Application lifecycle management tools purveyor Telelogic AB announced it will be an early committer to the Eclipse Process Framework (EPF), the open source process design tool and process library.
Telelogic said it brings an extensive library of best practices accumulated over the last 20 years in areas such as requirements-driven development, Model Driven Architecture, MDA, enterprise change management, and systems and software development.
As an early committer, we are pleased to be involved at the inception of this project and to share some of our best practices, said Bill Shaw, senior vice president of Common Technologies, Telelogic. Open source development processes will clearly have a large impact on the systems and software development community, and Telelogic has a broad range of expertise to help them evolve.
Of course the company is hoping that it will still be able to sell tools and services at a higher level than EPF.
This is another step forward in our Enterprise Lifecycle Management (ELM) strategy to deliver solutions for automating and supporting best practices across the enterprise, said Ingemar Ljungdahl, Telelogic CTO. Organizations will benefit from the additional value of Telelogic’s robust process extensions and automation that make processes across the lifecycle scaleable and actionable on real projects.
The company’s Chris Sibbald, senior systems engineer, lifecycle solutions, and Kurt Sand, solutions manager, were both voted in as committers at the end of February. Telelogic is a welcome addition to the EPF project, said Per Kroll, Eclipse Process Framework project lead. It is great to have industry leaders with the system and software development experience of Telelogic joining the team.
