Partnership Creates Mutual Access to Industry-Leading Approaches and Technologies in the Field of Software Transformation
BOSTON—The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) today announced its intent to enter into a strategic partnership with CAST in order to better address software-related IT issues impacting businesses. CAST’s software-analysis capabilities will complement BCG’s leading approaches for managing software environments and software delivery transformation.
The CAST platform will allow BCG to bring unique and extensive capabilities to the clients of its Technology Advantage practice. Through automated software analysis and benchmarking, BCG teams have improved their ability to objectively qualify and quantify the risk inherent in application environments and individual platforms using standardized metrics. Additionally, the platform will measure risk-adjusted productivity to enable safe and successful agile, sourcing, and digital transformation.
With this partnership, BCG moves its software-technology offerings into the next phase, enhancing its ability to provide essential information to clients looking to modernize their software environment and delivery capability.
“Software is a critical component in the business world. Increases in the efficiency and effectiveness of software development and the minimization of risks in software environments remain high on every CIO’s agenda,” said Ralf Dreischmeier, a BCG senior partner and the global leader of the Technology Advantage practice. “Partnering with CAST to implement this automated software-analysis technology will bring enhanced technical depth to BCG. We’re excited about the possibility of offering this industry-leading analytical tool to our clients.”
“CAST is very excited to be working with BCG to provide enterprises superior intelligence about the software that underpins their digital business,” said Vincent Delaroche, CEO of CAST. “There is growing need for meaningful software analytics for IT and business executives and this partnership is uniquely positioned to accelerate our value delivery to clients and extend our market leadership.”
CAST is the market leader in software analysis and measurement, and its products meet all current requirements of the Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) and Object Management Group (OMG).
