CodeScene gives you unique insights into your development projects. It identifies the parts of your system that are expensive to maintain, code at risk for defects, and team productivity bottlenecks.

CodeScene On-Premise

CodeScene is a new generation of tool that gives you unique insights into the development of your system. CodeScene revolutionizes your ability to predict future problems in software systems. Our fully automated analyses lets you avoid unexpected software maintenance costs, take corrective actions on time, and get a holistic overview of the state of your codebase at any time.

"The research and ideas of Adam Tornhill and its embodiment in the Empear toolset has got to be the most significant contribution in the last 10 years to how we understand the evolution of code." Aslam Khan, Managing Director, ThoughtWorks Pan Africa

The analyses are based on the evolution of your codebase. We combine novel analysis algorithms with modern machine learning techniques to identify patterns in how your code evolves:

  • Predict the parts that are most expensive to maintain.
  • Identify code at risk for defects.
  • Discover possible team productivity bottlenecks.
  • Automated supervision of potential quality issues in the code.
  • Use CodeScene’s revolutionary X-Ray technology to get deep insights into your code and prioritize improvements and refactorings.

Since the costs and risks in large-scale software development are as much organizational as technical, CodeScene comes with a set of groundbreaking social analyses of your development projects. Our social metrics lets you:

  • Find key contributors to your codebase.
  • Evaluate how well your current organization fits the way the software is designed.
  • Identify expensive communication paths in your organization.
  • Detect modules in your codebase with expensive coordination needs across teams and individuals.
  • Support off-boarding by identifying knowledge loss as developers leave the project or organization.

CodeScene is a fully automated tool tailored to multiple roles within a software organization:  

  • Technical personnel use the tool to identify architectural risks, prioritize improvements and monitor the health of the codebase. 
  • Testers use the tool to prioritize feature areas to test and use the social analyses to coordinate and communicate with the developers.
  • Technical Leaders and Managers use the analyses to identify key developers, get organizational insights for on- and off-boarding as well as for risk management.

CodeScene is delivered with on-site training by world-class experts in the field and professional documentation to help you get the most out of the analysis results.

System Overview

  • CodeScene is a web-based tool that runs in all modern web browsers.
  • Unlimited number of users of CodeScene.
  • Install CodeScene on-premise on your own server (your source code never leaves your system).
  • Configure the tool to run an analysis as often as you’d like.
  • Works on all major programming languages (Java, C#, C, C++, Clojure, Scala, F#, SQL, JavaScript and many more).
  • Git as a version-control system (note that you can automatically convert from Subversion, TFS, etc to Git for an analysis).
  • Analyses up to 25 million lines of code and 600.000 commits on a standard laptop.
  • Analyses codebases split across multiple Git repositories.

CodeScene Enterprise Edition is delivered as a subscription service with an annual fee. The subscription fee depends upon the number of authors (contributors) in the codebase that you are analysing.

CodeScene Cloud

In addition to the on-premise version, we provide a cloud version of CodeScene. Go to and sign in with GitHub to get started. CodeScene Cloud is currently in alpha, meaning that all features are not yet available. Please have a look at our Roadmap for more information.
