CAST Adds Orion to Highlight Partner Program, Bringing Business Intelligence to IT Rationalization and Digital Transformation
New York – Nov. 1, 2016 – CAST, a world leader in software analysis and measurement, today announced that Orion has joined the Highlight Partner Program to guide CIOs and heads of IT as they pursue IT rationalization and digital transformation. Orion is a leader in IT-Business Intelligence and contextual visualizations that enable technology leaders to make judicious decisions that promote business goals.
Orion’s iConstellation Platform uncovers complex asset interdependencies through visual representations and deep analysis of IT asset data to surface actionable information in an integrated model. CAST Highlight illuminates the true health of application portfolios so IT leaders can make intelligent decisions about digital transformation with software risk and customer experience in mind.
“CIOs are under increasing pressure from the business to be more agile, transparent and strategic, however they often lack the proper information and tools to respond,” said Asim Akram, Co-CEO and President, Orion. “We are excited to pair our expertise in IT-Business Intelligence with Highlight’s fast software analysis to give executives the complete information they need to make smart decisions about modernizing IT portfolios.”
The CAST Highlight and Orion partnership simplifies:
- Digital Transformation
- Cloud Readiness and Migration
- IT Governance and Risk Management
- IT Portfolio Governance and Rationalization
“It is impossible for CIOs to make intelligent decisions if important data is hidden behind system complexity. CAST analysis makes the invisible visible by providing clear, contextual analysis that sheds light on intrinsic characteristics of business-critical systems,” said Jeff Fraleigh, Global Head for CAST Highlight. “Combining this powerful contextual analysis with business intelligence in a visual way is the holy grail for IT leaders looking to justify technology investments and map IT objectives to business demands.”
