Refactoring during Cloud migrations millions of lines of code created over decades requires deep understanding of the software architecture, its components and interdependencies.
The typical lack of documentation and absence of developers with legacy knowledge bogs down architects and development teams. They often resort to trial-and-error methods for refactoring, taking wrong turns and inadvertently introducing production defects affecting the business.
CAST Imaging reverse engineers and automatically ‘understands’ software systems built with any mix of 3GL, 4GL, Mobile, Web, Middleware, Framework, Database, Mainframe technologies.
It creates accurate, zoomable architecture blueprints of all database structures, code components, and their interdependencies. Down to the slightest details. You can see the transaction flows and tag the components using functional knowledge from the application users.
Easily explore Software Architectures to the tiniest detail.
IN REAL TIME.
Automatically understand the technology stack, as well as all interdependencies between code components, application layers, frameworks, technologies, databases. Identify obsolete technologies and frameworks that are good candidates for decommissioning and see inside the software system with MRI-like precision.
Quickly reverse engineer API Call Graphs.
Automatically identify API routes with tight dependencies between them (hard to separate) and flows with low dependencies (to be considered for separation), a necessary consideration for ensuring scalability and deployment flexibility of the modernized application.
Auto discover potential candidates for De-coupling.
Quickly identify the artefacts (horizontal layer) contributing to functional communities. Automatically identify communities tightly coupled and with low modularity (hard to separate) and communities with low coupling that could be isolated with minimal effort.
Understand functional relevance of technical elements.
IN REAL TIME.
You can tag modules discovered by CAST Imaging according to their functional and/or technical relevance. For example, you can tag all modules that comprise a transaction and all modules slated for de-coupling and immediately see the intersection.
