CAST has worked with David Consulting Group (DCG), the premier global provider of Application Development & Maintenance (ADM) support solutions for software optimization, for many years.

CAST-DCG-partnership

Taking advantage of the strengths of each organization, the combined offerings provide enhanced value to customers. It will help organizations with large portfolios proactively identify risky applications and/or inefficient coding practices that disrupt performance and increase maintenance costs. The end result will be applications that are easier to enhance and maintain at a lower cost.

The Rapid Portfolio Assessment (RPA), powered by CAST Highlight, provides a comprehensive picture of a portfolio’s total health.  The analysis offers key data on metrics and trends, and can also identify problem applications that could benefit from further evaluation.

The Structural Quality Assessment (SQA), powered by CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP), provides deep analysis of troubled applications that may be difficult to maintain and enhance, or those that suffer production stability and performance issues.  It identifies necessary improvements and follow-up assessments are performed to monitor the effectiveness of any changes.

As Mike Harris, President and CEO of DCG explained, “Every organization has applications in their portfolio that are more trouble than the others -- our new offerings help to isolate the problem applications with RPA and fix them with SQA.”
