CAST has published new research which highlights the difficulties that many organizations experience when managing and maintaining the availability of legacy software. The Software Intelligence Report surveyed 500 professionals, ┬áregarding their ability to meet digital business objectives based on the overall health of their software. 

“What our research found is that enterprise IT still relies heavily on complex legacy software, and the data IT is trying to protect remains buried underneath layers and layers of legacy,” said Lev Lesokhin, EVP of Strategy and Analytics, CAST.

Key findings from the survey include:

“To remain effective, CIOs must build digital transformation roadmaps based on facts, not perceptions,” said Cristina Alvarez, former CIO of Telef├│nica. “Transforming business-critical applications is no longer a nice to have. It’s essential for CIOs to transform the core of IT to support business objectives. This can only be done with the kind of software intelligence that delivers an objective view of software assets, including its efficiency, security and robustness, to show how effective an existing portfolio will be at supporting modernization efforts.”
