How has it helped my organization?

The solution helped us to improve the code quality of our organization.

What other advice do I have?

We've been using the private cloud deployment model. If you need a huge impact, a business impact, then I think I would recommend HP Fortify. However, if a user is looking for a small scale application with less business impact, I would go with a free solution. I would rate the solution ten out of ten. Aside from the cost, the application is pretty good.
