Assess Change Risk
Unknown dependencies add risk to the development lifecycle, create unplanned work, and slow projects down.
With CodeLogic’s real-time dependency mapping teams can view potential impact and more effectively assess high and low risk changes. CodeLogic unblocks projects by removing the backlog of change approvals and code reviews that cause development delays. With CodeLogic, teams can better evaluate and plan for high-risk changes and allow the lower risk changes to flow through project pipelines more quickly.
Improve App Modernization
Is this codebase salvageable? Can we untangle the code and modernize it for the cloud? Would we save development time and resources by rewriting it? These questions can take development teams months of costly analysis to answer as they try to understand the interconnectivity of a codebase. CodeLogic accelerates the decision-making process by revealing an accurate and up-to-date map of an application.
Developers and architects can quickly identify where major dependencies are and make informed decisions about architectural changes. Instead of spending months trying to uncover dependencies with outdated documentation, teams can speed up the development lifecycle by effectively knowing which decisions will be complex and which will be straightforward.
Govern Your Architecture
Software systems have their own rules. Whether defined by architects or by the development team, there are specific ways to work within an application’s codebase. Currently, development teams rely on code reviews to catch problems and ensure that rules are followed. For many teams, it’s common practice to trust that work is executed correctly, assume that code fixes are inevitable, and pray that breakages don’t impact an organization’s bottom line.
With CodeLogic, teams can set custom rules for application development down to the method and column and receive notifications when rules are violated. Automating application architecture compliance puts guardrails and peace of mind in place, improving change management efforts as early as code reviews and as late as release readiness checks.
Teams often rely on oral histories about applications and their connections. Static system documentation is onerous to maintain and quickly outdated. These challenges make it difficult to intelligently navigate applications. With CodeLogic, development teams can generate living application maps with a combination of static and runtime analysis, creating accurate, detailed, and always-updated system documentation that teams can understand and leverage.
CodeLogic’s living documentation allows development teams to answer the big questions: How does the application fit together? Where are the big dependencies? What are the base classes that everything derives from? Which concepts are on the periphery and what is central?
Improve the New Dev Experience
Developers are often on the move. Whether joining new companies or moving to a different application at the same company, getting up to speed on a new codebase is an ongoing challenge. Without accurate system documentation, the first months of work on a new application are slow, tedious and at higher risk for errors.
Using CodeLogic, developers on new projects have an accurate, living map of system architectures from day one. As a result, developers can acclimate more quickly, make changes more confidently, and contribute fully within three-to-four weeks instead of a typical three-to-four-month period.
