Application Portfolio Management (APM) initiatives strive to inventory lots of information about an application, collecting information about release dates, owners and business users. APM does a great job of documenting the application’s relationship to other layers in the business, but it misses one critical capability – it doesn’t look inside the box. APM can tell you the impact of change for a given application, but it doesn’t provide any objective metrics on the application itself – like risk of failure, upgrade difficulties or recommended maintenance effort – until now.
CAST Highlight provides a smart integration with your current APM practice.
CAST Highlight adds objective metrics to existing APM initiatives, supplying fact-based data on application risks, complexity and costs. It was built to complement existing APM programs, easily exporting this objective information for consumption by a variety of tools. Objective metrics around production risk and application complexity can now be viewed directly in your APM solution, providing answers to a new level of impact analysis questions. Add to that metric-driven costs on software maintenance and technical debt, and you now have unparalleled visibility across the portfolio.
Secure/Defend agility & scalability by monitoring software complexity and adaptability risk metrics.
