For an improved product, we'd like to see integration with Agile DevOps and Agile methodologies. Some capability of the tool that allows us to trigger the status analysis report based on actions like regular builds. We would like to have better integration with Microsoft Agile DevOps tools. This would save us a lot of time. In addition, we also sometimes experience issues with false-positive detections - phantom issues.

For the previous version, we realized it wasn't possible to have a quick dashboard for the number of violations. A feature like business intelligence or code coverage could be included.

Not much as of now. But I am feeling Klocwork should support more number of languages like other static code analyzers do. Right now Klocwork has supportability available only to C, C++, Java, and C#.

There are many things that can be improved. The code used between projects is one of the very painful points in Klocwork. So if you are using a code and the product is shared between projects, you have to analyze the different projects just to comment if it is good or to justify it in the different projects. And the solutions they provide for the issues, are not fully correct. So this is the main issue is using the code between projects.

When an upgrade is carried out it must be done on both the server and client side, which can make it a bit hectic for all projects to be configured on the private server. Every update that we receive requires of us a lengthy and involved process.

The project reporting status dashboard should also be addressed. As I am on the compliance team, I must open every project to resolve all issues.  The solution does not provide consolidated views. Meanwhile, Kuiwan has a very good feature on its dashboard.

Moreover, Klocwork makes a limited number of languages available to the user, only four. In addition, a good consolidated dashboard, in respect of compliance, would be nice to see.

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. Without building the source code we have to get the static code and the source code. That's what we are looking into. It would be better if they could provide a solution for this issue, regarding code building, when compiling the report.

I would like to see a dashboard added to provide a clear look and feel. The dashboard would then supplement the users to enable them to get a quick view of the content, as long is it is clear. A presentational dashboard would be good.
