Minimize Developer On & Off-boarding risks

Simulate a planned off-boarding and detect any risks before they turn into issues. Use this information to guide the on-boarding process and support re-planning and re-prioritizing efforts.


A developer or a contractor leaving an organization or being transferred to a different project also involves active knowledge loss. This leads to loss of mastery in some areas, as well as considerable technical issues and financial risks.


CodeScene comes with a project planning simulation model that helps explore the off-boarding risks while the developers are still aboard. This helps identify knowledge loss risk and helps with new developer on-boarding.

Benefits of this feature

Explore the effects of planned off-boarding

Explore the impact of planned off-boarding while developers are still aboard. Use this opportunity to identify risks, knowledge loss and areas of code in need of a new main developer.

Tab 2 - Leadership-2

Auto-Detect high-risk off-boarding

Auto-detect high risks areas in an off-boarding simulation. Learn if there are any high risk areas where you might lose mastery, which might lead to technical issues, delivery delays or missed deadlines.

Use the Off-Boarding Simulator to Plan Time for Learning


In case the off-boarding simulation points to significant knowledge loss of entire components or sub-systems, the information can be used to support re-planning or re-prioritizing features, as well as scheduling additional time for learning.                                  

Groups - Plan time for learning
  • Detect off-boarding risks by combining technical and social information
  • Identify the loss of active knowledge
  • Support re-planning and re-prioritizing features
  • Plan accordingly. Find experts to replace the knowledge loss or schedule additional time for learning

Use CodeScene to Guide Developer On- and Off-Boarding


Use CodeScene’s project planning feature to identify high-risk code that might get abandoned as a result of a developer leaving. This information can facilitate the on-boarding process for a new developer in that part of the code.

Groups - Guide on and offboarding
  • Simulate the developer off-boarding effect
  • Identify areas of code at high risk of being abandoned
  • Mitigate off-boarding risks based on real data from your codebase
  • Use these insights to facilitate the on-boarding for a new developer

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.

View 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.

View use case

Automate Code Reviews


CodeScene integrates with pull requests to provide feedback and detect code quality issues via an automated code review. This integration helps development teams by serving as a quality gate and early feedback loop.

View use case

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.

Understand the intersection of people and code

Adopted as a way of scaling the development organization, microservice architecture brings its own challenges. CodeScene helps you succeed with this high-discipline architecture by monitoring code, dependencies, and team coupling.
