CAST recently surveyed 500 IT leaders, including 150 CIOs, 125 software architects and 125 application owners, at mid- to large-size organizations regarding their technology objectives and their ability to meet these goals based on the Software Intelligence they have around existing software portfolios.
This research exposes key areas where IT leaders lack Software Intelligence and digs deeper into top challenges as they look to meet the digital imperative while trimming IT costs, improving security and enabling the adoption of emerging technologies.
Given the extremely competitive business environment and rapid disruptions happening all around it is critical for organisations to
Rapidly respond to challenges and opportunities
Standardise process workflows
Enhance user experience

Watch this recording as we share our insights that will help you find answers for:
In this 30-min discussion hosted by Phillip Crenshaw, Vice President and Global Business Engineering Leader CGI and Bill Dickenson, CAST, you will learn about:
La nuova Guida Tecnica sulle Metriche Software e gli Standard CISQ di recente pubblicazione, merita un approfondimento di dettaglio che abbiamo pensato di offrirle invitandola al nostro Webinar.
Michele Slocovich, rappresentate del CISQ per l’Italia, presenterà i punti chiave del documento con particolare attenzione al tema della misurazione in ambito software in ottemperanza agli standard CISQ.
Les applications et logiciels sont des actifs précieux dans les entreprises de toutes tailles, avec des investissements qui ne cessent de croitre. Selon McKinsey, l’évolution de l’investissement dans le budget IT est passé récemment de 32% à 60%.
Cependant, mesurer la « valeur » reste une discipline difficile et la DSI doit démontrer de plus en plus la « valeur métier » au-delà des KPIs orientés technologie et réduction des coûts.
Dans ce webinar, découvrez les trois axes pour améliorer l'efficience et l'efficacité du développement de vos applications et devenir un partenaire du business :
Mieux investir les ressources pour fournir le plus de valeur possible au métier
Fournir des solutions de qualité et booster les résultats du business
Garantir la qualité des solutions développées pour booster les résultats du business
Customers are expecting rapid innovation and shorter time to market from enterprises. While many organizations are focused on developing digital solutions to meet customer experience requirements, the method to develop those leading edge solutions is still legacy. This leads to value leakage due to longer time to market, product-customer expectation mismatch and inefficiencies in the development process.
It is therefore imperative that enterprises embrace Agile and DevOps as part of their Digital Transformation journey to:
Drive greater frequency of deliver
Create faster business value
Drive Business / IT alignment
Just acquired a company and don't know your most valuable IT asset? Want to rationalize your applications? Thinking about moving to the Cloud?
Answering “Yes” to any of those questions means that, while you have been through a Merger & Acquisition, you will need to create a successful migration plan. This process can be complex and we have a solution that uses fact-based diagnostics to give you an objective view into your application portfolio.
Watch this webinar and leverage the results to prioritize your portfolio, estimate scope and effort, manage the transformation process and more. Learn how to customize these rules and metrics to govern cloud deployment decisions, for integration into a differentiated value proposition, or as inputs to a cognitive engine. Explore how a Cloud Assessment uses industry-proven metrics to ensure robust and secure applications.
Looking to accelerate your cloud migration? Want to move to the Pivotal platform but don’t know where to start? Are you unsure how your applications will behave on PCF?
Answering “Yes” to any of those questions means that, while you are in the right place, you may not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel but we can help! CAST Highlight provides objective metrics that will help you identify blockers and boosters to accelerate your migration to PCF.
Demand for IT enabled capabilities is increasing and at the same time there is an expectation that IT becomes more of a strategic business partner.
Budgeting to improve the application landscape sets the tone for how technology leadership is partnering with the rest of the organization and its perceived value to the company.
In this document, we focused on helping our readers by presenting a framework on how to assess the needs for application landscape improvements. Those needs have to be assessed from the business imperatives perspective such as time to market and then tied to IT metrics.
Application maintenance costs can certainly add up over time, especially if you aren’t tracking how much you are spending and where that money is going. Too often, companies will spend without thinking about how much of their budgets goes towards keeping applications running smoothly.
In fact, many companies tend to believe that adding new people to the staff will bolster production and, therefore, mitigate costs. Or they believe that cutting in certain places will offset the costs of application maintenance. In some instances, these approaches can be used as smaller parts of bigger application maintenance plans, but they cannot be the only steps taken.
Digital initiatives are putting tremendous amount of demand on IT applications as they provide key competitive advantage to the business. However at the same time IT department is marred with very high complexity due to:
Large portfolio of legacy applications
Proliferation of new solutions
Distributed hosting architecture – on-premise, private/public cloud, hybrid etc
Complex sourcing models – in-house, offshore, captive, outsourced, hybrid
Watch this recording to learn from experts and accelerate your digital transformation journey.
Older applications are far more likely to impact service continuity in the event of a production failure.
The shift toward Agile development teams might not be helping organizations modernize as quickly as the industry anticipated.
