MEGA International Announces Integration with Telelogic to Manage Collaborative Software Development Processes

Integration Empowers Multi-User Development Teams Delivering Complex and

Frequently Evolving Information Systems

    WALTHAM, Mass., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- MEGA
 International announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with
 Telelogic North America (Stockholm Stock Exchange: TLOG), a leading global
 provider of solutions for advanced software and systems development, that will
 expand its product integration, co-marketing efforts and sales coordination.
     The integration between MEGA Suite, a repository-based analysis and design
 solution for enterprise application integration (EAI) and software development
 projects, and Telelogic CM Synergy, a task-based change management solution,
 has created the only integrated software development infrastructure providing
 configuration management for generated source code.
     "This is the only off-the-shelf solution that facilitates collaboration by
 one or more teams of any size by coordinating complex and frequently changing
 elements in business process, IS architecture and the development process,"
 said Giuseppe Perrone, vice president of business development at MEGA
 International.  "Together we have produced an integration that defines the
 ultimate level of team collaboration and parallel development.  While the
 competition focuses more on single users, this integration really fills a void
 by addressing the needs for multi-user development and provides customers with
 a more robust and cost-effective infrastructure."
     For development teams delivering more and more complex and frequently
 evolving information systems, the MEGA Suite and CM Synergy integration
 provides a complete infrastructure for managing collaborative software
 development processes (ISO, UML, CMM, etc.) from visual analysis and design to
 code generation and development (C++, Java, XML, Visual Basic, Delphi, etc.).
 The integration also provides team collaboration continuity on all phases of
 the development process including analysis, design, generation, development
 and integration.  It is the only integrated software development
 infrastructure providing configuration management for generated source code.
 
     Benefits include:
      -- Increased development productivity   -- Increased traceability
      -- Reduced development cycles           -- Reduced risks
      -- Increased software quality           -- Improved project management
      -- Increased component reusability
 
     "The obvious advantages of a repository-based modeling environment versus
 a file-based modeling tool are what initially drew us into discussions with
 MEGA," said Bill Colacurcio, program manager, strategic alliances at
 Telelogic. "The difference between CM Synergy and a simple versioning tool is
 the same as the difference between the MEGA Suite environment and a stand-
 alone modeling tool. The visual design repository enables teams to work
 effectively together to share and reuse any granular object. The combined
 integration enables users to accomplish operations, which are out of reach for
 file-based products: impact analysis, merge of objects and comparison of
 models.  For over a year the integration has been successful in Europe.
 Customer requests have convinced us to strengthen our partnership and offer
 the integration on a global basis."
     Designed to help development teams work faster and more efficiently, CM
 Synergy accelerates the release management process, maximizes the efficiency
 of high-demand development resources and brings together distributed
 development teams.  It is an integrated, enterprise-scale solution that
 manages software and content development lifecycles, as well as the projects,
 processes and people associated with development, enabling organizations to
 more effectively develop, enhance, deploy and manage software and Internet
 applications and content.
     Compared with other modeling tools, MEGA Suite provides not only UML
 design but also business process, IS architecture and data visual analysis and
 design in a collaborative environment.    MEGA Suite enables information
 systems architects to optimize their systems and expedite new business
 critical projects such as B2B, EAI and supply chain management.
