It is vital information to know how the elements of a code base depend on each other. As a developer you spend time thinking about how your layers should interact, creating interfaces and events to avoid dependencies between concrete classes.

As the code base grows, more and more time is spent managing and analyzing dependencies. If I refactor this piece of code, what will be the global impact? Is this layer allowed to access directly DB? Will I accidentally freeze the UI thread if my code invokes this method?

CppDepend comes with several facilities that allow the efficient dependency management. In seconds you can know which part of the code will be impacted if you refactor a class, you can be advised if a layer dependency violation has been accidentally created, you can pinpoint precisely which part of the code relies on a particular tier component, you can list methods that can be reached from a given method etc…
