BCG and CAST to Shed Light on Software Analytics

The Boston Consulting Group will team with CAST in a webinar to showcase how analytics can improve IT effectiveness

October 10, 2014—New York—
CAST, a leader in software analysis and measurement, will be teaming up with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) for a discussion of the business value of software analytics. Big data and analytics are being deployed by marketing, operations, and finance, but IT often lags the enterprise in leveraging analytics, especially when it comes to application development and maintenance (ADM).

One of the roadblocks to ADM analytics is the difficulty IT leaders have in making the business case. Andrew Agerbak, Associate Director at BCG will describe how software analytics has proven valuable for his clients in managing risky transformation programs and improving agility, flexibility, and efficiency in IT. He will be joined by Lev Lesokhin, EVP Strategy & Analytics at CAST who will describe how leading enterprises rely on software analytics to gain visibility into ADM performance and risk. Additionally, Mr. Agerbak will provide insight on:

  • Types of analytics that should be measured
  • How software analytics can help communicate success
  • Core pieces of the software analytics business case  

This 30-minute discussion is a must for executives at any IT-intensive enterprise. Business leaders and CIOs will learn what software analytics is and how the intelligent use of quality and productivity metrics will help improve IT investment decisions, operational performance, and customer outcomes.
