Headway Software Releases Structure101 & Restructure101 for Microsoft .NET Developers
The Structure101 product set used by thousands of Java and C/C++ developers to disentangle, define, and enforce their software architecture is now available for Microsoft Visual Studio developers.
Microsoft WPC, Los Angeles, CA, July 12, 2011
Headway Software today announced the General Availability release of the full family of Structure101 development tools for the Microsoft .NET platform. The tools that have been available to Java and C/C++ developers for over 4 years have been adapted by the company so that Visual Studio development teams can now also disentangle, define and enforce their software architecture.
Restructure101 for .NET is designed to allow software architects delve into structural problems and to explore solutions by directly manipulating a model of the codebase.
Structure101 for .NET supports the creation of a visual architecture specification that can be communicated to the team through a Visual Studio plug-in, which also raises an error when the developer makes a change to the code that violates the dependency rules.
Structure101 Build for .NET guarantees the integrity of the architecture at build time.
“This move is in response to requests from our existing customer base”, said Headways CEO Chris Chedgey, “the number and size of Microsoft .NET projects within ‘Java shops’ is increasing, and those teams are looking for the same architectural control enjoyed by their Java colleagues across the corridor”.
iQuate Announces iQSonar for Microsoft
Advanced technology to help Microsoft LARs leverage SAM incentive program
Microsoft World Partner Conference, Los Angeles, CA, July 11, 2011— Today, iQuate announced availability of iQSonar for Microsoft. iQSonar’s powerful discovery platform is focused on Data Center and Server technologies and is configured to give Microsoft customers and partners detailed and accurate information about their Microsoft products and the environment on which they are installed.
This information is critical to the management and control of Microsoft deployments by providing a verifiably accurate basis for effective Software Asset Management (SAM) programs.
“Microsoft has been promoting the benefits of effective Software Asset Management to its customers for several years” commented Pat Durkin, iQuate CEO. “Now with the imminent partner SAM Services incentive program aimed at Large Account Resellers (LARs), they are actively promoting the benefits of SAM to their most important resellers. The biggest risk to customers and most significant area of reward for partners is in the complex data center environment which accounts for approximately 80% of enterprise software budgets. Unfortunately, SAM programs have traditionally not extended successfully into this environment because of the underlying complexity and this has left customers exposed to risk, with vendors and their partners missing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Now iQSonar gives customers and partners the ability to deliver effective SAM across the data center.”
