CodeScene 3.0: Behavioral Code Analysis Reborn

We’re proud to announce a new major release of CodeScene, version 3.0!

CodeScene 3.0 is a complete re-design in order to make the analysis data easily actionable, fit into your existing workflows, and to adapt the analysis information to different stakeholders.

The main features include auto-generated PDF reports that you can subscribe to, a new Code Health score for your hotspots, architectural-level metrics that let you analyse whole software architectures including microservices, and quality gates for CI/CD build pipelines.

CodeScene 3.0 identifies and prioritizes technical debt, lets you plan goals and actions, supervises them, and measures organizational aspects of code as well.

New Features

  • Goal Oriented Workflow for Technical Debt: Goals are specified using CodeScene’s Intelligent Notes, which is a concept that makes technical debt both transparent, contextual, and – most important – actionable. CodeScene present the status of your goals on the analysis dashboard and integrates them into the feedback loops provided by other 3.0 features such as the auto-generated reports and CI/CD quality gates.

  • Inter-Product Dashboards: CodeScene 3.0 introduces an inter-project dashboard that gives you a high-level overview of all your products. The key metrics on the dashboard, in particular the progress on the goals, point you to the products/codebases/projects in need of attention and actions.

The high-level dashboard shows that status of all your products at a glance.

  • System Health Dashboad for Real Time Monitoring: In large systems, the primary unit of measure is the architectural level like sub-systems, components, or microservices. With CodeScene 3.0, you get a dashboard that shows you the most important development KPIs per architectural component.
