When you need software On Time and Under Budget
Programmer productivity in Ada is at least as high as
other OOP languages such as C++. You get more Function Points
per Dollar, less Re-Testing, Higher Reusability.
Robust, Industrial-strength Compilers are cheap (some are
Copyleft Free) and you don't need a million expensive tools
for bounds checking - the compiler does that for you
And that means a better bottom line.
