Cast And Google Cloud To Jointly Speed Up Application Modernization.

By CIOReview | Thursday, April 21, 2022

CAST, the category leader in software intelligence, provides technology that generates MRI-like precision insights into the inner workings of software applications - composition, architecture, transaction flows, cloud readiness, structural defects, legal, and security issues.

FREMONT, CA: “Enterprises and software vendors are increasingly looking to take advantage of the agility, efficiency, and rich catalog of Google Cloud for complex custom-built applications, which are mostly designed for different environments and need to be modernized or refactored for cloud. Typically, there is no accurate intelligence available about their actual architecture or what needs to be changed inside,” states Marc Zablit, CAST’s Executive Vice President Business Development. CAST has entered into a new partnership with Google Cloud today to help clients worldwide expedite their migration and application modernization efforts, complementing Google's existing capabilities through the Google Cloud Application Modernization Program (CAMP).

CAST products provide visibility into the inner workings and structural state of custom-built applications, which is critical for accelerating and de-risking their cloud migration and modernization.

CAST Highlight can analyze hundreds of applications in a week to determine what needs to be changed in the source code, the amount of effort required, the best Google Cloud services, and the best migration path.

CAST Imaging then automatically reverse engineers an application's existing architecture into interactive application maps to assist architects and developers with essential modernization processes, including re-platforming, re-architecting, framework or database replacement, and separating monoliths into services.

Once in the cloud, CAST is used regularly to keep the applications agile, secure, and robust.

“Technologies that provide new ways for enterprises to analyze the inner workings of complex software applications have become increasingly important to organizations’ modernization roadmaps,” said Erwan Menard, Global Director, Infrastructure and Applications Modernization Solution Engineering at Google Cloud. “We’re pleased to partner with CAST to provide customers with the products and expertise they need to plan, accelerate and de-risk complex migrations and application modernization programs.”

Hundreds of businesses and major system integrators, including Accenture, BAH, CGI, DXC, IBM Services, Infosys, LTI, and Wipro, are already using CAST solutions to make cloud migration safer and faster.
