According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the annual cost of poor software quality in the U.S. is $60 billion. As a result, 80 percent of software development budgets are dedicated to fixing defects found late in the development cycle – e.g., in the QA phase. A defect found in QA is traditionally 10X the cost to fix than if it had been found earlier in the cycle. What’s more, defects found post-release are 30X the cost of finding and fixing them while the code is being written, in the implementation phase.

Time-to-market pressures are spawning new business requirements, as companies are driven to produce products in tighter timeframes and with lower budgets, yet with flawless functionality. Many are turning to development testing to complement traditional software testing methods, such as quality assurance (QA) testing and security audits – testing software code as it is written, to reduce development risks, time and costs.

In this slideshow, Dennis Chu, senior product manager for Coverity, outlines the 10 commandments of development testing.
