Rogue Wave Software and Hitex partner to deliver developer tools
Relationship focuses on embedded software to eliminate defects at the developerâ€™s desktop
Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components, announces a new partnership with Hitex Germany. With this expanded distribution channel, developers who create embedded software will have access to Rogue Wave tools, allowing them to build secure, quality code.
Based in Karlsruhe, Germany, Hitex supports customers with expert consulting in all phases of a development project, from concept to system realization. Hitex will primarily provide customers with Klocwork, the Rogue Wave static code analysis tool.
“With the increase in embedded development, and the rapid drive to get powerful, smart, and connected devices to the market at rapid rates, developers need to create applications that are secure,” says Frank Hoschar, managing director at Hitex. “Coding issues are to blame for most security vulnerabilities, and most coding errors happen at the developer's desktop, so a reliable, desktop static code analysis tool is a top priority.”
Rogue Wave continues to build a strong network of partners worldwide in order to ensure their solutions can be accessed by developers virtually anywhere. As part of the company's commitment to the developer community in Europe, it welcomes Andy Knapp as vice president, EMEA sales, based in the Rogue Wave U.K. office. Joining Rogue Wave from Cryptzone and Black Duck Software, Andy will lead sales teams covering Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and will drive partner engagement. Andy is eager to embrace the new partnership with Hitex. “Security issues in embedded devices can have an enormous impact on a company's success,” he says. “By partnering with Hitex we're making it easier for companies in Europe to protect themselves from quality and security risks.”
