Lattix Releases New Software Architecture Management System
Lattix releases Lattix LDM 3.0, the latest version of its Lightweight Dependency Model software for architects and designers.Lattix has announced Lattix LDM 3.0, which lets managers, architects and developers visualize, specify and maintain the architecture of a complex enterprise software system through models. With its LDM (Lightweight Dependency Model) technology, Andover, Mass.-based Lattix ushered in a new approach known as the DSM (Dependency Structure Matrix), which uses dependencies to create an accurate and scaleable blueprint of complex software applications. And Lattix LDM 3.0 lets users apply this approach for systems that span different domains, such as databases, services and applications, the company said.
Other new features in Lattix LDM 3.0 include enhancements to the companys Dependency Model approach, which extends DSM with architecture rules, to offer a new way to visualize and manage the architecture of database systems. Also, through a new LDI (Lattix Data Import) module, users can specify their own systems and configurations to create an end-to-end view of an enterprise system that includes business processes, the company said. LDI is an XML specification that allows users to load dependency information from different languages, configuration files and proprietary tools.
