Google Maps for your architecture

Reverse-engineers all database structures, code components, and interdependencies in complex software systems, down to the tiniest details. Creates accurate, interactive architecture blueprints.

   Request personal demo

Navigate through a complex system, perform precise analysis of the software structure,
and make better decisions on application architecture.

Powerful, intuitive navigation

Google Maps like navigation

Visualize all application components and their dependencies. Zoom in and out, down to the finest detail.

Different levels of abstraction

Automatically understand the technology stack, application layers, and dependencies with 5 levels of granularity - from abstracted services to object level granularity

Different levels of abstraction

End-to-End transaction views

Quickly view the entire flow of a transaction in the application. Starting from UI, traversing through several intermediate layers and ending in the database

End-to-End transaction views

Module views based on Tagging

Tag components that constitute the same function or module and visualize how the different modules interact with each other in an application

Module views based on Tagging

Inventory of all technology components

Inventory and export all the languages, frameworks, libraries, and databases used in the application

Inventory of all technology components

Precise, deep analysis of application structures

Search for frameworks and show where they are used

Quickly identify farmeworks/DLLs/libraries, their associated dependencies and pinpoint where they are used

Search for frameworks and show where they are used

Data access graph

Automatically identify and map the pathways of all the components that are involved in processing or using a data entity.

Data access graph

API call graph

Automatically identify API routes with tight dependencies between them (hard to separate) and flows with low dependencies (to be considered for separation).

API call graph

Visualize interdependencies & their types

Map how the different software components interact with each other in a complex multi-technnology application. Visualize the effects of single component change on the entire application

Visualize interdependencies & their types

Auto discover candidates for de-coupling

Quickly identify the artefacts (horizontal layer) contributing to functional communities. Automatically identify communities tightly coupled and with low modularity (hard to separate) and communities with low coupling that could be isolated with minimal effort.

Auto discover candidates for de-coupling

Auto discover candidates for microservices

Find the most practical (low effort) Microservices candidates. Identify core components (vertical layer) supporting several functions, a good starting point for microservices.

Auto discover candidates for microservices

Easy team collaboration

Attach notes

Annotate critical components which can then be zoomed in and analyzed by the team members.

Attach notes

Share customized views

Create customized views of the architecture to share with the team.

Share customized views

Model proposed architecture changes

Brainstorm proposed changes by adding/editing components and links in the blueprints to illustrate the impact on the architecture.

Model proposed architecture changes

See whose modules your changes will affect

Individual developers can see how their changes impact the architecture and indicate the changes to the affected team.
