SOMERS, NY - 31 Jan 2006: Building on IBM's initiative to help organizations govern their software and systems development, IBM today launched new software designed to help systems engineers manage their development environment and more easily comply with industry-specific regulations.

Built on Eclipse, IBM Rational Systems Developer helps organizations trace industry-specific regulatory requirements from design to implementation. With its support for the Rational software portfolio, Rational Systems Developer enables engineers to manage their software development process more comprehensively and integrate compliance mandates into the process automatically.

For example, in the defense space, Rational Systems Developer helps systems engineers comply with mandatory defense systems requirements -- the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) -- by providing standardized views and reports on the system architecture. Rational Systems Developer is also able to create a visual model of a system's software design and can automatically generate code from the design, thereby saving time and increasing accuracy in future projects. Other compliance and standards initiatives primed to take advantage of Rational Systems Developer include AUTOSAR, DoD5000 and Navy Open Architecture certification and accreditation processes.

Other key benefits include:

"IBM is uniquely poised to connect multiple development teams through a secured, distributed environment," said Danny Sabbah, general manager, Rational Software, IBM Software Group. "Systems engineers rely on the IBM Rational Software Development Platform to collaborate and govern their overall software development process."
