New Application Simulation Software Reduces Risk and Complexity in Enterprise Projects

Share Article

Gorilla eXecution Engine (GXE) enables end users and customers to test applications before developers write code.

The functional prototypes created with the GXE allow our business and IT audiences to efficiently validate and verify business system requirements before developing the final application.

Enterprise teams building large-scale applications can keep on schedule and on budget by using a new application definition platform developed by Gorilla Logic that lets business stakeholders, end users, and developers test applications before coding.

Using the new Gorilla eXecution Engine™ (GXE), development teams can visualize, define, and validate software application requirements by allowing users to try a simulated solution. Unlike other prototyping tools, the GXE creates working prototypes directly from industry-standard unified modeling language (UML) models with little or no programming. With the GXE, enterprises can develop software applications faster and improve quality by reducing requirements creep and change orders.

"The GXE rapidly transforms our business system requirements into working visual prototypes," stated Alistair Blair, principal analyst with British Sky Broadcasting. "The functional prototypes created with the GXE allow our business and IT audiences to efficiently validate and verify business system requirements before developing the final application."

The communication gap that exists between information technology (IT) developers, analysts, stakeholders, and end users frequently leads to project inefficiency. In fact, research from the Standish Group shows 51 percent of all IT projects are late, over budget, or missing critical functionality, and another 16 percent are outright failures. By creating simulations directly from industry-standard unified modeling language (UML) diagrams, the GXE bridges this communication gap to ensure teams build the right application the first time, according to Stu Stern, president and CEO of Gorilla Logic, Inc.

“Test driving the application is clearly the best way for end users and business stakeholders to solidify requirements,” said Stern. “Based on our own experience in large-scale application development, we recognize the advantages of a platform that rapidly converts UML models to working prototypes. By allowing end users to try a simulated solution before code is written, the GXE dramatically improves application development efficiency.”

A free thirty-day trial of GXE 1.0 is available at GXE 1.0 is compatible with the following modeling tools: IBM Rational ROSE™, IBM Rational XDE™, NoMagic’s MagicDraw™, and Gentleware’s Poseidon™.
