Did you happen to land on this page because your license was coming to the end or had already ended? Let us tell you why you should renew your license and how to do it.
First, we hope that you got benefit from purchasing our license for your project. We are sure that your team was running the analyzer not just occasionally, but, as we recommend, was using it regularly, performing the full code analysis overnight and fixing found errors in the mornings. Maybe, you even went the whole nine yards in the implementation of static analysis methodology and convinced all programmers to use the analyzer locally as well, in the incremental analysis mode. After all, this way developers spend less time on context switching, and errors get fixed almost effortlessly. If incremental analysis is not used in your team yet or it is used not by everyone, the license renewal is a good reason to think about it.
We'd like to consistently earn money and we don't want to hide this from you :). We are sure that you will consider this with understanding. The fact of the matter is that over 50% of our clients renew their licenses annually. While as for the rest, the argument "your product is bad" is not the first place among the reasons for the refusal. A project was frozen or sold to another company with other development processes, someone changed the technology and the language of development, and someone even might have closed the company. It is clear that there are those for whom the tool didn't work out. You cannot please everyone, this is normal.
