Training for software verification using Logiscope

Description

This standard training course introduces the key concepts of software quality evaluation techniques supported by the IBM®Rational®Logiscope Toolset and their implementation through a series of practical exercises mainly based on source code developed by trainees.

More than a simple introduction to a new tool, this training session provides the trainees with a normative and methodological framework for software product evaluation. It clearly locates the scope and benefits of Logiscope, regarding source code verification in the various software life-cycle processes.
