RWE Supply & Trading, the leading European energy trading house, decided to take proactive measures to safeguard itself from IT failures caused by increasing systems complexity, which could potentially increase risk and inhibit future change. It opted for CAST’s Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) to perform structural software risk analysis on key systems.
An organization can achieve transparency over application quality for outsourced Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) with assessments from CAST. You gain objective measurement to monitor compliance with development best practices and architectural guidelines, reducing risk and increasing transferability between teams.
Mr. Christian Tronchet, Head of Web Applications & Expertise, reports the benefits he gains from tightly managing his development and maintenance outsourced activities.
Using CAST AIP, the CTTI is able to analyze its application portfolio and classify applications by risk level. In addition, CAST enabled CTTIT to implement organization-wide process for quality assurance analysis and reporting.

Renate Bister, Process and Project Management and Software Technology, describes how automated function point counting and software quality analysis from CAST has quickened the company’s digital transformation.
Many organizations manage huge portfolios of custom applications on top of SAP. A number of them are mission-critical so it is vital to preserve or enhance the quality, robustness, maintainability and performance of these applications, whether developed in ABAP, Java or other languages, to reduce application maintenance costs and better manage outsourced development and maintenance.
The Benefits Of Software Analysis At ADP By Dominique Rodier , VP R&D France & Italy Director, ADP Global Product & Technology
When working with Agile, you need to control architecture, satisfy non-functional requirements, and reduce technical debt in short iterations. In this paper find out how the CAST AIP can be incorporated into a continuous integration environment to evaluate if newly integrated components violate rules of good architectural and coding practice affecting security, robustness, changeability, performance efficiency, and maintainability; adhere to the application’s architectural rules; and have structural problems that create technical debt.
Operationalization of CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) through Continuous Improvement Model (CIM) is a proven, repeatable and successful approach to rolling out CAST AIP. CIM is a full cycle of implementation, adoption, consumption and improvement that ensures client’s success through proper use and adoption of CAST.
Application architecture is required to ensure the structural integrity of an application portfolio, but it can seem impossible to ensure adherence to these standards. CAST changes all of that by automatically analyzing applications across all tiers and languages to provide Architects with the actionable metrics and information needed to assess the how well the architectural designs, rules and standards have been followed.
With CAST, the process of integrating and adapting Oracle applications becomes more automated with complete and accurate knowledge of the applications’ inner structure. IT teams no longer need to manually reverse-engineer their source code and can instead focus on quickly adapting them to company-specific needs.
Project managers need to ensure an application isn’t just delivered on time, but that it is stable, flexible and secure. CAST helps project managers ensure that development teams are following industry and internal coding best practices, architectural standards and designs, and documents development activity.
Modern mission-critical applications are multi-platform, multi-language and multi-sourced. CAST AIP gives you the comprehensive visibility and control needed to achieve significantly more business productivity from complex applications with an objective and repeatable way to measure and improve the application software quality.
The aim of this document is to describe CAST AIP’s current support and future roadmap for OWASP Top Ten 2013 (the document applies the very same way to OWASP Top Ten 2007).
CAST Strategy for the on-going support of OWASP Top Ten is to provide users with the means to check that valid protection is in place and whenever possible to provide development teams detect places where vulnerability is left in the code.

Technology continues to be an key asset that principally factors into the overall value and success of a merger. However, in a data driven world, many organizations still rely on basic due diligence and post-merger planning to mitigate the risk of the transaction. In this webinar Rishi Varma, Principal in Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) technology practice and M&A expert, and Lev Lesokhin, CAST EVP of Software Analytics, shared perspectives on how to understand the structural risk of software assets. They will define how to use an analytic-based approach on an organization’s application portfolio, or on a critical software asset, to de-risk the due diligence process and post-merger strategy.
