Parasoft rolls out Parasoft Concerto, an application lifecycle management solution that delivers end-to-end control for the software development lifecycle.

Parasoft, a provider of tools for automating the software quality and development process, has announced the release of Parasoft Concerto, which delivers end-to-end control for the software development lifecycle.

Parasoft Concerto complements an enterprise's existing technical infrastructure, connecting distributed components such as requirements management, defect tracking and source control management, claimed company officials. The system also enables managers to establish their working expectations via a policy. Policies are monitored via an unobtrusive, invisible infrastructure that interacts with users only when policies are not being followed as expected.

"Over the years, Parasoft explored many different tools and technologies that held promise for improving code, application or project quality," said Adam Kolawa, CEO of Parasoft. "Parasoft's research and development not only explored these options from an internal productivity perspective, but also from the business value perspective-given our history of selling development organizations tools that assist in preventing software defects. I feel that Parasoft Concerto is an optimal combination of tools, processes and infrastructure that can increase development productivity by orders of magnitude."

Parasoft Concerto is an ALM (application lifecycle management) solution that provides a comprehensive and objective view of SDLC (software development lifecycle) tasks as well as application quality and project risks. It helps organizations set expectations, govern workflow, manage tasks, achieve quality and monitor compliance.

The Parasoft Concerto Report Center helps software development managers verify whether a project is on budget, validate that the required quality is achieved based on the policies and determine when additional resources are needed.
