Good error detection, speedy, shows precise logs and results, and has a user-friendly GUI
Pros and Cons
  • "What I like best about CodeSonar is that it has fantastic speed, analysis and configuration times. Its detection of all runtime errors is also very good, though there were times it missed a few. The configuration of logs by CodeSonar is also very fantastic which I've not seen anywhere else. I also like the GUI interface of CodeSonar because it's very user friendly and the tool also shows very precise logs and results."
  • "In terms of areas for improvement, the use case for CodeSonar was good, but compared to other tools, it seems CodeSonar isn't a sound static analysis tool, and this is a major con I've seen from it. Right now, in the market, people prefer sound static analysis tools, so I would have preferred if CodeSonar was developed into a sound static analysis tool formally, in terms of its algorithms, so then you can see it extensively used in the market because at the moment, here in India, only fifty to sixty customers use CodeSonar. If the product is developed into a sound static analysis tool, it could compete with Polyspace, and from its current fifty customers, that number could go up to a hundred."

What is our primary use case?

A few of our customers are in the defense industry in India and they're using CodeSonar. In the company, we are from the support team, and in particular, we are application engineers, so if customers are facing technical issues with CodeSonar, we go to their labs and guide them on how to use the product, etc.

What is most valuable?

What I like best about CodeSonar is that it has fantastic speed, analysis and configuration times. Its detection of all runtime errors is also very good, though there were times it missed a few. The configuration of logs by CodeSonar is also very fantastic which I've not seen anywhere else.

I also like the GUI interface of CodeSonar because it's very user friendly and the tool also shows very precise logs and results.

What needs improvement?

In terms of areas for improvement, the use case for CodeSonar was good, but compared to other tools, it seems CodeSonar isn't a sound static analysis tool, and this is a major con I've seen from it.

Right now, in the market, people prefer sound static analysis tools, so I would have preferred if CodeSonar was developed into a sound static analysis tool formally, in terms of its algorithms, so then you can see it extensively used in the market because at the moment, here in India, only fifty to sixty customers use CodeSonar. If the product is developed into a sound static analysis tool, it could compete with Polyspace, and from its current fifty customers, that number could go up to a hundred.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using CodeSonar for three months now, but because I'm very familiar with similar static code analysis tools such as Polyspace, I haven't faced any difficulties when using CodeSonar.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

CodeSonar is a stable tool.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I found CodeSonar scalable. Everything was fantastic about the tool.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support for CodeSonar was fantastic. I'm giving support a five out of five rating.

How was the initial setup?

I've not seen how CodeSonar was set up because we just gave three to four demos to customers who have been very happy with the demos and have seen all capabilities of the tool, and those customers are planning to use CodeSonar for internal projects.

What about the implementation team?

Deployment for CodeSonar was completed within fifteen to twenty minutes and was done by the in-house team.

What was our ROI?

I've seen ROI from CodeSonar.

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

I don't have knowledge on the licensing costs for CodeSonar because that part is handled by the sales team. I'm in the technical team.

What other advice do I have?

My company is a distributor of CodeSonar from GrammaTech. In the last two months, my company officially signed with GrammaTech, so now my company is a partner of CodeSonar. I'm looking into CodeSonar and comparing it with different variants available in the market such as Polyspace, Coverity, and SonarQube, but my team is very much interested in pitching CodeSonar to the market. My team needs to show the strength, capability, feasibility, and integrity of the tool, and how it can be very helpful for the security and defense of businesses.

I had the chance to try CodeSonar within the last twelve months, and I'm using its latest version.

Pitching the tool to customers was very easy probably because those were corporate and government customers who understand the pitches, plus CodeSonar comes with a manual and it's one of the best things about the tool.

My company currently has fifty or so customers using CodeSonar, and there's a plan to increase its usage in the future.

I would rate CodeSonar ten out of ten, particularly because of the support it provides.
