Title: The System Analysis Toolkit
The Software Improvement Group has been developing the System Analysis
Toolkit (SAT) over the last few months. This system aims at analysing
large software systems, written in a large variety of languages. Since
analyses often need to be performed in a short period of time, the
system needs to be fast: both in performance, and in changeability.
The SAT is used both for our Software Risk Assessments and for Software
Portfolio Monitoring services (see www.software-improvers.com for more
details). It's main purpose is to serve as a consolidated user
interface through which all software analysis related tools at the
Software Improvement Group can be activated, and the results for all
analysis stored, and visualised.
It is used to chain various analyses together, and to aggregate the
results of analyses on various parts of a system, that can be written
in different languages.
In this talk I will discuss the design of the SAT, and give a
demonstration of its various advantages (and shortcomings :-).
We are willing to make the SAT freely available for the research
community. I would like to discuss your potential interest for such a
