CAST-ing Quality on HCL’s Assessment Services

by

CAST announced today an agreement with HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services company, that will augment the outsourcing company’s ASEESS-SMART software assessment services with CAST’s Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) capabilities of automated analysis and measurement.

Of the agreement, Rajiv Sodhi, Sr. Corporate Vice President and Chief Customer Officer for Consumer Services, Manufacturing, Public Services, Enterprise Transformation and Strategic Sourcing for HCL Technologies, said, “As applications increasingly become core to the business transformation and operations of an enterprise, it has become important to embed greater degrees of predictability and performance assurance into the system. HCL is at the forefront of the next wave of establishing these quality standards of the future through its ‘ASSESS-SMART’ Services. Our alliance with CAST is one step in this direction and we are confident that their suite of tools will further augment our capabilities to deliver increased quality and cost-effectiveness of application development and maintenance initiatives to our customers.”

By leveraging CAST AIP, HCL strengthens its best-in-class software assessment service to its clients. AIP will analyze and measure structural quality attributes for HCL’s ASSESS-SMART clients, identifying any potential issues with the five key health factors of application software: robustness, security, transferability, changeability and performance.

Incorporating CAST AIP along with HCL’s own proprietary IPs in this space will ensure a substantially reduced risk of high impact business disruptions due to application unavailability, security issues and performance problems in the application environment.
