Business impact of low code quality

Code Quality is a business concern

The importance of code quality is well established in software development. Yet, we have not until now been able to prove that in terms of numbers. CodeScene's groundbreaking study reveals the business impact of low quality code.

Code Red: The business impact of low code quality

CodeScene has together with academic partners published a large-scale study on how code quality impacts software companies in terms of time-to-market and product experience. The study aims to elevate code quality to the business level by putting numbers on the impact of unhealthy code. The study concludes that there is a dramatic impact of code quality regarding both time-to-market and the quality of the product.

The importance of a healthy codebase is undervalued at the business level

This study, which is accepted at The International Conference on Technical Debt 2022 is of high importance and has brought to light new evidence on the impact of unhealthy code bases. 

 

•  Efficient software development is a competitive advantage, enabling companies to maintain a short time-to-market with a mature product experience.

 

•  Research shows that 23-42% of developer’s time is wasted due to technical debt and bad code.

 

•  Code quality is not visible to non-tech stakeholders and possible gains in code quality are hard to translate into business value.

 

•  High quality code has 15 times fewer bugs, 2 times the development speed and 9 times lower uncertainty in completion time.

 

•  Our research included 39 commercial codebases, 40.000 software modules and 14 programming languages, from various industries and domains. All metrics were automated via CodeScene.
