NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 13, 2008) - CAST, the worldwide leader in Automated Application Intelligence, will host a seminar on November 21st, 2008 in Paris, France, where IT executives and thought leaders will be sharing proactive solutions to managing the IT risk exposure to key business processes. The seminar, titled "Reducing IT Risk through Better Quality," will highlight how IT leaders are working to shield the business from the impact of a leaner approach to IT and how a focused approach to managing the software quality, especially in mission-critical applications, plays into that strategy.

The CIO Seminar features top IT Executives from France Telecom, PMU Off-track Betting, National Agency for Employment, Cofinoga Consumer Credit and MMA Insurance, who will share the processes they have implemented to manage the development and evolution of their strategic applications.

Top executives of several IT services companies, including CSC, Capgemini, IBM and Atos Origin, will be on hand to discuss the role of software quality and client/supplier transparency in de-risking low cost outsourcing. Experts in business IT management such as Bill Curtis, co-author of CMM, Jean-Pierre Corniou, former CIO of Renault and Jérôme David, partner at TPI, will provide their thoughts and recommendations on management best practices. Journalists from several major European business IT publications are also planning to attend.
