Big Data projects reduce defects to take on the IoT

Synopsys' Coverity Scan Project Spotlight report, which analysed the defects in big data projects detected by the Coverity Scan open source software scanning service, found that the average defect density rate for the projects decreased since the release of the 2013 Coverity Scan Report. In a sample of 16 big data projects that included Apache Hadoop, HBase and Cassandra, the data showed Synopsys' Coverity business group attributed the defect density rate drop to the critical role big data open source projects play in the IoT.
