CRAWLY, U.K., Oct. 10 -- CGG, one of the leading multinational integrated geosciences companies is ramping up its use of the Allinea DDT debugger within its globally distributed software development teams.
Software developed by teams distributed across four continents holds many secrets to the success of CGG – as significant R&D is constantly integrated into its software to maintain an advantage in the competitive oil and gas industry. CGG’s developers are using the powerful Allinea DDT debugging tool from Allinea Software to help them deliver by reducing the cost and impact of software bugs during development.
David Lecomber, CEO of Allinea Software, added, “We are delighted to see the rapid growth in usage of Allinea DDT as word of its benefits has spread within CGG. High performance computing is essential to the oil and gas industry today – and CGG’s capability in this field is renowned due to its investment in research and development. Enabling the software applications to scale and remain robust is a major development task - so we are glad to be playing a part in ensuring that this runs smoothly.”
In the wider software development industry, surveys frequently estimate debugging to represent 50% of software development time, so those time savings using Allinea DDT can have a major impact on what the team can deliver.
All in all, Catling says Allinea DDT makes programmers more productive because it pays attention to creating an intuitive and pleasant debugging environment.
