Business description: Reasoning provides companies with a fast and cost-effective means to identify, locate, and fix code defects and security vulnerabilities early in the development process—before they become problems. Our automated software inspection services enable software development organizations to dramatically reduce the time, effort, and cost it takes to produce secure, high quality Java, C, and C++ code. Our software reliability and maintainability inspection services analyze Java, C, and C++ source code, and detect and diagnose defects well before they become discernible problems. Then, we steer development teams to the exact location for remedy and resolution. Our inspection database, developed over hundreds of projects, gives us a unique ability to benchmark and track software quality across projects, companies, and industries. Reasoning has been an essential part of the software development efforts on a number of high-visibility software projects, including operating systems, telecommunications and networking infrastructure, government projects, aviation/airline applications, and more.
