Software Intelligence Report - Application Age

The Software Intelligence Report on Application Age looks at 2,067 applications, representing 733 million lines of code from 14 different technologies that are developed and maintained by more than 12,000 people across multiple verticals. To conduct the analysis, these applications were anonymized and scanned by CAST Highlight. The report identifies two primary outcomes of application age:

  • Older applications are far more likely to impact service continuity in the event of a production failure.
  • The shift toward Agile development teams might not be helping organizations modernize as quickly as the industry anticipated.
