Enables us to resolve violations but it needs integration with Agile DevOps and Agile methodologies

What is our primary use case?

I'm a product architect and belong to a classic management system team. We're a Klocwork customer. We have around 50-60 developers in the team and I'm involved in the utilization of the tool and I am familiar with its capability. We've just started using the latest version which is the first one that's compatible with .NET framework 4.7.2. The previous version was not fully compatible with Visual Studio 2017. In our case, the use is for static code analysis for each baseline in order to see what kind of violation we have. Parallel to that, we use the results and apply some refactoring in order… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "There is a central Klocwork server at our headquarter in France so we connect the client directly to the server on-premises remotely."
  • "We'd like to see integration with Agile DevOps and Agile methodologies."

What other advice do I have?

We use Klocwork in two different configurations, on-prem and cloud. Basically we can summarize on-premises. We connect the client directly to the server on-premises remotely. But for certain products and features, we also use a local server that is on-premise but with different configurations. In this case, the server is deployed with some rule set and configured in a certain manner locally with the second option of redirecting the connection directly to our headquarter. I would recommend the latest version. In the roadmap of the product, a lot of improvements have been made. We are currently…

It has saved a lot of time in developing a code through on the fly analysis mode

What is our primary use case?

Our main test case is to check for some of our internal standards which we usually do manually. But when we got Klocwork, it completely changed the scenario. We are writing a simple logic for checking our internal standards without much overhead. One more is on the fly analysis which is the most important feature which Klocwork provides I believe.

What other advice do I have?

Not much as of now.

It allows our team members to collaborate, but the codes between projects need to improve

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of Klocwork is for static project analysis and for getting ratios.

Pros and Cons

  • "One can increase the number of vendors, so the solution is scalable."
  • "I would like to see better codes between projects and a more user-friendly desktop in the next release."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be that they should determine their use case before buying the program. If they have many codes, I would not recommend it. If they have a separate project where not many codes are shared between projects, I will recommend it. I would like to see better codes between projects and a more user-friendly desktop in the next release. On a scale from one to 10, I rate this product a seven.

Good stability and tech support and the setup is straightforward

What is our primary use case?

We currently use Klocwork mainly for static code analysis.

Pros and Cons

    • "Now the only issue we have is that whenever we need to get the code we have to build it first. Then we can get the report."

    What other advice do I have?

    Klocwork is a good product, but keep in mind that before building the code you have to get a report. Then you use the code. If you don't need to get a report after building the source code then this is a good solution for you. I prefer this tool. I would rate Klocwork as eight out of ten.
