Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the Incremental analysis."
  • "I believe it should support more languages, such as Python and JavaScript."

What is our primary use case?

Klocwork is part of the DevOps process. It is scaling the code on every request.

How has it helped my organization?

It saves a lot of time when it comes to finding defects, it's basically inputted in every access we do.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Incremental analysis.

What needs improvement?

I believe it should support more languages, such as Python and JavaScript.

I would like to see dynamic analysis as well.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Klocwork for seven years.

We are using version 2021.2.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Klocwork is very stable and very mature.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very scalable.

In our organization, we have 50 users.

It is used on a daily basis. It's one of the most important tools that every developer has.

How are customer service and support?

The support is good. We have no problems with the support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Coverity in the past, but they shifted their focus, and we switched to Klocwork.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

It is simple to set up and can be done by any developer.

The initial deployment took a couple of days.

We have one person, working half-time to maintain this solution. That is all that is needed.

What about the implementation team?

I didn't require any assistance because I installed it myself.

What was our ROI?

We have seen a return on investment. Each developer invests at least half an hour a day less on defects. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing fees are paid annually, but they also have a perpetual license.

There are no additional costs.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend, first creating a baseline of their source code with all of the issues, and then handling the new issues on a daily basis while gradually resolving the old ones.

I would rate Klocwork a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
