1/31/2003 - Yphise, a leading analyst firm, has named Rational Rose® the best Unified Modeling Language (UML) solution for project and information system modeling. Yphise provides independent assessments of software products based on ISO 9001-certified methodology.

The results, which are included in Yphise's software assessment report titled "UML Modeling of Projects and Information Systems," rated Rational Rose higher than its competitors in the following areas:

"Rational Rose's seamless integration with tools for configuration management, testing and requirements management, combined with its support for many development languages position Rational as the leader in the UML modeling market."
