Use case

Improve the Code Health of your Codebase

CodeScene analyzes your existing code and helps you set code health improvement goals. Start with an initial analysis, get actionable and prioritizes insights and track progress toward your goals.

THE PROBLEM

Code quality issues cost time, money, and missed deadlines. It’s crucial to know when you can move forward and implement new features, and when you should take a step back to assess and make necessary improvements in your code.

THE SOLUTION

CodeScene implemented a code health metric for all major programming languages and many more. By visualizing code health in an accessible way, it supports communication between development teams and technical leaders.

Benefits of this feature

Instant feedback

When integrated with pull requests, CodeScene acts as a quality gate during development. If a hotspot declines in health, CodeScene detects it and informs users. Developers get a detailed explanation of issues affecting code health as well as recommendations to inform their next steps.

Delivery risks

Code Quality Protection

Set your team’s code quality standards. Plan refactorings to bring old code in line with your standards and make sure all future code meets your quality goals. CodeScene detects and notifies you if planned goals are violated or if code health for any hotspot has declined.

Quality Gates pass, meaning no Code health decline

 

CodeScene allows you to go beyond absolute numbers and measure code health trends of hotspots. This kind of behavioral code analysis acts as a visualization of the evolution of a system, not as a static snapshot of a point in time.

All checks
  • Use trend measures as targets and goals
  • Get important feedback for the organization and developers
  • Find out whether the code is evolving in the desired direction
  • Learn whether development hotspots are getting better or worse

Quality Gates triggered, meaning some Code Declines in Health

 

No matter what, we never want to see a decline in code health. CodeScene’s pull request integration allows you to detect code quality issues via automated code reviews. Real-time data on the effects of development will help your decision-making process.

Some checks
  • Get automated code reviews
  • Automated integration with all major Git hosting platforms
  • Support for build pipelines like Jenkins
  • Use open REST API for custom integrations

More ways to use CodeScene

Identify, Prioritize and Manage Technical Debt

 

A codebase under active development is a moving target that’s going to change over time, which makes it difficult to manage technical debt. CodeScene lets you identify, prioritize and manage technical debt by giving you relevant and actionable information that you can turn into business value.

Improve Team Efficiency

 

Go beyond the code and consider the organization and people aspect of the system. With CodeScene, you can gain insight into the information invisible in the source code itself, such as coordination, communication and motivation. Use this information to address coordination needs and bottlenecks.


View use case

Detect and correct delivery risks

CodeScene uses a machine learning algorithm that is trained to detect technical risks while weighting in on the social side of code such as the experience of the developer doing the changes.
