CAST and IBM Rational Discuss "Metrics That Matter"

Rational User Group Hosts Webinar on Managing the Quality of Your App Dev

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - CAST, the worldwide leader in Automated Application Intelligence, and the Rational User Group will co-host a webinar entitled "Metrics that Matter: The Business Imperative of Application Software Quality" which aims to increase the manager's level of visibility into the quality of their most important applications through Key Performance Indicators and enable fact-based sourcing decisions.

Good decisions rely on accurate information. Without knowing where the greatest risks to critical applications lie, decisions can only be made based on "best guess" analysis. Metrics are needed to analyze and track the quality of the IT software product, guiding development and supporting resource allocation.

The presenters will be:

--  Phil Vogel, Market Manager of IBM Rational Project and Portfolio
    Management
--  Dr. Bill Curtis, SVP and Chief Scientist of CAST Software
