MALMO, Sweden - Telelogic AB in Malmo, Sweden, has released Telelogic Modeler, a free Unified Modeling Language (UML) design environment for engineers, designers, and developers of embedded, real-time, and enterprise IT applications.
The free Telelogic Modeler substantially increases the opportunity for organizations to increase productivity and shorten design cycles with model-driven development.
Based on technologies found in the market-leading Telelogic Rhapsody and Telelogic Tau environments, Telelogic Modeler features a comprehensive implementation of the Object Management Group’s (OMG’s) UML 2.1 standard.
Telelogic Modeler enables users to specify, visualize, and document system and software designs, including the system’s structure and intended behavior, improving team workflow and collaboration. At the push of a button, users can create a document comprising the entirety of their design’s model elements, eliminating the time-consuming task of documenting designs.
“Telelogic Modeler will benefit the software marketplace, making robust UML-based modeling available to every developer, and providing a logical path to full model-driven development,” says Chris Lanfear, director, Venture Development Corporation (VDC). “This move from Telelogic comes at a very opportune time, as developers and management search for tools that can help them manage growing complexity and meet their customer’s software needs.”
Additionally, Modeler promotes the future reuse of intellectual property by allowing designs to be migrated to Telelogic’s Rhapsody and Tau Model-Driven Development (MDD) environments.
For a fee, development teams can upgrade to Telelogic Modeler Corporate Edition, which includes interfaces to popular configuration management products, such as Telelogic Synergy, and full customer support. Telelogic Modeler is available for download at www.telelogic.com/modeling/modeler.
