Benefits

Static source code analyzer products enable companies to reduce risk, minimize cost and increase return on investment

Process Benefits

Static source code analyzer products generate process-level benefits, such as decreasing software development risk, raising software quality and improving team productivity

Decrease Risk

Enables development teams to decrease the risks of software development within a short amount of time, by detecting bugs and providing an opportunity to fix them before rolling software out to production, thereby avoiding the risk of unexpected business disruption

Increase Sustainability

In the long run, contributes significantly to increase the life time of applications by managing technical debt, i.e. reducing duplications, complexity, and potential bugs, keeping code architecture clean. In other words, increases the maintainability of software, along with its ability to handle changes and therefore to adapt to new business needs.

Improve Productivity

Improves the productivity of software development teams, by enabling teams to detect and suppress code duplication and redundancy, to reduce the size of the application while maintaining its functional perimeter. Also helps reduce code complexity, making it easier to read and understand code during maintenance windows and reducing maintenance time and cost.

Raise Quality

Performs multi-dimensional analysis to detect code duplications, code complexity, identify violations of coding standards and help development teams efficiently identify and eradicate bugs. Allow managers and developers to create fully customizable dashboards and filters to let them focus only on key areas of quality management, to monitor code quality, keep track of issues and ensure that products are delivered on time and at the agreed quality level.

Product Benefits

Static source code analyzer products help businesses reduce training costs, improve software quality and benefit from bottom-up adoption

Bring Technical Debt under Control

Enables development teams to separate legacy debt from new debt added to software. This enables teams to take control of any new technical debt in a software application and fix it before dealing with legacy issues. It also helps organizations track the source of code quality issues and assess improvements in code quality over time.

Increase Developer Skills

Developers receives continuous feedback on quality issues as they are added, allowing to understand the quality of their software and improve their programming skills. It fosters collective ownership and responsibility for software applications across organizational teams.

Enable Continuous Code Quality Management

By using the Continuous Inspection capability, code analysis becomes easy and development teams receive valuable insight, ensuring that it is widely adopted. Code quality now becomes part of the development process and part of the DNA of the development team, instead of serving merely as a control process that is performed infrequently and without true developer buy-in. In the long run, this raises the quality of software and reduces the costs and risks of software maintenance.

Define and Implement Requirements Efficiently

CachéQuality comes with a pre-defined set of standards that enable software managers and development to immediately gain insight into application quality. It is also possible to easily configure the platform to adapt to specific team or organizational requirements and only display specific metrics, thus avoiding unwanted “noise” in quality reports. A quick feedback loop makes it possible to adjust these requirements easily.
