Manage technical debt

Reduce architectural technical debt in your applications with AI-powered observability. vFunction dynamic and static analysis pinpoints issues like business logic modularity, resource exclusivity, domain dependencies, and architectural complexity, generating an actionable to-do list based on your top priorities.

Architectural technical debt:
A multi-billion dollar problem

The largest source of technical debt today lies in application architecture, where complexity, architectural drift, and poor architectural decisions reduce engineering velocity and block modernization initiatives. vFunction is the only platform that focuses specifically on this challenge, identifying the many types of technical debt that can be remediated by refactoring and architecture modernization.

Address dynamically identified high-debt classes

Reduce dependencies

Upgrade aging frameworks

Remove dynamically identified dead code

Isolate each domain or service

Improve cloud suitability

Increase resource exclusivity

Reduce complexity in common libraries

Increase class exclusivity

Discover technical debt across applications

vFunction identifies architectural technical debt in your applications, using a unique combination of dynamic analysis in production and static analysis of your binaries to uncover the root cause of cross-domain pollution, resource interdependencies, dead code, and more.

Prioritize remediation based on business goals

Fix issues stemming from bad architectural choices based on your priorities around engineering velocity, scalability, resiliency, and cloud modernization goals.

Assess cloud-readiness

Score each application on its suitability for cloud migration using vFunction’s AI-powered observability.


  • Assess the compatibility of existing frameworks with cloud-friendly alternatives.
  • Evaluate how effectively the application manages its state.
  • Check for the application’s compliance with cloud-native standards.
  • Analyze the efficiency and compatibility of the application’s database access mechanisms with cloud environments.
  • Assess the readiness of the application’s CI/CD processes for cloud integration.
  • Examine the need for API updates to ensure they align with cloud architecture requirements.
  • Review app security measures to ensure they meet the stringent demands of cloud-based environments.
  • Evaluate the potential and readiness of the application to be refactored into microservices for cloud optimization.
  • Analyze the application’s resource utilization to ensure efficient performance in the cloud.
  • Inspect how the application manages its dependencies.

Use Cases

One platform — many ways to tackle technical debt

vFunction accelerates your transformation initiatives, whether reducing complexity in a distributed architecture, turning monoliths into microservices, or moving to modern, cloud-native infrastructure. AI-driven insights continuously help modernize the products that drive your business.

Discover your architecture

Map the real-time relationships, dependencies, and structure of your applications with AI-powered observability.

Prevent architectural drift

Visualize how applications change over time and get back to the baseline you set by observing your architecture after each release.

Increase application resiliency

Continuously modernize and strengthen your applications, reducing unnecessary dependencies and creating more resilient boundaries between application domains.

Move from monolith to microservices

Isolate and modularize domains in your monolithic applications, then convert them to microservices with code extraction, REST API generation, and automatic framework upgrades.

How do you identify important architectural events?

Architectural events provide crucial insights into the changes and activities that impact application architecture. They help identify areas of high technical debt, monitor architectural quality, and catch potential issues before they escalate into significant problems. These events serve as vital indicators of your application’s architecture health.
