This wide-spread market interest combined with Telelogic’s MDD experience and perspective and BigLever’s SPL expertise and new generation methods created just the right confluence of ideas and demand to drive the convergence of MDD and SPL. This partnership will allow Telelogic and BigLever to deliver a leading-edge solution uniquely designed to embrace MDD as an integral part of SPL practice.”

With this integration, development organizations can achieve significant productivity gains and heightened efficiency from utilizing: 1) Rhapsody MDD models, rather than working with traditional source code, and 2) Gears’ SPL consolidation and automated production capabilities, rather than creating cloned copies of MDD models for each product or building “one-size-fits-all” software for all products. This new level of efficiency enables companies to deliver more new products faster, while reducing the development effort and optimizing product quality.
