CAST and Omnext bringing together Software Intelligence and Fit Test capabilities to Measure and Reduce Software Low-Code Risk

Paris and Veenendaal – 26/03/2020 - CAST, the leader in Software Intelligence, today announced a partnership with Omnext, a software company specializing in low-code software analysis to provide clients with the insights needed to continually improve the security, resiliency, and quality of their software assets.

Today’s shift to digital comes with the challenge for organizations to be able to rapidly react to their changing environments and client needs. Low-code platforms such as Mendix or OutSystems offer a way to deal with this challenge. However, the balance between speed and quality is a fragile one. Thus, software quality of low-code applications has become more important than ever for these fast-changing organizations. 

We see that these organizations are increasingly harnessing the power of low-code, which cohabitates with more traditionally built software systems. Therefore, we are excited to provide objective measurement across the business, operations and software development with Omnext’s low-code analysis, enabling faster and safer digital transformations,” said Alexandre Charlet, Managing Director of Northern Europe at CAST.

Omnext will leverage CAST’s unique Application Intelligence Platform to analyze source code in greater detail and deliver objective visibility into entire software systems comprised of both low-code and traditional languages to help clients modernize quickly and with confidence.

CAST will add insights from Omnext’s robust low-code analysis capabilities into its existing Software Intelligence offering  dubbed the ‘MRI for  software.’ The additional insights will augment CAST’s existing software analysis capabilities around analyzing application security, cloud readiness, and  enable easier in-depth system visibility on a broader range of applications.

Right from the start, it became clear that Omnext and CAST share the same DNA. We don’t just share the same point of view on software quality and risks, but also on how we aim to add value to our customers. Therefore, a collaboration felt like the most natural step to take. We see this partnership as the ideal stepping stone to further increase our position in low-code software quality analysis. In addition, a collaboration with an internationally renowned partner as CAST fits in perfectly with our international ambitions,” says Jaco de Vries, CEO of Omnext.

This partnership aims to bring a unique offer to customers who wants to get the most visibility on their portfolio regardless of technology choices. Integrating Omnext’s Low Code offering into CAST’s MRI for software will provide IT organizations with the facts needed for informed decision making, based on a holistic analysis not dependent on technologic orientations. Now, IT organizations can rely on a unique platform to modernize quickly and with confidence”.
