Telelogic CM Synergy(TM) Named Leading Application Change Management Tool by Yphise - CM Synergy Achieves Number One Ranking in Distributed Environments with Task-Driven Change Management - MALMÖ, Sweden and IRVINE, California - January 7, 2003 - Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced that Telelogic CM Synergy(TM), the company's state-of-the-art task-based change management solution, was named a market leader based on technical merit and extensive customer feedback by influential French industry analyst firm Yphise, Paris, in its latest report "Application Change Management Software." The report evaluated the performance of six application change management tools from different vendors against five key criteria: (1) Controlling the heterogeneity of technology; (2) Defining and managing the change cycle; (3) Meeting the organization requirements; (4) Controlling the application complexity; (5) Overall responsiveness to the change requests. After an exhaustive evaluation, CM Synergy delivered exceptional performance in three of the five categories. "Telelogic CM Synergy comes in first among the six change management software products assessed," said Laurent Mynard, analyst at Yphise. "The evaluation determined that CM Synergy demonstrated a clear differentiating comparative advantage. It is a market leader in this category and the most mature product with the broadest set of rich features that facilitate the development and maintenance of applications. "The increasing complexity of architectures and applications make them more and more difficult to control. Combined with the growth of distributed teams and outsourcing, IT departments need software tools with the robust qualities and flexibility demonstrated by CM Synergy in this analysis to efficiently manage application changes." Yphise is the only analyst firm to publish comparative studies based on ISO 9001- certified assessment process. "Within one month's time, Yphise has recognized first DOORS and now CM Synergy as best in breed products based upon technical merit and the outspoken feedback from our users," said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO at Telelogic. "We're gratified that a prestigious and internationally-recognized analyst organization such as Yphise confirms our strategy of designing tools that help development teams work faster and easier by bringing simplicity and efficiency to developers and managers alike. Telelogic will continue to evolve, strengthen and integrate its product line, always seeking new and better ways to make our customers' operations more efficient and profitable." According to the Yphise report, CM Synergy stands out in three of the five categories for the following reasons: * CM Synergy stands out in "Controlling the heterogeneity of technology", because it manages the various asset types richly. It automates the type definition not only according to file extension or location, but also according to file content. It makes it possible to customize access to every type, with specific dedicated editing, comparison or building tools. * CM Synergy stands out in "Meeting the organization requirements", because of its rich interfaces with third-party tools. It also stands out thanks to ActiveCM(TM), which helps use the application change management transparently. * CM Synergy stands out in "Overall responsiveness to the change requests", because it manages change requests through proprietary functions or interfaces with third-party tools. CM Synergy is suitable if change requests have various sources. "Application change management tools meet the requirements of efficient development and industrialization," said Yphise analyst Mynard. "They manage the versions, configurations and life cycle of the assets and applications and must interface with multiple software families and environments such as defect tracking, requirements management tools, UML design tools, integrated development environments (IDE), and test campaign tools. The importance of change management software to an organization's competitiveness and profitability can not be underestimated."
