DTP is a system that collects and analyzes data in order to monitor and measure the application of quality practices, such as static analysis or unit testing. It enables you to focus on the impact of changed code and demonstrate full compliance traceability.

Connecting to DTP allows you to send local analysis findings to a centralized database. You can send the following information:

  • Static Analysis and Metrics results (including suppression details)
  • Unit Testing results (including traceability information)
  • Line Coverage
