SAN DIEGO and CHELTENHAM, England, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Atego provides a highly scalable, web based, system and software engineering asset repository, enabling publication, discovery and reuse.

Atego Asset Library - Communication Platform

Atego™, the leading independent supplier of collaborative development tools for engineering complex, mission- and safety-critical systems and software, has launched Atego Asset Library, a ground breaking repository, enabling large-scale system and software engineering asset publication and reuse.

"The launch of Atego Asset Library is a significant extension to Atego's strategic product portfolio, helping our customers design and build Component Based, Service Oriented and modular Systems of Systems," said Hedley Apperly, Vice-President of Product and Marketing at Atego. "Atego Asset Library enables top-down, architected modular engineering, bottom-up artifact mining and middle-out asset reuse."

Atego Asset Library dramatically simplifies asset publication, management and reuse. Based on the OMG's Reusable Asset Specification (RAS), the underlying database is intentionally generalist, making it suitable for all types of project assets.  Atego Asset Library then extends RAS to provide dedicated features for systems and software component & service publication, as well as seamless integration with UML & SysML for component and service based design.

"The OMG's goal is to provide a vendor-neutral platform for driving standards such as the Reusable Asset Specification (RAS)," commented Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., chairman and CEO, OMG. "We are excited by Atego's implementation of the OMG RAS, enabling system & software asset reuse, particularly at 'design time' with UML and SysML.  This is yet more evidence of OMG standards improving engineering productivity."

Atego Asset Library is a true enabler for enterprise scale asset reuse. It's simple, secure and powerful user interface publishes assets, over the web, to anyone who needs them. Asset meta-data, traceable links and management dashboards reduce the levels of complexity, help you plan for change, and prove real returns on your investments.

"Bloor believes that an Intelligent Asset Library should be under consideration by any organization building complex systems or software" said David Norfolk, Practice Leader at Bloor Research. "The time is now ripe for the introduction of standards-based re-usable asset libraries, with realistic aspirations and oriented towards systems-engineering principles. Atego Asset Library is such a product and Bloor expects it to do well."
