After 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.
