How does Understand compare with other software tools?

We often get asked for a list that compares Understand with other similar products, but this is harder to do than you might think. To our knowledge we have no direct competitors. We have taken a unique approach with Understand, creating an IDE focused on helping you maintain your code. We do that through metrics, graphs, code standards checking, plugins, and many other ways. If you are strictly after a metrics tool, there are definitely other options, but Understand will do a great job at providing you with what you need, along with a ton of other features. So, without making a list of literally hundreds of features, in dozens of different products, here is a diagram that compares Understand with some of the other major tools in the software development market.
