SOFTWARE/HARDWARE: MetaCase and itemis AG are joining forces to cooperate closely in offering software development automation solutions based on Domain-Specific Modeling (DSM).
DSM increases the productivity of software developers by raising the level of abstraction and introducing automation. It allows developers to specify software graphically in models that, unlike UML, are based completely on the system’s problem domain. This leads to more efficient and accurate modeling, while full code is automatically generated. Like the modeling language, the generators are completely customizable, allowing a level of control and optimization previously found only in manually written code.
The introduction of DSM benefits from previous experience in language and generator creation, traditionally something that only tool vendors like MetaCase have been able to provide. MetaCase sees the cooperation with itemis as the best way to increase the availability of this scarce resource.
itemis relies on model-driven development, generating software automatically from graphical models.
