Generali Deutschland Informatik Services GmbH Selects CAST to Improve Code
Quality and Productivity

MUNICH, Germany, 2016-05-10 09:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
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.”
