Enterprise Architect 8 Will Introduce Powerful New Service-Oriented Modeling Capabilities for Enterprise Architecture, Application Architecture, Service-Oriented Architecture, and Cloud Computing Modeling.
Monroe, NJ (PRWEB) March 15, 2010
Sparx Systems, Cephas Consulting Corporation, and Methodologies Corporation, leaders in the software modeling industry, today announced the inclusion of Service-Oriented Modeling Framework (SOMF) 2.0 with the imminent release of Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect 8.
Mr. Ben Constable, the Chief Operations Officer of Sparx Systems, a leading vendor of modeling tools based on open standards, stated: “Integrating the SOMF framework into Enterprise Architect 8 was really a natural development for us. Sparx Systems has had a strategic interest in providing service-oriented architecture modeling tools for some years now. In SOMF 2.0 we have a powerful, visual framework that gives our users a holistic view of their services landscape. We see SOMF therefore as complementing and bringing together downstream SOA-enabling technologies already supported in Enterprise Architect, including XML Schema, WSDL and BPEL."
Mr. Frank Truyen, President of Cephas Consulting Corporation a leading modeling training institution, added: "We are thrilled to have this opportunity for helping Sparx Systems realize the complete SOMF notation in its powerful Enterprise Architect modeling tool, as well as working with Michael and his team in providing a solid, highly capable implementation of the SOMF modeling features. We feel strongly about the potential for SOMF to reach a very wide user base across the world, and are ready to help its dissemination by offering tool specific training and mentoring services."
Finally, Mr. Michael Bell, the author of SOMF™ and founder of Methodologies Corporation the leading service-oriented modeling company, concluded: “We have noticed a strong demand for SOMF, an enterprise software modeling framework that is universal, simple, and easy to use by a wide range of organizational stakeholders, such as business architects, technical architects, software developers, software modelers, business and systems analysts, and managers. Moreover, SOMF fosters asset reuse, expenditure reduction, and consolidation of software products by employing a powerful and modern modeling language and notation.”
