Fact-Based & Code-Level Analysis

Highlight searches your portfolio problematic code patterns and programming practices that impact health and increases development costs. Resiliency, agility, code elegance & readability metrics you’ve never seen before.


Cloud Readiness Assessment Fast

Developed with the smartest cloud experts in the worlds, Highlight uses 140+ unique code patterns, to automatically builds your migration strategy by identifying where to start, quick wins, and which applications will take longer to migrate.  Where a Cloud expert would take weeks to analyze a single application to move to PaaS, Highlight does it for an entire portfolio in days.

PaaS Boosters 60%
Cloud Blockers 30%

Frameworks Security Hot Spots (CVEs)

Highlight identifies application security issues before black hats get their hands on it. It verifies if your application frameworks and third-party libraries contain CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) across 100K+ vulnerabilities referenced by MITRE and NIST.


Application Benchmarks

Highlight benchmarks each application against 3000+ applications. Compare “apples to apples” using more than a dozen benchmark dimensions (e.g. technology, application type or exposure, team skills and turnover ratio, total end-users, etc.).


Portfolio Demographics

How many applications in your portfolio are written in Java?  What are the most customer-vital applications? Which development teams have the highest turnover? Get numbers on your application landscape and easily see the associated technical software assessment.


Maintenance Effort Estimate

Where can you cut costs without degrading support to the business?  Using code-level metrics and COCOMO II (a cost estimation model for software development projects), Highlight tells you where and why you should increase or decrease your maintenance workforce.


Trends on Application KPIs

How to ensure risks are effectively mitigated? Are your software health factors decreasing or increasing across time? Highlight records the evolution of each KPI to let you know if your remediation strategy is finally paying.


Prioritize Your Most Business Critical Applications First

Highlight also captures business context metrics to help decision-makers make more informed decisions and quickly identify which apps to focus on first to address open source risk.

Effortless On-boarding

Thanks to a distributed workflow, adding a new application in Highlight takes minutes only:  scan code locally, answer a short web-based survey, your application is instantly available in Highlight.

Local Code Scan

We care about data privacy. At any moment, your source code doesn’t leave your infrastructure. Scan your application locally with our Highlight Agent, then upload metrics. See how it works

Scan 35+ Technologies

Highlight scans major technologies. 35+ programming languages are supported: Java, Javascript, Python, JSP, COBOL, SAP/Abap, C/C++, C#, PHP, Visual Basic, T-SQL, PL/SQL, Shell…

Custom Indicators

Create your own indicators and consolidate new analytics based on answered surveys – perfect for use cases like containerization readiness, customer satisfaction, Agile efficiency, etc.

Application Tags

create and attach tags to an application or a set of applications in bulk. For instance, you can now combine metrics to identify the best candidates for IaaS or PaaS and activate these tags as filters on all dashboards.

Flexible Keyword Scanner

Configure your own patterns to search specific content or combination of content during your code scan that meet your search criteria. This feature is especially useful in GDPR, security or copyright contexts.

CI/CD Ready

Highlight integrates within CI/CD pipelines through a configurable command line, in order to get fresh analytics after each sprint or release, or even nightly build? It only takes minutes! See how


Integrate Highlight metrics into your favorite tools using our public API. Key metrics can be extracted from the platform to be integrated wherever it will make sense for your organization, using our public REST API.

Azure DevOps Extensions

Do you want to continuously scan source code and track Highlight analytics on your Azure DevOps projects? Download our turnkey extensions from the Visual Studio Marketplace  and enjoy a continuous monitoring of projects.

Framework Inventory

Know the version, type and licensing of the frameworks used by your applications. Highlight references 150+ frameworks such as AngularJS, Spring, Backbone, Symfony, Zend, Hibernate, etc.

Role-Based Dashboards

At each level of your organization, enroll users with different profiles and associated visibility: Portfolio Managers, Contributors and Viewers.

Integration with EA & APM tools

In order to inject objective metrics into the EA and APM process, key Highlight indicators can now be integrated into third-party solutions such as Mega, BiZZdesign and Casewise.

Flexible Dashboard Filtering

You can filter results you’re seeing in the different screens & dashboards: by domains (eg: Business Units), technologies or specific time ranges, or a combination of these filtering criteria.

Portfolio Data Export

Export your portfolio results in standard formats. Highlight supports PowerPoint, XML and CSV data export in order to let you build custom reports.

Custom Surveys

Gather and aggregate data on your applications across your organization, to build exclusive additional risk analyses. These custom surveys can also be used for internal benchmarks of your entire portfolio.
