ARMONK, NY - 20 May 2008: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that it will extend support for defense industry standards through new capabilities in its Telelogic portfolio of offerings for defense agencies, contractors and system integrators. The enhancements announced today will offer a seamless transition from ‘system of systems’ enterprise architecture through systems engineering and software development for both information systems and real-time and embedded applications. These offerings help users to collaborate on architecture and embedded systems projects as well as address high levels of complexity.
Three new major enhancements highlight this announcement:
· An interface between Telelogic Rhapsody® and Telelogic System Architect ® that optimizes workflow from high-level missions, strategies and operations to detailed embedded systems and real-time software development. Users can easily transfer model information between the two repositories and more closely align development of embedded and real-time systems with defense missions and strategies.
· Integrated support for net-centric operations (NCO) in Telelogic Rhapsody helps users capture detailed information for net-centric systems directly within a model and meet key requirements for compliance. Rhapsody Net-Centric Systems Pack is designed for systems that have an embedded or real-time constraint, such as complex sensors or war-fighting nodes, or technical applications that communicate with embedded systems, such as complex control systems.
· Integrated support for the Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF) in Telelogic Rhapsody. This interface supports the MODAF standard during modeling, simulation, testing and code generation of embedded and real-time systems.
IBM’s Telelogic portfolio is applicable to net-centric environments and service-oriented architecture (SOA), and represents the industry’s broadest suite of products for designing and developing these systems and applications. Telelogic System Architect provides users with a high-level, enterprise architecture perspective. When Telelogic Tau®for enterprise IT and defense information systems development is added, users have a comprehensive development environment for net-centric operations and warfare. Telelogic Rhapsody offers integrated development support for net-centric defense applications that are real-time and embedded using a SOA approach. Telelogic DOORS® can also be incorporated to add requirements management to any SOA or net-centric project. Telelogic Change™ and Telelogic Synergy™, for change and software configuration management, support both the Rhapsody and Tau model-driven development environments.
“As the defense community evolves toward a network-enabled environment, our customers need access to the most advanced capabilities for modeling their operations and real-time and embedded systems,” said Greg Sikes, Executive Vice President, Modeling Solutions Product Division, Telelogic, An IBM Company. “Rhapsody, Tau and System Architect support the U.S. Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF). Rhapsody and System Architect support the U.K. Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF). System Architect also supports other defense frameworks, including the NATO Architecture Framework. Our strong portfolio of integrated defense solutions underlines our ongoing commitment to deliver a complete agency-through-deployment lifecycle that streamlines the implementation of defense-related architecture and modeling initiatives.”
The System Architect/Rhapsody interface, Rhapsody MODAF pack, and Rhapsody Net-Centric Systems Pack will all be available in the third quarter of 2008.
