Visible Wins in Australia
The University of Newcastle Adopts Visible Analyst for Campus-wide Use
FRAMINGHAM, MA, April 12, 2010 -
Visible Systems Corporation, announced today that it has signed a multi-year
deal with The University of Newcastle, Australia for the licensing of Visible's award
winning Visible Analyst University Edition used by thousands of higher educational
institutions in training future software engineers, analysts, designers, and developers.
The University of Newcastle graduates thousands of Computer Scientists,
Programmers, and Software Engineers. Under the agreement, Visible Analyst will
be deployed campus-wide for use with the Information Technology (IT) bachelor
degree program. The University of Newcastle evaluated a number of competitive
modeling tools including IBM Rational Rose, Visual Paradigm and Holocentric Modeler
before determining that Visible Analyst was the best solution for the university's needs.
During a post installation compliance survey, the University's staff indicated:
"VA's (Visible) support services have been second to none. Given our location
we often have time zone issues when getting support from US or Europe. VA's (Visible)
support staff were always prompt in their responses and on a number of occasions
had worked odd hours in order to be available during Australian business hours
in order to troubleshoot our installation."
The University went on to say that
understanding the many methodologies, notations and rules of analyzing, designing
and developing software with Visible's educational offerings is much easier than
with other modeling tools. Visible's modeling software uses a single user
interface which tightly couples all diagrams with data repository entries,
dynamically tracking all repository entries and managing changes throughout
the life of the project. Intelligent reporting and rules checking are instantly
available for all diagram types to ensure project consistency.
It is expected that The University of Newcastle's IT graduates will be working
in very technical environments, such as web development, business systems analysis
and software project management. The core skills from the information technology
degree gives all graduates skills in building software that uses complex databases
and sophisticated web interfaces suitable for the corporate, office, or mobile phones.
The University of Newcastle recognizes that IT graduates are in demand in today's global
marketplace and that graduates are filling Australia's widening gap for business
professionals with cutting-edge IT expertise. The Australian Federal Government
statistics in 2008 reveal a weekly average of 23,200 IT job vacancies.
