I had the pleasure of moderating a panel discussion with Bill Martorelli, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Inc; Dr. Richard Mark Soley, Chairman and CEO of Object Management Group (OMG); Siva Ganesan, VP & Global Head of Assurance Services at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS); and Lev Lesokhin, EVP, Strategy & Market Development at CAST.
In my last post we discussed the complimentary nature of remediation cost and risk level assessment. As a follow up, I wanted to dwell on the objective risk level assessment. Is it even possible? If not, how close to it can we get? How valuable is an estimation of the risk level? Could it be the Holy Grail of software analysis and measurement? Or is it even worth the effort?
I’ve been asked time and again how CAST is different from performance engineering. And here’s my answer: The CAST discipline of software analysis and measurement versus performance engineering couldn’t be more different. And I’ll explain why and how in a moment. But along with that, it should be noted that they also are like peanut butter and chocolate -- they can go very well together.
