"Using CAST Highlight with Tidal Migrations was a breeze"

What do you like best?

The ability to assess my client's entire application portfolio of custom software as well as COTS, side by side in one platform, really made our cloud migration smooth.

With CAST Highlight we were able to identify the low-hanging-fruit for cloud native transformation within the Tidal Migrations platform, and then dig deeper into specific areas of the codebases where we would need to focus on to be successful.

What do you dislike?

It didn't come in blue, and I like blue. There's really nothing negative about this solution as it's really the only solution to this otherwise intractable problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a free trial and show a screenshot to your engineering manager or cloud migration lead. They'll get it right away, and be shocked that this existed 9 times out of 10.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CAST Highlight lets us use data to make decisions.

Previously, we would spend hours and weeks working with clients in meetings and workshops to identify which applications to take to cloud, and how. Now we are able to apply software analysis to the problem, distilling our application portfolio down to a series of easy to understand software engineering metrics that are difficult to challenge.

This takes all the emotion out of the cloud journey and LETS YOU GET ON WITH IT.

"Highlight ticked many boxes for our clients Digital and Delivery transformation"

What do you like best?

HL played a role not only in quickly providing us with an objective assessment of the portfolio we were looking to transform but through its CVE analysis brought to our attention certain risks we were not aware of at the time. The insights that surfaced after running the analysis significantly sped up our focus areas , decision making processes and we are actively using HL to monitor and trend the progress of a rationalization initiative and migration to the cloud of key apps. For the price HL offers tremendous value and the speed at which you get detail is excellent.

What do you dislike?

so far we have not found much to dislike, the Highlight guys are constantly adding new features and expanding the offering which is keeping us on our toes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The cloud readiness index is hugely powerful and unique to HL . Try and it for your clients in support of their cloud migration initiatives it will provide an excellent baseline assessment and starting point from which to plan and monitor which has been a key differentiator for us.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we have used HL to identify a key set of portfolio rationalization initiatives and are running it on our clients cloud migration projects as well as monitoring progress. Now looking to explore the use of the agile analytics feature to provide an objective view on comparable team delivery. our most note-able benefits to date have been the quick turn around of analysis and insight at a portfolio level which has greatly focused and sped up decision making on strategic initiatives.
