NEW YORK and PARIS, April 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CAST has announced the introduction of new capabilities that automatically recommend priority actions to take across application portfolios to optimize software maintenance costs and efficiency.
Available in CAST Highlight, the firm’s SaaS-based software intelligence product for rapid portfolio insights, the Portfolio Advisor for Software Maintenance automatically identifies applications and recommends corresponding actions around those which:
- Have too many or too few resources assigned that can/should be reallocated with minimal risk
- Are supported by development team(s) that need more training
- Have a high developer turnover rate, representing future risk
“With the rising need to optimize IT costs in the current economic climate, the demand for smarter portfolio governance has never been greater,” said Greg Rivera, vice president of product for CAST Highlight. “This new capability bolsters CAST Highlight’s ‘control tower’ capabilities that automatically understand application source code, generating risk and cost reduction recommendations that enable faster transformation at scale.”
