Sony Network Communications Inc. is establishing a new company, Rocro Inc., and will begin offering a public beta version of Rocro services for software development beginning. Rocro is a type of SaaS (software as a service) for software development, which works with the GitHub.com and Bitbucket.org  repositories for automatic code review, API document generation and load testing. Rocro will support DevOps efforts aimed at the speedy development and release of applications while carrying out continuous improvement based on changing market needs. As mobile and cloud services continue to expand and all aspects of life become increasingly networked through IoT devices, software is now more important than ever. High value-added software is increasingly sought after as a source of differentiation, and development cycles are becoming larger in scope and complexity. However, in large-scale software development, developers often become bogged down in secondary tasks such as tool maintenance, and find themselves unable to devote sufficient time and energy to the essential task of development work itself. The development community is always seeking innovations to development environments that will reduce such inefficiencies and allow software developers to focus on their primary work while accelerating the pace of development cycles as a whole. Rocro aims to solve these challenges. The company help developers achieve constant workflow efficiency by providing cloud services for automatic code review and correction, automatic API document generation and hosting, and automatic load testing. Rocro Inc. helps software developers around the world focus on their essential tasks through an array of services that contribute to work automation, simplification, and parallelization.
