No Magic and Model Drivers Partnership to Provide Organizational Efficiency, Reduce Risk & Cost

Allen, Texas and London, England (February 14, 2014) – No Magic Inc., the leading global provider of integrated modeling, simulation, and analysis services and solutions and Model Drivers, provider of Model DR, today announced a technology partnership to provide model-driven XBRL solutions to improve business reporting for businesses and regulators.

The partnership is an extension of the successful development of Model DR, which combines the power of Data Point Modeling, RDF, NoSQL technology and the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) with the award-winning features and functionality of No Magic's Cameo®/MagicDraw modeling suite.

Model DR is one of the first tools to leverage the XBRL Abstract Model developed by XBRL International (XII), the global consortium that created and maintains the XBRL standard. The Abstract Model gives developers and analysts a strong foundation for implementing XBRL solutions.

"We at No Magic have enthusiastically supported XBRL International and their efforts to take XBRL to the next level of efficiency and effectiveness with their abstract model and data comparability initiatives," said Gary Duncanson President and CEO of No Magic and Object Management Group (OMG) Board Member. "We are delighted to see a member of the XBRL community bring these kinds of powerful, innovative business outcomes to the XBRL user base," added Mr. Duncanson.

"This new technology reflects what we believe are the big ideas to industrializing the business reporting process," commented Greg Soulsby, Director at Model Drivers. "Understanding your data, mapping your business data to your reporting and analysis requirements and driving reporting and analytics through automation and new technology are key," said Soulsby.

As part of the development process, XII is currently seeking implementation examples of the XBRL Abstract Model to better meet the needs of the market. "XII is grateful for the contribution of Model Drivers and No Magic for both their use of the Abstract Model in the creation of Model DR and for the valuable feedback it will provide to our ongoing efforts," said John Turner, CEO of XBRL International. "We hope the news of this partnership will inspire others to make similar contributions."

Model DR empowers business analysts, IT architects, enterprise architects and compliance officers with a tool to implement XBRL with greater speed and confidence, achieving faster, more efficient and far less costly regulatory reporting.

CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) and No Magic Corporation Announce a Cooperative Agreement

on . Posted in 2014 Press Releases

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE) -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) and No Magic Corporation recently announced a cooperative agreement to provide comprehensive Enterprise Architecture modeling and simulation services to commercial, government, and defense clients.

We are now announcing the first new development in our relationship. We have integrated CACI's Model-Driven Design and Implementation (MDDI) methodology and SIMPROCESS software with No Magic's Cameo® Suite to provide integrated and executable system architectures.

CACI's innovative MDDI methodology is a standards-based, repeatable process that accelerates the delivery of solutions, and provides client visibility and development agility throughout the entire software development lifecycle. CACI's SIMPROCESS and No Magic's Cameo Suite operate inside this framework. SIMPROCESS is a powerful modeling and simulation tool that allows analysts to examine process alternatives and multiple scenarios using quantifiable metrics. No Magic's Cameo Suite supports the full enterprise application life cycle from business requirements/planning through and including final testing.

This new partnership enables customers to develop standards-compliant business process models within the Cameo Suite, instantly export the models to SIMPROCESS, run simulations, analyze and optimize the business and engineering processes, and export them back into Cameo Suite where the entire architecture still resides with zero loss in fidelity.
This "round tripping" capability between architecture and simulation models enables substantially improved abilities for organizations to define, refine and optimize end-to-end business and engineering processes of all kinds, and do so within a full Enterprise Architecture context, prior to actually implementing the process changes.

CACI SVP Larry Ferguson stated, "The alliance of CACI and No Magic to integrate MDDI, SIMPROCESS, and the Cameo Suite creates a powerful partnership and unparalleled methodology and tools to provide faster, more efficient process improvement and system development from requirements generation to implementation for our clients."

No Magic & E2E Introduce Cameo E2E Builder at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013 in Orlando

on . Posted in 2013 Press Releases

Product Launch Brings Executable UML, BPMN and Model-Driven Security to a Broader Audience

Allen, Texas and Basel, Switzerland (October 15, 2013) - No Magic, Inc., the leading global provider of integrated modeling, simulation and analysis services and solutions, and E2E Technologies, provider of the process-oriented Business Middleware E2E Bridge, today announced the global availability of the Cameo E2E Builder at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013 in Orlando.

The joint product bundle, priced at under $1,000, features proven model-driven integration tools from E2E and No Magic. The highly integrated development environment for executable UML and BPMN allows developers, business analysts and enterprise architects the ability to create, debug and test highly secure, Cloud-ready enterprise integration solutions, dramatically reducing integration risk. Cameo E2E Builder includes a model compiler, a model debugger, model-based testing and an industry first – an interceptor-based model-driven framework for advanced cyber security in the context of SOA (Service Oriented Architectures).

"This is a powerful metaphor, where the model is the system," said Dr. Richard Soley, Chairman and CEO of the Object Management Group (OMG). "By going the last mile of model-driven development, including model debugging, model testing and even model driven security, the Cameo E2E Builder clearly brings the original vision of a Model Driven Architecture to life," commented Dr. Soley.

For software developers, business analysts and enterprise architects who have been working with No Magic's MagicDraw, or who would like to, the Cameo E2E Builder offers a powerful business outcome that helps solve the most difficult systems integration challenges. With the Builder, specifications in the form of models can be directly executed with a high-performance, enterprise-class virtual machine for BPMN and UML.

The Cameo E2E Builder software is packaged with more than 60 backend adapters, connectors and importers supporting SAP, Salesforce.com, Oracle and many others. In addition, users receive a quick-start project model, allowing them to experience the full potential of direct model execution in an easy to use, ready-to-run SOA solution.

"My initial experience with the Cameo E2E Builder was flawless, and I really like the built- in test framework and model debugger," said Paul Cahill, Systems Engineer. "The Builder also sports a vast range of built-in adaptors that allow automated integration with most system components, functions and data stores. The Builder is an important advancement in connecting the analysis we do directly to the implementations. This significantly aids the integration challenges we all face today plus it promotes a clear understanding of how the business requirements relate to the implementation. We create the entire analysis and integration environment on a laptop with an "execute, debug and test" framework in a very short period of time, using only models through the complete lifecycle," added Cahill.

"The Builder offers the industry's first integrated model-based design, debug and test environment for enterprise-class integration solutions," commented Cliff Faurer, experienced SOA architect at AMKB Cloud. "This fills a big need in the design and development community to use a more visual approach based on UML and BPMN. This visual approach addresses communication and integration challenges in a much more effective way than traditional integration approaches based on classic middleware. Seeing is believing, and when the model is the code, productivity goes up and efficiency and effectiveness increase," said Faurer.
