No Magic Named in Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools


Evaluation based on ability to execute and completeness of vision


Dallas, Texas (January 9, 2012) No Magic, Inc., the leading global provider of integrated  modeling, simulation and analysis solutions and services, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools.*


No Magic’s MagicDraw is known in the industry as a leading object-oriented analysis and design tool. MagicDraw’s active validation feature helps ensure enterprise-wide consistency across teams and checks the model against business rules and meta-model constraints notifying users of any violation. As a result, users will benefit from both reduced costs and better quality.


No Magic was evaluated for the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. MagicDraw provides strong BPMN, UML, SysML, UPDM, DoDAF, MODAF and SoaML modeling support with simulations using activity execution (OMG UML standard), State Diagram (WC3 SCXML), and full SysML bidirectional parametric execution. The unique MagicDraw iPhone Edition gives users the ability to review their models on the iPhone and iPod Touch.


“We believe that our inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools recognizes our position in the marketplace, where our mantra is ‘the truth is in the model,’” says Gary Duncanson, President and CEO of No Magic. “We have executed against our strategy of developing a MagicDraw-based ecosystem, the Cameo Suite, which has resulted in the broad adoption of our solutions by industry-leading vendors worldwide. This is evidenced by the fact that we are seeing more government agencies and Fortune 500 companies demand modeling, simulation and analysis solutions, as budgets grow tighter. Companies know that they must do more with less and accurately predict how systems will function when they are deployed. We will continue to innovate in our offerings and services to ensure that our clients receive the most comprehensive and ‘visionary’ industry solutions.”
