Mahindra Satyam launches APAS, a cloud based rapid portfolio analysis service powered by CAST Highlight


New York & Hyderabad, May 23, 2013 Mahindra Satyam, a leading global consulting and IT services provider, today announced the launch of APAS (Application Portfolio Alert System), a Rapid Portfolio Analysis solution powered by CAST Highlight. The offering is primarily aimed at helping CIOs and key decision makers with a timely alert system that would provide not only early warning into potential structural risks within their application portfolios but also specific code quality insight that will help in portfolio rationalization and application transformation decisions.

This launch further enhances the Mahindra Satyam set of offerings that are an outcome of the strategic partnership between Mahindra Satyam and CAST, the world leader in Software Analysis & Measurement (SAM). Mahindra Satyam APAS, based on CAST’s Highlight product, is an automated, non-intrusive, cloud-based solution for portfolio analysis available as a flexible subscription based service. With APAS, CIOs and IT VPs can now expect to analyze their complete portfolios within a couple of weeks without the overhead and hassles of a cumbersome and intrusive manual process.

It fulfils the long awaited dream of CIOs to gain ultra-quick insight into their application portfolios in a simple and secure manner without any disruption to their teams.”
