Manual code inspections for today’s systems are no longer cost-effective due to the increasing size and complexity of modern applications. Instead, developers need to quickly and effectively assess the quality of their code using software metrics for testability, maintainability, and clarity. Each of these characteristics are fundamental in the overall assessment of code quality, and the process for determining them requires software quality metrics tools to efficiently measure code quality.

LDRA automates code quality review
Our quality review tools analyse the code and report on metrics for testability, maintainability, and clarity.
