The Status Analysis
The status of the quality of the code is obtained by analyzing the head of the most significant branch of the codebase (typically called master or main). The observation score and especially the rating of your entire set of source files is a very good snapshot indicator of your technical agility potential at this moment.
However, it says nothing about how the current status has materialized which means that it can’t be used to forecast the likely future, nor does it tell you very much about the capabilities, performance, or skills of your current development staff unless you know that they are the ones that made the bulk of the current code.
A very poor rating from a Status Analysis may represent an improvement from an even worse situation. A very good rating may be the legacy of great developers that haven’t been part of the staff for some time.
However important in itself, knowledge of the current status of the quality of the source code can’t stand alone.
The natural answer would be to carry out regular analysis over time and compare the change in quality. The CodeImprover Web Portal will provide this facility, but the CodeImprover platform offers an even more potent tool for monitoring and influencing the ever ongoing strive to improve the code quality.
