NDepend Case Study: Increasing Development Efficiency in the Medical Laboratory Sector

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

My dad being an early programmer in the 70's, I have been fortunate to switch from playing with Lego, to program my own micro-games, when I was still a kid. Since then I never stop programming.

I graduated in Mathematics and Software engineering. After a decade of C++ programming and consultancy, I got interested in the brand new .NET platform in 2002. I had the chance to write the best-seller book (in French) on .NET and C#, published by O'Reilly (> 15.000 copies) and also did manage some academic and professional courses on the platform and C#.

Over the years, I gained a passion for understanding structure and evolution of large complex real-world applications, and for talking with talented developers behind it. As a consequence, I got interested in static code analysis and started the project NDepend.

Today, with more than 8.000 client companies, including many of the Fortune 500 ones, NDepend offers deeper insight and understanding about their code bases to a wide range of professional users around the world.

I live with my wife and our twin babies Léna and Paul, in the beautiful island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.
