Microsoft Professional Developers Conference
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 28, 2003
Premier Visual Studio Industry Program Partner Releases First
Asset Discovery Engine for Millions of Developers Using the Microsoft
.NET Framework to Consolidate, Migrate and Integrate Applications
LogicLibrary(TM), the leading provider of software asset management tools, today shipped Logidex for .NET. For the first time, software architects, business analysts and developers using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 can quickly search a centralized library of software development assets (SDAs) to identify those that best match their business and technical requirements for Microsoft .NET Framework-based application development.
In addition, LogicLibrary today announced its plans to integrate with the Microsoft Visual Studio "Whidbey" release. Specifically, the company commits to developing an add-in for Visual Studio "Whidbey" and to leveraging Whidbey's enhancements for enterprise development teams, thereby enabling organizations to more easily represent and consume the complex application and SDA relationships inherent in service-oriented applications.
Logidex allows enterprises to map relationships among Microsoft .NET Framework SDAs, their business process and technical models, and their applications, components, XML schemas, documentation and other key software and knowledge assets that span the application development lifecycle. Pre-loaded .NET Framework assets, directly from Microsoft's Platform Architectural Guidance (PAG) Group, include Enterprise Solution Patterns, Application Blocks, and Reference Applications and Architectures. Logidex's unique graphical discovery engine allows business analysts, developers and architects to easily collaborate on building Windows-based applications and XML Web services--from within the Visual Studio .NET 2003 development environment.
"It's an exciting time for Microsoft and its Visual Studio Industry Program partners such as LogicLibrary," said Dan'l Lewin, corporate vice president for Microsoft .NET Business Development at Microsoft Corp. "LogicLibrary's Logidex is tightly integrated with Visual Studio .NET, contains preloaded patterns and practices, and runs natively on the Microsoft platform. It's a powerful solution for Visual Studio .NET developers and architects as their organizations embrace and extend .NET Framework-based application development and integration across the enterprise."
Also announced today is the ability for Visual Studio .NET developers to scan a comprehensive list of Microsoft-defined .NET Framework software assets and perform model-based searches of the library on MSDN at http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/logidex.
"Working very closely with Microsoft, LogicLibrary has delivered a tightly integrated SDA management tool for Visual Studio .NET and has announced support for Visual Studio 'Whidbey,' enabling millions of Microsoft developers to embrace the productivity and cost savings of a centralized SDA library directly from within their Microsoft development environment - now and in the future," said Greg Coticchia, president and CEO of LogicLibrary. "Together with Microsoft, we are successfully delivering a vital starting point for enterprise architects, business analysts and developers as they undertake development of XML Web services and Windows applications."
"Logidex for .NET will help us ensure that technical capabilities support our business requirements," said Guy Russo, CIO of CommunityAmerica Credit Union. "With preloaded .NET content and an add-in for Visual Studio .NET, Logidex provides a potent starting point for developing applications for the Microsoft Windows platform. Logidex for .NET also gives us an efficient way to manage the entire lifecycle of vital software development assets."
"Enterprises can substantially improve applications development productivity and quality, while also decreasing time-to-market, by a factor of five to one or more through a committed software asset reuse program," said Michael Blechar, vice president and research director of Gartner. "At the heart of this initiative must be the ability for analysts and developers to easily locate and reuse these assets."
