Recently, CAST Spain organized a round table to illustrate the benefits of Software Intelligence to aid enterprise-wide digital transformation efforts.
According to Computing, software and data have become the two most critical assets to drive effective transformation programs. This drives the need for modern development and innovation in enterprise software so IT organizations can protect their data while using it more efficiently.
“We make it our mission to analyze very complex software applications and see what's inside them,” said CAST CEO, Vincent Delaroche. “After all, software is something that you cannot see or touch, but we make that possible so IT teams can measure software risk and software performance. Because at the end of the day, what can be measured, can be improved.”
One solution discussed at the event, CAST Highlight, helps CIOs understand the status of their applications so they can help the business make smart decisions based on facts about software health.
Benefits of Application Portfolio Analysis with CAST Highlight:
As a SaaS-based application portfolio analysis solution, Highlight provides a global view of the entire application portfolio to facilitate faster fact-based decision making for digital transformation efforts that also consider software risk indicators.
Highlight also offers the additional benefit of adding transparency to cloud migration plans. By evaluating and identifying applications that are ready to migrate immediately, in addition to applications that require more time-intensive refactoring, Highlight helps development teams better estimate the effort required to realize full cloud benefits.

Erik Oltmans, an Associate Partner from EY, Netherlands, spoke at the Software Intelligence Forum on how the consulting behemoth uses Software Intelligence in its Transaction Advisory services.
Erik describes the changing landscape of M & A. Besides the financial and commercial aspects, PE firms now equally value technical assessments, especially for targets with significant software assets. He goes on to detail how CAST Highlight makes these assessments possible with limited access to the targetâ€™s systems, customized quality metrics, and liability implications of open source components - all three that are critical for an M&A due diligence.
