was the initial setup?

It is not straightforward, but it is also not too complex. The learning curve needed for installing Coverity is okay.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution if you can afford it. If you have enough budget, it is one of the best solutions right now. There may be other cheaper solutions, but you get what you pay for.

We have been using Coverity for several years. We would not have continued using it if it was not a good solution. We always have some minor questions or improvements for them, and they always give us a relatively fast response.

I would rate Coverity a nine out of ten. Only its price should be improved.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
