|Online betting group Betfair has announced an agreement with California’s Fortify Software for the use of its Source Code Analysis (SCA) product.|
The product is described by the Palo Alto-based software developer as a key tool in the development process that will enable Betfair.com to develop applications more quickly by automating the time-consuming manual processes that are associated with finding and fixing software bugs.
The deal will see Betfair.com deploy Fortify’s SCA to help locate and fix certain types of software bugs before formal testing starts, making the whole development lifecycle more efficient.
'Because we operate around the clock and our transactions are time-sensitive, software reliability is crucial to the success of our business,” said Matt Young, Engineering Partner Development Director for Betfair.com.
“Finding an automated tool to help us maintain our high standards of source code quality was very valuable. In particular, we wanted to minimise the additional work for our developers of reviewing an ever-growing code base.
'Fortify impressed us both as a company and with its SCA product. From the outset, they listened carefully to our requirements and shifted focus to address our specific needs, resulting in a partnership approach that has continued through into after-sales service.'
