Lattix LDM for C/C++ Extends Lightweight Dependency Models to C/C++ Apps

3/13/2006 - Lattix Inc., the provider of innovative software architecture management solutions, today announced at SDWest 2006 the introduction of Lattix LDM for C/C++ as part of the new 2.6 version of Lattix LDM. With this unique solution, Lattix extends the power of Lightweight Dependency Models (LDMs) to formalize, communicate and control the architecture of any C/C++ application, particularly in large Enterprise systems and complex embedded applications in such industries as financial services, instrumentation, medicine and telecommunications.

Lattix has pioneered an approach that uses system interdependencies to create an accurate blueprint of large, mission-critical software systems. Lattix LDM is the first product to use a dependency-structure matrix for a highly compact and scaleable representation of an entire system. With the LDM approach, architects and developers can analyze their architecture in detail, quickly identify issues and opportunities for improvement, and then specify design rules to formalize and communicate that architecture to the entire development organization.

"Lattix LDM for C/C++ is valuable for those applications that have grown over time where the architecture has become obscured," explains Neeraj Sangal, president and founder of Lattix. "Since it is easier in C/C++ applications to create undesirable couplings, particularly through include dependencies, the architecture is harder to discover and understand. Our customers will now have the means to test an architecture, detect violations during development and prevent further architectural erosion."

Lattix LDM enables companies to improve and maintain quality, enhance testability, lower costs through more effective development and manage risks by understanding the impact of proposed changes.
