% of global greenhouse gas emissions
Green Software Foundation Report, 2022
As data center emissions continue to soar, green software development is emerging as the next logical step for enterprises globally to make their technology more sustainable and meet emerging regulatory requirements.
Building green software delivers additional benefits including:
Overwhelming complexity makes it hard to see what software changes are needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrate continuous improvement.
Finding and remediating green deficiencies, source code patterns that drive excessive use of resources, helps organizations reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by their custom-built applications.
For example, an application using SQL queries inside a loop consumes more CPU cycles (energy) than one where the loop logic is coded inside the query.
CAST technology automatically extracts this type of intelligence from the source code and suggests how to make it more sustainable.
Automatically derived scores at both portfolio and application levels, with trends over time
Patterns found in the source code that contribute to excess use of resources / energy, with suggested remediation and effort estimates
Estimates on the potential reduction in CO2 emissions and energy consumption if Green Deficiencies are fixed
Prioritized actions across all applications, including quick wins and actions with the biggest impact
