Telelogic Delivers Enhanced Lifecycle Solutions that Accelerate Business Value from Systems and Software Development
New synchronized release of integrated ALM solutions
MALMÖ, Sweden and IRVINE, California – 23 May 2005 – Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced the forthcoming synchronized release of its integrated ALM (Automated Lifecycle Management) solutions. Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions, comprising new releases of Telelogic DOORS® (market-leading requirements management), Telelogic SYNERGY™ (award-winning change & configuration management) and Telelogic TAU® (industry-leading model-driven development), provide truly role-based support for unparalleled collaboration throughout the development lifecycle. With Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions, development organizations can improve quality through better inter-team communication, increase predictability through higher maturity development processes and generate business value faster. These latest releases deliver: • Information where you need it, when you need it – collaboration throughout the systems and software development lifecycle is improved and adoption of ALM solutions has a shorter learning curve through unrivalled role-based ALM integrations. The integrations delivered by Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions provide analysts, systems engineers, software architects, developers, testers, quality engineers, build managers and project managers with easy access to all the information they require without the need to switch tools. • Lower cost of ownership – simpler deployment and administration of ALM solutions is facilitated by a single master installer, a common licensing mechanism, common user administration and automatic installation of integrations. • The tools you need, when you need them – projects have different usage levels of different tools at different stages of the development lifecycle. Telelogic’s innovative Token-Based licensing delivers the flexibility for organizations to be a click away from all of the tools comprising Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions. Customers are now able to access the right number of licenses of each lifecycle tool for the current stage of the project. “Together with the market leading enterprise architecture modeling solutions gained through the recent acquisition of Popkin Software, this release delivers on Telelogic’s strategy to improve its ALM offering to our customers through development and acquisition,” said Ingemar Ljungdahl, chief technology officer at Telelogic. “And with the recently announced partnership with PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) vendor MatrixOne, Telelogic also delivers on its intent to expand and redefine the boundaries of what the market can expect from ALM solutions.” Telelogic Lifecycle Solutions provide unmatched automated support for improving systems and software development processes, including: • Requirements-Driven Development – ensures that architects, designers and developers work to the same business, market, compliance and customer goals. The ability of team members, regardless of discipline, to validate their architecture, design or development tasks in relation to the requirements results in significant productivity and quality benefits: no resources are wasted on unnecessary work, and no requirement is overlooked. • Requirements-Driven Testing – enables test teams to develop tests against current requirements. This approach delivers higher quality results, as test teams validate that the system, software or product performs as required rather than only validating that it functions. • Task-Based Implementation Management – provides a workflow driven by logical changes that would usually span multiple source code files or design models and improves software quality through a configuration management system that detects whether software builds have complete and consistent sets of changes. • Lifecycle Change Management – extends Change Management to cover all phases of the development lifecycle and all development artifacts - from requirements, to design, to code, to test scripts. This enables organizations to unite customers, analysts, management and project teams by following a customer-focused development process and provides a powerful solution for improving communication and collaboration across the entire project team. Customer Comments “Originally we selected Telelogic because of the quality and usability of its specific tools,” said Gert Jan Troost, global projects director, System Integration, LogicaCMG. “All the tools we are using meet and exceed the level of Telelogic’s competitors. More additional value is now coming from the combination of the tools. The total product suite helps us to perform better. I haven’t seen any suite on the market comparable to Telelogic’s solution.” “Our Freightliner truck, set for release in 2007, has more than 200 features with complex requirements for each one,” said Arno von Querfurth, manager of specifications and software systems, DaimlerChrysler. “Tracing all of these features back to the requirements, and re-using them for common components, would be extremely difficult to do without DOORS.” “All of our key business challenges were addressed and met with SYNERGY,” said Michael Steder, responsible for change and configuration management at the Information Technology Center, Volkswagen. “Having the SYNERGY suite with proper workflow and processes in place has significantly improved the quality of IT services.” “Telelogic’s tools allow us to minimize programmers’ time and effort for producing code,” said Alexander Karnyukhin, managing director, AM Telecom. “We can now concentrate on developing the best possible software quickly and effectively.” Analyst Comments “Businesses are seeking to gain greater business value by improving the efficiencies of their IT infrastructure and development lifecycles,” said Jim Duggan, research vice president at Gartner Inc. “Automated lifecycle management solutions that reduce costs and improve information exchange and linking between the analysis, design, development and test teams will help organizations to realize this aim and ease the pain of regulatory compliance through increased visibility and traceability throughout the development lifecycle.” “In addition to improving collaboration throughout the development lifecycle, companies are looking for closer alignment of their IT strategy and product development roadmaps with their business objectives and customer needs,” said Bola Rotibi senior analyst, application lifecycle management at Ovum. “They need lifecycle solutions that enable comprehensive understanding of current and future needs of the business and its customers. Telelogic, with these latest integrated releases that link development teams, and their newly acquired enterprise architecture and business process modeling solutions, are well placed to take ALM solutions to the next level.” Availability and Platform Support From 17 June 2005, new releases will be available for: Telelogic DOORS, Telelogic DOORS/Analyst™, Telelogic SYNERGY/Change, Telelogic SYNERGY/CM, Telelogic TAU G2 and Telelogic DocExpress®. These products are supported on many Windows, Unix and Linux operating system versions .For details please visit www.telelogic.com.
