Likelihood to Recommend
Codacy
I recommend it for companies that use several programming languages, as it supports several languages ​​such as Java, Javascript, Python, among others. However, for companies that use only one programming language, there are specific tools for each language that can be more complete in this scenario. I do not recommend it for companies that only use open source software, in which case there are other tools available.

Upsource is the best review tool we've found but it still has some flaws. Notably, it makes reviewing small and quick changes less convenient than they need to be, and diff viewing (especially collaboratively) can be tedious.
It does handle larger, iterative reviews well. Especially when using a feature branch, Upsource will track that branch and automatically add all commits to the review. You can then review the branch as a whole, or look at a subset of diffs.

Cons
Codacy
  • There should be customization to get code quality for your own projects if standards are provided.
  • Offline or a standalone application is much needed from Codacy to get local support.
  • Spots a lot of errors and small ones that don't affect much about quality and are de-facto standards.

  • Creating and closing reviews isn't as quick as it could be. You must create a review, assign reviewers, approve and close. I wish there would be a quick review-approve-close for a commit where the change is simple and doesn't require multiple review iterations.
  • Web based interface can be clunky, especially when looking at big diffs side-by-side
  • JetBrains IDE integration is somehow less convenient than going using it in browser.

Alternatives Considered
Codacy
Even though it is paid while SonarQube is free, we chose Codacy because it is simpler to configure and maintain the implemented rules. In addition, it offers support for the main programming languages ​​on the market, ensuring that we can continue to use it if we want to use other languages ​​in new products.

Compared to the other tools we evaluated, Upsource was the only tool that allowed distinct reviews without needing explicit pull requests while still being able to go in-depth when required. The diff viewer is serviceable and better than the alternatives, as well, especially the side-by-side viewer.
