Coverity Review

It has the lowest false positives with customizable triage options

What is our primary use case?

We did a comprehensive evaluation on a number of critical parameters in the environment that we are in. Other popular tools that we evaluated failed to meet our expectations.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Ease of development teams to adopt.
  • Faster scanning
  • Lowest false positives
  • No unnecessary bloating of a huge defect list.

These have helped us to focus on the things which need attention.

What is most valuable?

  • Lowest false positive rate
  • Faster scanning time
  • Inline context-sensitive help and other supportive artifacts which help developers.
  • Customizable triage options
  • Integrations with CI/CD tools, etc.

What needs improvement?

  • Reporting engine needs to be more robust.
  • Custom reporting is a must have.
  • Perhaps, the availability of connectors to popular open source BI tools, such as BIRT, JasperReports, or Pentaho may add value.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.
