Executive IT Decision Making: Am I Properly Measuring IT Risk?

by

Business decisions made in organizations today are moving away from a gut feeling and more towards data-driven, objective decision making. But what can IT do to prepare? For IT to have true visibility and scientific decision-making into their application development they need to have a view at the end product itself -- its stability, robustness, performance, security, and development velocity.

Developers are currently equipped with tools to help them "spell check" their pieces of the code, but the issue is they’re not looking at the larger picture -- the architectural and structural vulnerabilities that remain hidden in the complex, multi-tiered modern day frameworks. Imagine trying to understand a great novel's plot line and story structure by reading randomly ripped out pages from the book.

Our very own Konstantin Berger breaks down how an IT organization, equipped with an application portfolio analyzer like CAST’s AIP, can reduce its IT risk, produce higher quality applications, and help the business budget better based on application health, maintainability, and lifecycle. Hear what he has to say in the video below.
