CAST Delivers Advanced Analytics and Quality Management With AIP 6.2

Application Intelligence Platform Expands Management-Level Control and Premieres the CAST “Action Plan”

NEW YORK, NY–(EMWNews – July 15, 2008) – CAST, the leader in Automated

Application Intelligence, today announced version 6.2 of its principal

solution, Application Intelligence Platform (AIP). AIP is an automated

system designed to measure the technical quality of software and the

performance of development teams. This solution can read and analyze most

major technologies across all layers of an application. AIP version 6.2

features include advanced analytics, integration with third party code

analyzers, CAST’s new “Action Plan” feature as well as expanded rules

coverage.

“Assessing the quality of critical applications remains one of the biggest

question marks for IT executives,” said Vincent Delaroche, CAST’s CEO and

Chairman. “By analyzing all tiers of a complex application and providing

advanced analytics, AIP 6.2 enables managers to detect defects earlier,

drive down maintenance costs over time and deliver faster development

results to the business.”

CAST AIP 6.2 provides advanced features to filter and analyze application

quality metrics, which allows managers to focus on a specific application’s

technical quality. Furthermore, a new export feature helps users perform

advanced analytics on quality metrics data in Excel and other common

reporting tools.

The new version also provides enhanced capability to integrate metrics

generated from third party static code analyzers into the CAST Application

Intelligence Platform. Metrics and data from third party tools can be

seamlessly integrated into the AIP Dashboard to be viewed and tracked along with the data from

AIP’s native analyzers.

AIP’s new “Action Plan” feature allows users to select critical violations

and track them through a custom report. Users will also have the ability to

see which of these violations have been fixed and monitor them from build

to build. This greatly enhances the capability of the manager to assess and

minimize project risks and prioritize resource allocation.

“CAST AIP gives us a complete picture of our software development landscape

across multiple products in development, spanning millions of lines of

code,” said Caren Evans, VP of Software Engineering at Raymond James

Financial, Inc. “The new features in AIP 6.2 will help make the quality

review process much more efficient as managers can automatically track

progress from a technical quality perspective.”

CAST AIP 6.2 also has expanded its coverage of SAP ABAP rules, added new

SQL rules to identify queries against large tables that have an adverse

impact on performance, and several new Java and Hibernate rules which have

been added to further improve the capability of the platform.
