As the rising technical debt slowed down their ability to deliver product innovations, Carterra framed a no-compromise statement of intent that progressively led them to sustainable software delivery. With the help of CodeScene, they managed to improve their code health by approximately 25% and reduce unplanned work by 82% over 12 months.

“CodeScene is the recommended software for two topics, visualization and metrics. CodeScene provides several visualization options that allow the students to have a better overview of the analyzed software. The visualizations also help the students identify possible candidates for refactoring, especially the Technical Debt tab.”
“As a CIO I’m mainly interested in getting an ”unbiased opinion” on how we are doing as an development organization, and an ability to identify potential risks lying ahead. In essence our developers have increased their contribution in the areas of panning and reporting, in addition to coding, after we implemented CodeScene. We set up an internal KPI saying that regardless of the pressure to deliver new features we should not let our code quality drop under 9 out of 10 to avoid building a technical backlog.”
Interview with Peter Caron, SVP Global Engineering at HelloFresh and member of Advisory Board CodeScene
"I do not find technical debt to be a problem in and of itself. However, technical risk is a problem. In the context of CodeScene, the software helps me to identify technical risks while prioritizing in what order actions are needed to mitigate it. Oftentimes technical debt and technical risks are correlating.
For example, we conducted a detailed analysis of our bugs and tried to trace them back to code. What we found was that there was a direct correlation between different code bugs and risks in 2019 and have used this functionality since then with great results."
Interview with Markus Borg, AI Researcher
“When both supervisors and students rest their eyes on the same visualizations, it is easier to guide discussions around the source code repository. I find that the importance of source code visualization in teaching has been amplified during all the screen-sharing sessions we’ve had throughout the pandemic.“
The new identity revolves around our vision to “give code an intelligent voice” and reflects our forward-looking culture. The new logo reinforces the idea of artificial intelligence and CodeScene being there as an extra team member, guiding you toward better software and teams.
The new website presents relevant content in a clean, minimalistic and modern way with an aim to give visitors easy access to solutions and information.
We are proud to share this new identity with our community and hope that it will inspire all of us to write better code, build happier teams and future proof our software.
