Novulo’s groundbreaking new technology bridges the gap between code and concept, allowing for unprecedented flexibility and customization throughout the programming process. Novulo uses model driven development in a way that makes it possible to visually create and maintain .NET applications.

Novulo’s unique Model Driven Development process (MDD) allows both IT professionals and business users to communicate, model the application together, and ultimately align results.

Anyone who has ever worked on a software project knows that new ideas spring up all the time. Unfortunately, changing software design in the middle of a project leads to time-consuming edits and modifications on the part of the programmer. The Novulo Architect avoids the programming pitfalls by allowing users to quickly and easily modify the model instead of having to delve into the complexities of the actual programming code. This leads to an amazing cost reduction and less time to launch new software application projects.

Sapiens is a leading provider of innovative EMDM technology that is widely recognized for its ability to cost effectively align IT with business demands for Agility, flexibility and reduce risks.

Established in 1982 Sapiens is a pioneer in a EMDM (Enterprise Model Driven Middleware) together with a rule-based core development suite, which enables rapid solution development for complex mission-critical enterprises. with a customer base that spans the USA, EMEA, and Japan, Sapiens empowers mission-critical systems for many Global 1000 companies such as AXA, AVIVA, Mazda, ING, IHG, Liverpool Victoria, Assurant, Principal Financial Group, Lloyds TSB, Prudential and many others.

The company's eMerge environment demonstrates the productivity benefits delivered when a modern Model-Driven Development (MDD) tool is coupled with an event-driven Business Rule Engine (BRE) and with a Rich Internet Application (RIA) engine all running on an enterprise class middleware as KnowledgeBase™.  The product is commonly used in conjunction with agile software development methodologies. Resulting applications are automatically capable of Extreme Transaction Processing (XTP) by means of the product’s high scalability which is achieved through clustering and load balancing.  Many of the product's customers regularly handle thousands of concurrent users, millions of transactions and billions of rules per day, thus entrusting their mission-critical bet-the-business applications to the product.

Modelio: Globalizing MDA

Modelio is a modeling tool addressing both Business and IT, that supports IS to business alignment. The MDA technology has been too much focused on software aspects, mainly on code generation or technical architecture aspects. MDA must be much more used to support methodologies and sustain modeling on the entire enterprise scope. This paper presents how, by integrating in a single repository the entire enterprise scope modeling coverage, by providing strong MDA capacities and by allowing an efficient and flexible distributed team cooperation, Modelio allows a global MDA approach, empowering thus MDA to the enterprise wide application.

EU FP7 SHAPE (Semantically-enabled Heterogeneous Service Architecture and Platforms Engineering)

The SHAPE project aims to support the development and realization of enterprise systems based on a Semantically-enabled Heterogeneous service Architecture (SHA). SHA extends Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) with semantics and heterogeneous infrastructures (Web services, Agents, Semantic Web Services, P2P and Grid) under a unified service oriented approach. To achieve this the consortium of the SHAPE project will develop a Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) tool-supported methodology and will take an active role in the standardization of metamodels and languages for SHA.
