Model Driven Development Continues to Build Momentum

NetBeans, Eclipse & Microsoft getting on the MDD Bandwagon

Intelliun Corporation, the leading innovator in Model Driven Development (MDD) welcomes the increased interest and adoption of the MDD approach from industry leaders such as NetBeans, Eclipse and Microsoft.

We were delighted when, as part of his keynote speech at the last TechEd Conference in Orlando, Bill Gates described modeling as one of the biggest trends in application development, Intelliun President and Chief Executive Officer, Iyad Jabri, said. This further validates the market trend and future of software development which was the principal vision for founding Intelliun back in 1999.

The Virtual Enterprise (VE), Intelliuns model driven application development platform, was the first MDD platform to offer end-to-end Web application development using visual models, and is now in its sixth generation with features that further the platforms technology lead. Today, Intelliuns VE software is in use across a wide spectrum of industries and amongst organizations of all sizes.

Model driven application development has the potential to significantly change how businesses think about software development by delivering business results that cannot be achieved using traditional application development methods within the time, cost and resource constraints. As a pioneer, Intelliun has played an important role in advancing MDD and the supporting architectural patterns, Dr. Richard Mark Soley, chairman and chief executive officer of The Object Management Group, said.

Momentum is clearly picking up for Model Driven Development and we are working closely with Intelliun as a NetBeans Strategic Partner to offer MDD support to developers using our award winning IDE, Senior Manager, NetBeans Partner Program, Ashwin Rao, said.
