SD Times Honors I-Logix with Modeling Leadership and Innovation Award

6/2/2005 - For the third time in a row, I-Logix is honored to have won an SD Times 100 award from BZ Media’s prominent software industry trade journal, SD Times. In 2005, the I-Logix flagship product Rhapsody 6.0 took top honors in the Modeling category, winning the Model-Driven Development (MDD) Focus of the Embedded Development Arena award. Company officials note that new Rhapsody 6.0 has received a warm reception from developers and engineers in the automotive, aviation, defense, telecom, medical and electronics markets, to name but a few areas Rhapsody 6.0 is utilized to realize marked quality and time-to-market gains. This win follows on the heels of another prestigious victory at ESC San Francisco, where the newly launched Rhapsody 6.0 won an “Embeddie” for Best in Show award, establishing a first for the VDC group who, until this year, had not awarded a “Best in Show” to an existing product upgrade.

"The software development industry is led by innovation," said Alan Zeichick, Editor-in-Chief of BZ Media's SD Times. "When choosing the 2005 SD Times 100, we carefully considered each organization's products and services, reputation with development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it has brought to the industry. Thanks to the SD Times 100 winners, the art of software development continues to advance at a rapid pace."

“We are honored and grateful to SD Times for choosing Rhapsody 6.0 for this award. This recognition, and the recent Best in Show award at ESC San Francisco validates what we at I-Logix know, and now designers and developers can attest to: Rhapsody 6.0 is at the very pinnacle of state-of-the-art embedded industry tools driven by innovation and market leadership that delivers a compelling Return On Investment (ROI) to our customers. Rhapsody 6.0 deserves to be on every user’s shortlist for Embedded systems and software development tools,” Neeraj Chandra, I-Logix Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development, said.

Rhapsody versions 4.2 and 5.0 won SD Times 100 awards in 2003 and 2004 respectively, proving to the embedded marketplace that the Rhapsody modeling tool solution is a versatile, effective and easy-to-use software development package. Past SD Times 100 winners include IBM, Microsoft and Intel.
