Code Quality Audit
Manage Operational Risk and Reduce Support Costs
Development organizations must produce quality code on time and within budget while the complexity of software composition grows. As a result of this increasing complexity, merger and acquisition (M&A) due diligence transactions are becoming more focused on the assessment of software assets. Similarly, many companies value an outside opinion about their own code and software development processes.
The Black Duck Code Quality Audit (CQA) addresses both internal audit needs as well as M&A due diligence requirements by delivering a comprehensive code quality report. The analysis evaluates key software quality criteria such as code reliability, efficiency, and maintainability to help organizations manage operational risk, reduce support costs, and anticipate future issues in M&A transactions.
Developed with the input of Black Duck customers which include some of the largest and most active acquirers, the CQA is designed to help diligence teams and engineering managers compare their code against industry standards. The Code Quality Audit report provides an overall quality assessment informed by use of static analysis of the code, comparative analysis based on other code quality audit data, and inspection of the processes used to create the code.
