CAST, the pioneer and category leader in Software Intelligence, and LeanIX, whose Continuous Transformation Platform® provides companies with a range of SaaS solutions focused on Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM), SaaS Management (SMP) and Value Stream Management (VSM), today announced a strategic partnership aimed at supporting enterprise customers involved in migrating and modernizing applications to the cloud.

The combination of data captured by LeanIX EAM and source code insights provided by CAST Highlight enables clients to make more informed cloud transformation decisions, develop effective software strategies, and ultimately move their applications to the cloud faster and safer. The advanced integration of CAST Highlight with the LeanIX Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) solution gives enterprise architects easy access to this critical data. Using the CAST Connector, LeanIX customers can add CAST Highlight software intelligence insights to LeanIX workspaces and pull CAST’s world-class application insights directly into LeanIX Fact Sheets.

“CAST is delighted to partner with LeanIX on this integration,” said Vincent Delaroche, Chairman and CEO at CAST. “Enterprise architects play a key role in driving business transformation. We believe that the integration of LeanIX EAM and CAST Highlight gives them an augmented view of their application portfolios for easier, faster and safer cloud migration planning and execution.”

“The application analytics capabilities offered by CAST are unparalleled,” said André Christ, CEO and co-founder at LeanIX. “The intelligence from CAST Highlight is a critical supplement to the IT landscape data in our EAM tool. I’m thrilled to offer this new capability to our customers.”

This integration helps enterprise architects plan cloud migrations with more confidence by automatically analyzing application source code to assess cloud readiness, prioritize applications for modernization, and identify cloud migration blockers that need to be removed from application source code. The integration also extends to other use cases such as controlling open source risk and enabling smarter M&A technology due diligence.
