Start the New Year Right By Planning to Attend SHARE and Learn How to Modernize Your Code with CM First

The Impact of Technical Debt

“Join CM First at SHARE this year,” said John Rhodes. “Begin modernization today.”

CM First announces plans to participate at SHARE in Anaheim, March 13, 2014; John Rhodes will be speaking about how to unlock your legacy code and increase business agility. The beginning of a new year is a great time to start off on a plan to modernize applications, allowing you to exploit new technologies such as Cloud and mobile. A great place to start is reducing technical debt in your applications. What is ‘technical debt?’ Ward Cunningham defined the term to mean the application design tradeoffs made every day which result in suboptimal code. Those tradeoffs might be a result of too short a development cycle, the decision to hire inexperienced programmers, the choice to copy and edit old code. Whatever the issue, ’interest’ accrues as programs became less secure, less stable, poorer performing and more difficult to maintain. Learn more about technical debt in CM First’s white paper on the subject.

“The start of a new year is a great time to consider how your application portfolio could be made more robust and responsive,” notes John Rhodes, CTO. “If a remediation plan is not in place, every change made in the future will be costlier and more risky. Technical debt is a debt no company can afford.”

For many, the idea of facing the millions of lines of code is as daunting as the debtor who owes $100,000 in credit card debt. To take a lot of the pain out of the problem, CM First created CM Meta Analytics, a solution that automates the analysis of code on virtually any platform and across a wide variety of languages. CM Meta Analytics also provides the information required to identify inefficiencies, map program, database and network lineages and understand code complexity.    Read more about CM Meta Analytics here:

“It’s unrealistic to refactor code manually,” notes Christoph Heinrich, CEO. “CM First created CM Meta Analytics to ensure that any company can reduce debt and position applications to exploit Cloud, mobile, Big Data or any other advanced capability desired. We also have other great solutions to help you modernize.”

Is it time to address technical debt? How much longer will customers tolerate security risk and slow response time? Invest in paying down the debt and recover the cost of wasted resources, while ensuring a quality customer experience.
