SAN FRANCISCO, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, Inc., the leader in development testing, today announced that Eagle Investment Systems LLC (Eagle), a leading provider of financial services technology and a subsidiary of BNY Mellon, is working with Coverity to leverage development testing in its software development lifecycle, across both internal teams and third party software suppliers.

Eagle's mission is to help its clients grow their assets efficiently. Many of the world's leading, global financial services institutions rely on Eagle's innovative data management, investment accounting and performance measurement solutions to make smarter investment decisions. With Coverity development testing solutions, Eagle can more easily discover and repair critical quality and security issues in its code base earlier in the development process, which helps Eagle to deliver resilient, secure software to its customers, more efficiently and quickly.

"The quality and security of our software is of paramount importance to our customers–they rely on us every day to run and manage their businesses," said Marc Firenze, chief technology officer for Eagle. "Most instances of our software delivery are through our secure private cloud, and we do not tolerate quality or security issues in our solutions. Coverity is an important part of our software development lifecycle and is strategic in helping us continually enhance our process."

Coverity provides Eagle with actionable metrics on code quality, code security and technical debt, so development knows where its potential risk areas are and can focus resources accordingly. Eagle is also able to enforce a consistent software quality and security benchmark to measure internal teams and third party suppliers against, providing Eagle with visibility to help identify and resolve small issues before they turn into business problems.

Another critical element to Eagle's successful adoption of development testing is the fact that its developers have embraced Coverity. "Putting Coverity in the hands of developers means we can address issues earlier in our development cycle," said Steve Taylor, Head of Technology and Architecture for Eagle. "We've introduced Coverity into our new hire onboarding process to help developers better understand our code quicker. Coverity helps our developers advance their coding skills."

"Eagle is a great example of how development testing continues to help the financial services industry ensure software quality and security under rapid time-to-market and competitive pressures," said Jennifer Johnson, chief marketing officer for Coverity. "We commend Eagle for its innovation and are honored that Coverity has played a role in Eagle's software development testing and business success."
