Siemens Healthcare produces imaging equipment for the medical sector in a variety of fields and is based in Germany. Looking to reduce development costs on the next generation of medical imaging equipment, Siemens decided on a platform approach. They have been kind enough to share what they did in an NDepend Case Study.
This brought forth three specific challenges for the company:
- How can we guarantee the stability of APIs?
- Can we even make a breaking change?
- How do we guarantee quality over builds?

Developing applications for use in the health care industry is stressful because the margin of error is almost non-existent. Whether your tool is for treatment, research, or analysis, it needs to be dependable and accurate. The more complex the application is, the higher the chance for errors and delays in development. Dependable companies abide by rigorous methodologies to develop their code before deploying it to clients. In this NDepend case study, we learn why a company in this sector chose NDepend, and why it became an integral part of their development process.
Stago works in the medical lab industry, producing lab analysis tools that focus on haemostasis and coagulation. Working hard for over 60 years and valuing long term investments, they have created a name for themselves in the industry. A few years ago, they wanted to make their software development process more efficient. In addition, they wanted to easily enforce their own best practices and code quality standards across their teams. The goal was to be able to catch issues earlier in the development cycle to cut costs and time spent on quality assurance post-development.
“We selected NDepend after reviewing all the other options on the market and it quickly became the backbone of our development effort.”
– Fabien Prestavoine, Software Architect at Stago
