AppMap’s Runtime Code Review Solution Enhances Developer Productivity


AppMap has announced its Runtime Code Review solution to transform software quality and the developer experience. AppMap’s mission is to deliver actionable insights to developers where they work, and AppMap continues to deliver on the promise with its latest release for the GitHub Marketplace.

Unexpected runtime defects account for a staggering 40% of performance problems and 50% of security defects. AppMap directly addresses this issue with its automated Runtime Code Review to find and fix runtime flaws prior to release. Unlike static code analysis and LLM-based code review, Runtime Code Review surfaces insights that are only visible while code executes with new data about code behavior and novel code quality analyses.

Without AppMap, developers typically spend a whopping 40% of their time each week in break-fix development cycles. With Runtime Code Review from AppMap, cycles of runtime investigation and code repair drop from weeks down to minutes saving organizations development time and money. AppMap’s first CI release, their new GitHub Action, brings instant insights to developers where they evaluate code quality: in the pull request.

AppMap’s users liken it to a robot software “architect” that evaluates and explains every permutation of a code change on the code’s runtime behavior. Each defect that AppMap finds gets a root cause diagnosis of problems, such as failing test cases, breaking API changes, newly introduced performance problems, and new runtime security flaws. Beyond finding problems, each automated review includes a set of interactive visual maps explaining the behavior causing the issue.

AppMap has raised $10 million from an assembled team of investors with deep expertise in developer-led growth, DevSecOps, and the observability market. Key investors include Work-Bench Ventures, Forgepoint Capital, Venture Guides, Unusual Ventures, and Dell Technology Capital, with support from Uncorrelated Ventures, Secure Octane, Argon Ventures, and select angels. Funding will be used to accelerate the development of AppMap’s industry-leading platform, grow the team, and expand the company’s go-to market.
