When working with Agile, you need to control architecture, satisfy non-functional requirements, and reduce technical debt in short iterations. In this paper find out how the CAST AIP can be incorporated into a continuous integration environment to evaluate if newly integrated components violate rules of good architectural and coding practice affecting security, robustness, changeability, performance efficiency, and maintainability; adhere to the application’s architectural rules; and have structural problems that create technical debt.
Project managers need to ensure an application isn’t just delivered on time, but that it is stable, flexible and secure. CAST helps project managers ensure that development teams are following industry and internal coding best practices, architectural standards and designs, and documents development activity.
Operationalization of CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) through Continuous Improvement Model (CIM) is a proven, repeatable and successful approach to rolling out CAST AIP. CIM is a full cycle of implementation, adoption, consumption and improvement that ensures client’s success through proper use and adoption of CAST.
Application architecture is required to ensure the structural integrity of an application portfolio, but it can seem impossible to ensure adherence to these standards. CAST changes all of that by automatically analyzing applications across all tiers and languages to provide Architects with the actionable metrics and information needed to assess the how well the architectural designs, rules and standards have been followed.
With CAST, the process of integrating and adapting Oracle applications becomes more automated with complete and accurate knowledge of the applications’ inner structure. IT teams no longer need to manually reverse-engineer their source code and can instead focus on quickly adapting them to company-specific needs.
An organization can achieve transparency over application quality for outsourced Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) with assessments from CAST. You gain objective measurement to monitor compliance with development best practices and architectural guidelines, reducing risk and increasing transferability between teams.
Many organizations manage huge portfolios of custom applications on top of SAP. A number of them are mission-critical so it is vital to preserve or enhance the quality, robustness, maintainability and performance of these applications, whether developed in ABAP, Java or other languages, to reduce application maintenance costs and better manage outsourced development and maintenance.
Modern mission-critical applications are multi-platform, multi-language and multi-sourced. CAST AIP gives you the comprehensive visibility and control needed to achieve significantly more business productivity from complex applications with an objective and repeatable way to measure and improve the application software quality.
The aim of this document is to describe CAST AIP’s current support and future roadmap for OWASP Top Ten 2013 (the document applies the very same way to OWASP Top Ten 2007).
CAST Strategy for the on-going support of OWASP Top Ten is to provide users with the means to check that valid protection is in place and whenever possible to provide development teams detect places where vulnerability is left in the code.
