Telelogic Recognized for Industry Leadership in Multiple Categories on SD Times Top 100
Influential Software Development Publication Cites Telelogic Solutions for Modeling and Collaboration
MALMÖ, Sweden and IRVINE, California – May 24, 2005 – Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced that American publication SD Times, an influential software development magazine, has recognized Telelogic in two categories on its annual Top 100 listing. The publication annually ranks what it believes to be the Top 10 companies in 10 different categories related to software development. According to Alan Zeichick, editor-in-chief of SD Times, "Each year, we seek to identify the movers and shakers – not merely the biggest of the big (though such companies are nearly always influential). The companies and organizations cited in the SD Times 100 are those that we believe demonstrated the greatest amount of leadership, either through market clout or meaningful technological innovation.” Zeichick stated that a clever new tool or interesting paradigm isn’t enough to demonstrate leadership. "To lead, others must follow," he said. "We define the SD Times 100 as being those organizations, individuals or movements that were talked about, those that created not only great technology, but also great buzz." Telelogic was included on the Collaboration and SCM (Software Change Management) Top 10 where the publication noted, "Begins and ends with everyone on the same requirements page." Telelogic solutions in this category include Telelogic DOORS®, the industry's leading requirements management solution, and Telelogic SYNERGY™, the company's integrated change/configuration management suite. Telelogic was also included in the Modeling Top 10 where SD Times stated that Telelogic "Rounds out round trip engineering among models, C++ and Java code." Telelogic solutions in this category include the Telelogic TAU® suite of modeling, design, development and testing tools. Popkin Software, which was acquired by Telelogic on April 18, 2005, was also listed on the Modeling Top 10. The publication noted that Popkin "Models entire enterprise architecture, not merely software projects." "We are proud that Telelogic has been selected once again by SD Times as an industry leader and innovator," said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO of Telelogic. "Appearing in multiple categories shows the depth and breadth of our software development solutions, which have been further enhanced by our recent acquisitions of Popkin Software and tender offer for Focal Point."
