Center for Code Excellence

Expertise for outstanding software quality

The Center for Code Excellence (CCE) is the starting point for small-to-medium enterprises for the analysis, development and transfer of modern software development methods, techniques and processes.

Our aim is to make employees, in both development and technology and management, more aware of the importance of software quality, which can help to avoid higher software maintenance costs and simplify software testing, maintenance and expandability. With our services, we want to put companies in a position to develop excellent, sustainable and leading-edge software – in other words, to achieve code excellence.

The research activities of the CCE are transparent, design-oriented, and empirical in nature. We focus on quality and optimization aspects at both the engineering level and the code level, including:

  • Software Engineering Intelligence – Quality assurance, testing and maintenance
  • Software Engineering Management – Agile, DevOps and continuous development
  • Software Engineering for Machine Learning – Version control, continuous deployment (CD) and processes (MLOps)
