Management has no idea how hard it is for the IT technical teams working on major custom enhancements to key business applications to get the job done. The Ops team doesn't really grasp the technical complexity of the software architecture. The Dev team keeps throwing bad code over the wall which keeps the pagers going off every other weekend. CAST provides the common language to track and control the technical quality of everything that's built and operated.

All too often, the QA organization is relegated to the end of the development process, and the QA process is squeezed as project delivery runs into hard business deadlines. QA should assure quality, rather than find a mountain of flaws built into the product, only to be fed back into a hectic re-development cycle. CAST enables the QA organization to "shift left" in terms of instilling a quality software culture in the development organization.

The measurement office is tasked with building scorecards and collecting metrics across the IT organization. Often these metrics are reactive in nature, that is they are collected about facts and events that have already taken place. Metrics are also notoriously hard to collect in an even, standardized way. CAST provides a measurement basis across the custom application portfolio that enables the measurement office with a much richer set of metrics that can be directly tied to business outcomes.

Risk & compliance personnel are often the first to suffer from the lack of credible software risk data in the IT environment. Collecting meaningful data is laborious and time intensive for the risk personnel, and for the development teams. CAST connects the dots for compliance audits and documentation processes by automating meaningful analytics collection. CAST also enables risk and CISO personnel to get ahead of application and data security by seeing and controlling the "as is" application and data architecture.
