Taking control of technical debt has become a top priority for software organizations that manage multiple software projects and legacy code.
Technical debt creates brittle code, unnecessary limitations, missed delivery dates, quality shortfalls and software maintenance costs that are 100% avoidable.
With an unmatched ability to discover relevant ideas, problem solving techniques, code, scripts and supporting artifacts from software development and deployment activities, Krugle helps teams understand, avoid and reduce technical debt. Krugle guides Developers, Test Engineers, DevOps staff and Support teams to the best insights and problem solving approaches from all corners of your organization.
Software Technical Debt: the Billion $ Problem
Although most organizations have examples of well structured, carefully planned and meticulously maintained software, most projects fall consistently short of these standards. Requirements are not updated, quick fixes are made without complete unit and integration testing, fixes on critical development branches go unmerged, documentation is neglected and best practices go ignored. As a result, the entropy of your code base continually grows - creating an ever larger and more expensive code maintenance liability. Analysts estimate that in most organaizations, 40+% of software development and deployment expenses are related to unmanaged technical debt.
The fundamental problem is poor information access. Your team simply doesn't have easy access to the development information it needs most. Even though you've already paid to fix a bug, sidestep a nasty programming pitfall, achieve compliance or remedy a pesky deployment issue, it is likely that similar issues will be handled separately and independently.
