DETANGLE - Software Analysis beyond Code Analysis

Our innovative feature-based effort and quality analysis reveals imbalances between R&D effort and the business value of features.

DETANGLE analysis enables business and software development to act in concert. Heated subjective discussions turn into data-driven, fact-based business decisions.

The truth has already been coded

Improved Quality

DETANGLE enables all stakeholder to find an optimal balance between features and quality when realizing new features and reducing technical debt.

Insightful Monitoring

DETANGLE makes the invisible visible by delivering "aha moments" to engineers and managers alike.

Better Planning

DETANGLE lets you take decisions in a mutually comprehensible and agreeable way be offering an objective perspective on any project.

Feature Quality Improvement

How well can you extend or add new features for customers? Which parts of the code can you extend well and which not? Which parts are worth improving and which not?

DETANGLE measures feature maintainability to suggest improvements relevant to your business functionality.

Where do you expect the most errors to come? Identifying the hot spots of bugs is one part of the game. But predicting new hotspots allows addressing them early.

DETANGLE predicts errors based on feature maintainability and suggests improvements to avoid exponential cost growth later.

Effort Monitoring

For what (functionality) and where (in code) do you spend the main development effort? Is it supposed to be this way?

DETANGLE monitors the effort distribution to let you check customer value against effort expectations.

Effort Estimation

How do you know how much effort it takes to improve your quality? Is there any evidence to base on your estimations?

DETANGLE provides effort estimations of quality improvements to balance improvement benefits versus their costs.

Process Quality Monitoring

What needs to be done - in a pragmatic way - to be able to answer the former questions?

DETANGLE measures the process quality and suggests process improvements to get the most beneficial recommendations.

People’s System Knowledge

People and their system knowledge are a major player in software engineering. How do you manage the main risk of knowledge distribution?

DETANGLE identifies the patterns of system knowledge within your teams, across teams and helps to reduce the main risks of an unbalanced knowledge distribution.

"In the initial Red Flag Due Diligence of a German software manufacturer with nearshore development in South East Europe, the Cape of Good Code team quickly delivered meaningful results regarding the quality of the development processes, the distribution of skills and potential dependencies between the manufacturer and the nearshore service provider. In the subsequent Deep Dive Due Diligence, security gaps and risks from open source licences as well as the maintainability and cloud readiness of the software were carefully analysed and comprehensibly prepared as a basis for decision-making. It was very helpful that the expertise of the investigation was also acknowledged by the target."

"With DETANGLE, Cape of Good Code provides analysis results quickly and clearly and 
thus supports in focusing on the most important quality risks based on facts in order to 
set the necessary development priorities."
Thorsten Braun Head of TrainIT Technology and Architecture, Siemens Mobility
"Cape of Good Code has supported us competently in the acquisition of one of our software suppliers. 
The focus of the cooperation was on the technical due diligence. 
We were particularly impressed by the DETANGLE Analysis Suite from Cape of Good Code. 
The convincing and fact-based evaluations of the tool enabled us to identify the potential risks 
of the software assets to be acquired and thus make informed decisions."
Martin Montag Global Head of Industrial Processes at Atotech Group
"DETANGLE feature debt gave us a totally new view on the complexity of our software and where to focus our quality measures on. In addition, DETANGLE’s transparency of knowledge risks are most relevant to any organization, no matter which size."
Florian Byliza CTO Gastfreund GmbH
"Cape of Good Code has broken down the KAIT regulations on application development to well-directed questions and has provided well-chosen and specifically adapted best-practice recommendations as answers to us. By implementing these recommendations we can adapt our product development pragmatically and precisely in a KAIT compliant way."
Oliver Kessler Management Board of Averroes Concept Lounge GmbH
