CAST Selected by GDIS to Enhance Code Quality and Productivity

Infrastructure

CAST, the global leader in software analysis and measurement, today announced its engagement with Generali Deutschland Informatik Services GmbH (GDIS), the IT provider of Generali in Germany, the second-largest primary insurance group in the German market. The engagement will address the need to automate the process of analysing its software quality.

With over 750 employees, turning over around € 325 million, GDIS is one of the leading developers of IT systems in Germany. Core competencies in the stable and cost-effective operation of a multi-platform infrastructure and the development of efficient and innovative IT applications emphasises the importance of software quality.

Having already used manual Function Point analysis, a standard measure estimating the effort required to produce specific software quality, GDIS decided to scale up the program using an automated solution. GDIS has started to implement CAST’s Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) in order to achieve an unrivalled level of risk adjusted productivity measurement that covers their seven most important applications, with about 250 software developers.

“By implementing CAST’s Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) we found a unique solution to monitor the quality and outcome (quantity) of our most important business systems. Using OMG’s ‘Automated Function Points’ (AFP) standard gives us a clearer insight on IT development productivity, and a more complete view of cost and quality. This will support us to deliver even better quality applications, faster, and at lower cost, enabling us to improve customer satisfaction, flexibility and time-to-market”, said Joachim Schwartz, head of Architecture and Test Management, at GDIS.

Commenting on the new engagement, Gregg Blatt, EVP of Field Operations at CAST, adds: “Working with one of the leading IT providers in Germany allows for this level of IT intelligence to be an advantage amongst the competition. Utilising CAST AIP to measure the productivity of its core applications results in an improved level of IT performance, which in turn will result in a more reliable and efficient IT service offered to its customers.”
