This white paper describes a model that can help measure the benefit of static analysis tools and assess how to best to configure them.

Advanced static analysis tools, like CodeSonar, have become increasingly popular but quantifying their benefit is not straightforward. Whilst they can be easy to deploy in the development process, when defects are less costly to fix, it’s possible to generate a significant number of warnings that need to be investigated. Read the white paper to explore suggested parameters that can be used to model the value of such tools.
