to implement CAST's Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) in order to
achieve an unrivalled level of risk adjusted productivity measurement that

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.
