OutSystems announced a partnership with Boncode, a Dutch provider of software analysis services, to give OutSystems customers another powerful resource to ensure that the company’s applications are being implemented optimally for maintainability, reliability, performance, and security.
The Boncode and OutSystems alliance effectively reduces technical debt, helping organizations to build fast and feel comfortable that the work they’re delivering is at peak quality levels. Having specialized in code analysis for object-oriented technologies such as Java and C#, Boncode coordinated its tooling, dashboard and approach to the specific characteristics of the OutSystems platform. The offering aligns to the strict standards of ISO 25010. This makes it possible to assess the future-proofness of OutSystems solutions and continuously monitor whether applications have been developed correctly and optimally, to ensure that risks are transparent and manageable.
Specific attention has been given to the implemented architecture. Besides visualizing the implemented architecture, the Boncode analysis tool also warns for violations of the OutSystems 4 Layer Canvas model.
Jeroen Meetsma, CTO of Boncode, emphasizes: “Software architecture often has a greater impact on the maintainability of a software product than the quality of the source code. Software architecture should therefore be analyzed in combination with source-code measurement.”
