OverOps integrates with SonarQube

OverOps announced integration with SonarQube to enhance pre-production quality gates and to support shift-left initiatives.

The new plugin allows mutual customers to leverage combined static and runtime analysis to detect code issues before they get into production. 

“In today’s software delivery landscape, quality and development velocity are frequently at odds, and the stakes for errors in production have never been higher,” said Krish Subramanian, the chief analyst at Rishidot Research. “Static and dynamic analysis are both essential to an effective shift left strategy and to preventing major outages. The combination of products like OverOps and SonarQube in a CI/CD environment is a powerful way to ensure both quality and speed simultaneously.”
