According to Andreas Gerstinger, Software Quality and Engineer, who drove the evaluation and introduction of Coverity into the organization, ”We had used other analysis tools in the past but they did not go as deep as Coverity – they only provided metrics such as complexity measurement – but did not go as far as finding faults and pinpointing where they reside in the code. Developers didn’t want a tool that only showed them abstract metrics, but would instead show them exactly where they made a coding error.”
