First public demo of management information system

ESC UK saw the first public demonstration of PRQA / The Programming Research Group's Management Information System (MIS) – a product it says will 'change the landscape for software code quality measurement'.

MIS' code quality management operates in conjunction with PRQA's QA.C and QA.C++ analysis tools. It captures diagnostics and metrics from each version of a software project and coupling the code entities to the source Version Control System. It is delivered through a regular web browser, the system has been designed to provide functionality to profile quality data over time and create new compound metrics.

MIS has been undergoing trials for the past three months in industries such as military, aerospace, medical design and automotive markets and will have its first full product release in November.

Chief technical officer at PRQA, Fergus Bolger, pictured, said at ESC UK: "The system allows developers to roll their development back to a previous code version to access critical bugs or compliance issues. They can also perform instant baseline analysis between code versions, viewing only the newly exposed diagnostics."
