LDRA, the leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, announced today that it has chosen EDAway as a distributor in Italy. Backed by years of experience integrating technologies needed by the safety- and security-critical markets, EDAway will provide local-language sales, support, and service for the LDRA tool suite.

As suppliers face an increasing need to provide safety- and security-compliant compliance, these companies have sought out automated software testing and verification tools. Such tools help them to avoid the prohibitive costs and schedule overruns endemic in a manual compliance process. With many clients focused on building such complex systems, EDAway will be ideally positioned for helping them achieve certification more easily as the LDRA tool suite helps companies manage the growing volume and complexity of code in the safety- and security-critical markets and to adhere to international regulatory guidelines.

“Most safety-critical systems, whether for automotive, avionics, high-speed rail, or medical, have ballooned to millions of lines of code, making it impossible to manage manually without excessive cost, schedule overruns, or loss of quality,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director, LDRA. “The LDRA tool suite automates the tracking, testing, verification, and documentation of system requirements, saving developers unprecedented time and cost while also reducing corporate risk.”

“Nearly all of our customers are involved in highly complex, safety-critical application development that requires a high level of service and support,” confirmed Antonio Marino, Technical Manager, EDAway. “The LDRA tool suite enables us to achieve end-to-end analysis and verification of the application. We can more quickly identify and correct problems at an earlier stage of development. Such efficiency is found only in best-of-class tools and has a direct impact on our customers’ schedules and bottom lines.”
