"Our future focus is providing tools to assist in the development of internet-enabled intelligent communication devices," said Anders Lidbeck, CEO of Telelogic. "Our customers have a need for a robust UML-compliant modeling and code generation solution that is capable of supporting very large teams and complex projects. We evaluated several alternatives and found Sterling Software's COOL:Jex to be the most comprehensive, stable, and effective solution available." "One of the most important aspects of the Sterling Software solution is its ability to be highly customized and integrated into the other parts of our Telelogic Tau product portfolio," Lidbeck added. "The combination of our COOL:Jex technology with Telelogic's other products represents an unbeatable solution in today's rapidly developing real time and embedded systems marketplace, said Mark Theel, president of the Sterling Software Application Development Group. "These markets are undergoing significant changes, driven by wider acceptance of e-business, the internet, the role of embedded systems, and the rise of internet appliances. We see this partnership as an important opportunity to expand the usage of the COOL:Jex technology in these strategic markets and position Sterling Software to take advantage of these emerging opportunities."
