CAST code analysis technology is geared towards solving two fundamental problems. The first is that most modern IT systems are comprised of thousands of components, built by multiple teams and dozens of developers. Measuring the software quality across these systems requires careful calibration across multiple technologies, releases and clear identification of application boundaries. The second issue is that the most insidious and dangerous defects come from the interactions between components of a complex system - that cannot be detected by code analysis tools deployed at the individual developer level.
CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) is an enterprise-grade software measurement and quality analysis solution designed to analyze multi-tiered, multi-technology applications for technical vulnerabilities and adherence to architectural and coding standards and then provide business relevant information to the IT organization through various dashboards and products built with end users in mind.
