CAST Defends the Defenders


From the Pentagon to the Department of Energy, government organizations have been hard hit this year by IT systems outages, performance issues and security failures, most of which have stemmed from structural quality issues. But as bleak as this may sound, the good news is that these problems seem to have served as a wake-up call.

The Department of Homeland Security has already taken steps to begin addressing software structural quality issues by acknowledging they exist and bringing in IT leaders who can help them spot issues and fix them. Similarly, the U.S. Air Force announced in October that it had certified CAST's Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) to review its systems and applications and detect structural quality issues.

Now joining the effort to combat structural quality problems that assault performance and security of IT systems, the United States Army Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) has also recruited CAST's AIP. PEO EIS provides infrastructure and information management systems to the U.S. Army. It develops, acquires and deploys tactical and management information technology systems and products, while supporting the critical enterprise-wide Army ERP, Financial and Logistics systems that enable everything from supply provisioning to personnel management of troops.

The PEO EIS plans to use AIP to optimize enterprise application performance and stability and to manage the structural quality of critical software systems proactively. In addition to optimizing the performance of mission-critical application software used by the U.S. Army, CAST AIP will also augment the program's delivery governance, drive down maintenance costs and increase the reactivity of the Army's applications to new requirements.
