Telelogic has released Telelogic Modeler, a free Unified Modeling Language (UML) design environment for engineers, designers and developers of embedded, real-time and enterprise IT applications. According to the company, the free Telelogic Modeler substantially increases the opportunity for organizations to start to increase productivity and shorten design cycles with Model-Driven Development.Telelogic Modeler promises a comprehensive implementation of the Object Management Group\u2019s (OMG) UML 2.1 standard, says the company. Telelogic Modeler enables users to specify, visualize, and document system and software designs, including the system\u2019s structure and intended behavior, greatly improving team workflow and collaboration. At the push of a button, users can create a document comprising the entirety of their design\u2019s model elements, eliminating the time-consuming and error-prone task of documenting designs.Users can easily customize the software to accommodate their domain-specific terminology, claims the firm. Designs created in Modeler can be migrated to Telelogic\u2019s Rhapsody and Tau Model-Driven Development environments.\u2014Esther SchindlerCheck out our CIO News Alerts and Tech Informer pages for more updated news coverage.
