The importance of Software Maps through the lens of software engineering

Unveiling the truth in your code

Have you ever imagined understanding every line of code that you have ever written after a month, after 2 months, after 6 months, and after a year? The complexity of code exponentially grows as many other developers add to the code base, and with these complexities increasing day over day, could you imagine a world where you can remain clear on the precise meaning and value of the entire database as time goes on?

If you’re a developer or someone involved in a project where code features somewhere along the line, all likelihood is that you will want to know exactly how the changes constantly being implemented in the codebase are making an overall impact. Such knowledge can make all the difference, as you’re likely also aware of the constant risk that details of your codebase repositories are malfunctioning out of sight, draining your time and effort and preventing your project from functioning in the way that you intended.

Slicing through the opaque mass of endless data repositories by identifying the key domain concepts reflected by the code, the importance of software maps lies in the power of insight through hierarchical visualisation and a clear layout; in its ability to sift out and illustrate the code units within their context. Using hierarchy visualisation to help you identify exactly why and how the data is affecting your software’s performance levels, the map’s ability to depict at least three data dimensions in a single, clean image that highlights the root cause and can be understood without a developer’s specialist knowledge in software engineering sets it apart in its field. Bring the code to the people!
