Techarenan names CodeScene as a Nordic rising star

Global upstart solving a 3 trillion dollar problem.

CodeScene identifies, visualizes and solves a host of software development problems. One of CodeScene’s most critical characteristics is its ability to reduce technical debt, which is currently a 3 trillion dollar problem globally.

Based on powerful algorithms and machine learning, CodeScene prioritizes technical debt and identifies code quality issues based on how organizations actually work with the code. It presents relevant, actionable information which can be directly turned into business value During 2020, two independent North American universities recognized CodeScene as the world’s leading platform for identifying technical debt. In the same year, CodeScene also successfully registered a patent in the US.

Since the start in 2015, CodeScene has rapidly developed an international client base, and currently has customers in 26 countries across many different industries. At present, CodeScene generates over 40% of its ARR (Annualized Recurring Revenue) from US customers, including several Fortune 100 firms. CodeScene has also experienced viral adoption at grassroots level within the developer community. This trend seems set to continue.


CodeScene – a company with a clear mission

Based on its international success so far, CodeScene’s strategy is clearly working. CodeScene is available to customers as a SaaS subscription, allowing them to instantly realize business value. The company plans to expand its sales and marketing footprint geographically, starting with the US after the summer. We will continue to scale up our marketing activities until our vision is known to all:

"Our vision is to give code an intelligent voice."
