CM Meta Analytics

Source Code Scanning, Code Comprehension and Quality Metrics

CM Meta Analytics can help large IT organizations automatically analyze and inventory existing software assets. Using the respected language-independent DMS © analysis engine as its core, CM Meta Analytics brings enterprise applications under centralized planning and control. CM Meta Analytics increases the value of a metadata investment by enabling deeper impact analysis, component reuse, code quality analysis, legacy modernization planning, and faster business process change across an enterprise application portfolio. CM Meta Analytics can scan a wide variety of language domains, ranging from object-oriented Java to procedural COBOL, JCL, and ASM. The solution is fast and accurate - processing millions of lines of code in short time windows, enabling analysis tasks to be accomplished that are not feasible using conventional techniques. CM Meta Analytics’ output can be interfaced with external enterprise metadata analysis tools, such as CA Repository, increasing the value of these tools to the enterprise.
