ABB and Codealike collaborates to improve software engineers’ productivity

Codealike provides licenses and support while ABB provides with intellectual property that will reach software developers worldwide for improving productivity.

Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 3rd, 2015 – Codealike, has announced an agreement with ABB Group to provide licenses and support of its technology in exchange of intellectual property that will be integrated to the service and release it to general public in the near future.

According to the report, new features has been released across ABB software development teams and will be available in the next months to the general public.

“This is an opportunity to bring developers a new set of features that has been proved to improve productivity in ABB Group’s teams. We’re pretty confident it will help our users to stay focused and be even more productive while coding. It’s also a big achievement to collaborate in such an agile way with a great corporation like ABB Group.”

Says Federico Lois, a Co-Founder at Codealike.

ABB Group has also announced the beginning of a pilot test that will include the integration of Codealike and other tools to measure and improve productivity through software development teams in USA, Europe and India.

“At ABB we’re using Codealike to improve developer productivity. Because Codealike’s algorithm for detecting productive time in Visual Studio is accurate to the millisecond, we can confidently say that if a developer increased their productive time by 30 minutes over yesterday they were more productive. While we do not share any individuals’ data with management— Codealike is not intended for performance evaluations —we have found their metrics are great for allowing individual developers to analyze and improve their own behavior.”

Codealike explained that new features, that will include intellectual property transferred by ABB Group, will be released soon and will allow developers to compete to each other as well as incorporate new habits that increase productivity while writing source code as well as improving the quality of the source code written.

The collaboration among both companies has also produced white papers and other assets that will soon be available to general public and other researchers in the area of Software Engineering.
