New CAST AIP Release: Part 2 - Appmarq


As you may have heard, we are launching a brand-new version of CAST Application Intelligence Platform this month, and we’re giving our readers a special preview of what’s in store for the release in a series of blog posts. In case you missed it, we previously shared details on the new Delivery Management Tool that eases the process of delivering enterprise source code.

For part two of our series, we will look at a new feature which has been integrated directly into the AIP dashboard. If you are already a CAST customer, you may know about Appmarq, the industry’s largest quality benchmarking repository -- made up of more than 500 billion lines of code from over 1,500 applications and 200 organizations. From this information, we can access trend data of the structural quality of applications across different industries.. In the past, CAST AIP users went through a separate service to gain access to the Appmarq database. But with the release of AIP 7.1, our users will be able to directly access industry benchmarks through the dashboard, with the press of a button. And the best part? This huge repository of software quality knowledge will be free for CAST AIP 7.1 users!


We repeatedly hear from our customers that they get a ton of value from Appmarq benchmark reports, so we want to make it as easy as possible to access this valuable data so AIP 7.1 customers can benchmark their applications against industry and technology type. You can see in the screenshot below an example of an industry benchmark for an application that has gone through AIP 7.1:


IT decision-makers armed with these industry benchmarks will now be able to gauge the quality and resiliency of their own internal applications for actionable insight that can be used to make crucial investment decisions.

What do you think about this new feature? Leave your thoughts in a comment. And be sure to stay tuned for the last post in our sneak preview series!

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
