  • Prioritize the code that’s most expensive to maintain.
  • Identify delivery risks before they become an issue.
  • Discover team productivity bottlenecks.
  • Support onboarding with knowledge maps of your system.
  • Offboard by identifying the areas in need of knowledge transfer.
  • Get focused refactoring targets through CodeScene’s revolutionary X-Ray technology.

CodeScene is delivered with professional documentation. We also provide optional on-site training and services.
