June 23, 2012

Pursuing Zero Tolerance for Errors.

Eiffel Software announced today the release of EiffelStudio 7.1, the latest version of its Integrated Development Environment (IDE). EiffelStudio is a comprehensive suite of tools that enables programmers to produce correct, reliable, and maintainable software systems while keeping control of the development process.

Today you still hear about software bugs that have huge negative consequences such as the one that kept Nasdaq at a standstill during the Facebook IPO or the flaw in a routine upgrade that knocked the Bank of Scotland’s entire system off-kilter on June 25th. All this should not happen and it is not a fatality. The use of good methodology and tools can protect developers and the companies that employ them from these malicious threats.

“Making sure that with EiffelStudio developers have all the tools and features they need to produce bug-free applications has been the company’s goal for over a quarter of a century,” says Emmanuel Stapf, Head of Engineering. “Our customers have praised us for this advantage and we are pleased to see that the market is evolving in that direction. With EiffelStudio 7.1 and the improvements we have made, our customers can produce bug free applications and they can produce them quickly. There is no performance penalty for producing quality software.”

“We are proud to provide the software community with a way to produce bug-free applications easily and efficiently and to never have had a customer making the headline of the press for an Eiffel related bug in their software since the company started in 1985,” says Greg Soulages, Head of Global Sales.
