SITA Invests in CAST for Structural Quality

Measurement of Two Core Applications to Minimize Software Risk in Airport Systems

NEW YORK, Thursday, November 15, 2012 – CAST, a world leader in software analysis and measurement, today announced an initial investment by SITA, the global air transport communications and IT leader, in the CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) to ensure high structural quality of their critical software products.

This initial investment is targeted at two applications that are at the heart of the IT infrastructure offered to airports and travel services providers. The CAST deployment comes atop an already sophisticated approach to code quality analysis. For several years, SITA has deployed state of the art IDE-level code analysis technology for their development teams and decided to address software risk issues at the system level. CAST AIP is being used to continually analyze the structure of these two systems in their entirety to add a transaction-based view of application risk across the software architecture.

“We are very pleased to add SITA as an important reference in the highly IT-intensive transportation industry,” said Lev Lesokhin, EVP Strategy and Market Development at CAST. “The SITA technology organization continues to demonstrate market leadership in applying software quality analysis technology to prevent common structural and security issues for their customers.”
