CAST Imaging now features automated advice for accelerating application modernization and cloud migration

NEW YORK and PARIS, Nov. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CAST, the software intelligence leader, has announced a new capability in the latest release for CAST Imaging, the first-ever software imaging system: a suite of “Advisors” providing personalized recommendations to help companies accelerate and de-risk application modernization and cloud migration.

“CAST Imaging automatically ‘understands’ how software works, visually mapping the tens of thousands of code elements and all their relationships into a living knowledge base of the software internals, helping architects and developers quickly find what they need,” said CAST Imaging Vice President Luc Perard. “This new capability massively enhances the user experience by providing technologists with guiding beacons as they embark on significant transformations within their applications, like refactoring mainframe applications for AWS, re-platforming Oracle databases to Oracle Cloud, or replacing SQL Server and DB2 with PostgreSQL.”
