Helicopter View on your Portfolio Health

Highlight enables you to quickly and objectively measure software health, risks, complexity and cost of your application portfolio – in days.  Using a distributed and painless process, you can have exclusive insight into application strengths and weaknesses before any investment, rationalization or retirement decision is made on an IT asset.


Fact-Based & Code-Level Health Analysis

CAST has been a leader in Software Quality Measurement for 25 years.  Highlight searches for hundreds of problematic code patterns and bad programming practices that decrease development teams’ agility, increase risks and costs in your software. Software resiliency, agility, code elegance and Cloud readiness metrics give you facts about your portfolio you’ve never seen before.


Frameworks Security Hotspots (CVEs)

Have you heard recently about what happened to Equifax with Struts? Highlight helps you identify security issues that your applications may have before black hats get their hands on it. It verifies if the frameworks and third-party libraries contain CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) across 100K+ vulnerabilities referenced by MITRE and NIST.


Application Benchmarks

How are your applications compared to industry peers? Are your core business applications more resilient or complex than the average? Highlight benchmarks each application in your portfolio against 3000+ anonymous applications. Compare “apples to apples” using more than a dozen benchmarking dimensions (e.g. technology, application type or exposure, team skills and turnover ratio, total end-users, etc.).


Trends on Application KPIs

How do you ensure your application KPI are effectively improved? Is your software health decreasing or increasing across time?  Highlight records the evolution of each health/sizing indicator to let you know if your remediation strategy is finally paying off.
