MEGA and CAST Partner to Remove IT Complexity from Business Transformation and Modernization

New York  – Dec 19, 2016CAST, and MEGA International today announced a partnership to integrate CAST Highlight into MEGA’s HOPEX IT Portfolio Management solution to help companies reduce the complexity, risk and cost of business transformation while improving ongoing management of their IT portfolio.

HOPEX IT Portfolio Management helps companies streamline IT investments, align them with business priorities and make decisions on adding and retiring technologies at the right time to avoid costly redundancies or obsolescence. Because IT drives most businesses today, it is often the first step in business transformation.

CAST Highlight identifies software risks and cost savings opportunities by providing objective, fact-based insights on the health of application portfolios, including risk of failure, modernization complexities or maintenance effort and identifies factors that could speed up or slow down digital transformation. Highlight complements existing portfolio management efforts with predictive analytics, enabling teams to become more proactive.

With this integration, MEGA customers will be able to consume CAST metrics around risk, cost and complexity directly in HOPEX IT Portfolio Management. In a world where software is everywhere but incredibly complex, the ability to make smart decisions around quickly evolving environments is paramount. CAST and MEGA smartly combine objectivity and traceability to strengthen the alignment between business and IT for quick and informed decision making.

“The shift to digital is becoming increasingly complex, particularly for global, IT-intensive organizations. We are excited to provide objective measurement across the business, operations and software development with MEGA, enabling more seamless and successful transformations,” noted Vincent Delaroche, Chairman and CEO, CAST. “It’s a balancing act for teams to keep operations running smoothly while driving innovative change in software assets. CAST and MEGA are coming together to make applications more intelligent and ensure they drive tangible business value.”

“Until now, these two solutions have played a vital, but independent role in helping enterprises build reliable, efficient IT systems that can fuel the business innovation necessary to drive digital transformation,” explained Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “By adding CAST Highlight to HOPEX IT Portfolio Management, our customers can secure even more valuable, comprehensive insights into the IT portfolio to aid business transformation and improve corporate performance.”
