Elevator Pitch

Elevator Pitch

Silverthread is pioneering the new field of "software economics" by helping software leaders quantify hidden technical debt in complex software portfolios, build ROI business cases to lower cost and risk, and restore legacy systems to optimal technical health and business performance.


Software runs the world and many codebases are overburdened with complexity and hidden technical debt. Architectural degradation leads to higher maintenance costs, poor quality (higher defect rates), loss of agility and overall budget waste.

Silverthread has developed a highly-innovative approach to measuring various forms of technical debt --at the architectural design level-- and translating design quality metrics into business performance measures.

Silverthread developed this capability over 15+ years of R&D between MIT and Harvard Business School, and 5 years of commercial application. Like an MRI diagnosing root-causes of pain in the human body, the Silverthread Platform can diagnose and quantify sources of waste, cost and risk in complex codebases, and reliably predict and benchmark impact to the business performance measures. Silverthread also generates custom refactoring recipes for development teams to restore systems to optimal technical health and business performance.

Silverthread: Real Science, Real Results.

Please reach out to us if your organization can benefit from a health scan of internal legacy codebases (at the portfolio or individual system level). We make it easy and fun to work with our expert team : -)
