CAST

Capgemini Extends CAST Globally

by

Capgemini-Software-QualityAfter many years of close collaboration and significant industrialization investments led initially in France, Capgemini Group has completed a worldwide investment in automation from CAST.

The agreement will enable Capgemini to extend extended CAST technology, which has been in use at Capgemini’s Application Intelligence Center since 2006, on a global basis. This will ensure the highest software quality standards in application development and maintenance across all its clients worldwide and enable Capgemini to accelerate the introduction of new application risk assessment offers based on advanced structural software analytics from CAST.

Being among the first application services providers in the world to implement automated structural quality oversight in all application development and delivery, the deal demonstrates Capgemini's commitment to client success in its most fundamental form. Standardizing measurement of software construction at all points in the application lifecycle also forms a key element of lean principles applied to all development and maintenance work across the services giant.

The expertise gained in more than five years of collaboration will now be extended to new go-to-market capabilities as innovative avenues for client acquisition and extension. Structural quality measurement as part of the fabric of delivery provides a basis for differentiation, proactively building the foundation for quantum improvement in the client value equation, with Capgemini management leading the application services industry in its industrialization journey.

 

  This report describes the effects of different industrial factors on  structural quality. Structural quality differed across technologies with COBOL  applications generally having the lowest densities of critical weaknesses,  while JAVA-EE had the highest densities. While structural quality differed  slightly across industry segments, there was almost no effect from whether the  application was in- or outsourced, or whether it was produced on- or off-shore.  Large variations in the densities in critical weaknesses across applications  suggested the major factors in structural quality are more related to  conditions specific to each application.

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
