RATIONAL ROSE LETS YOU...
It's a fact. Software projects today are more complex than ever before. Which explains why so many projects tail. They're victims of excessive complexity, constantly changing requirements, and a breakdown in communication between end users and software developers.
The solution to these problems is a well-architect-ed system — one that's modeled visually, giving you a blueprint of your entire system. Rational Software calls this kind of well-architected application "resilient," which means that developers like you can now create software that remains flexible in the face of change.
The bottom line? Rational Rose can help you improve communications, shorten development time, and make complex systems more easily understood.
Rational Rose is the World's Leading Visual Modeling Tool
We're proud of the fact that Rational Rose dominates the market for Object-oriented Analysis, Modeling, Design, and Construction Tools. A recent report from International Data Corporation (IDC), a leading, independent market and technology research firm, shows that Rational's 1998 market by revenue share is larger than the shares of the next four direct competitors combined. In fact, 1999 marks the fourth consecutive year IDC has named Rational Rose the leading Object-oriented Analysis Design and Construction Tool based on product revenues. You are expected to build systems that will last. Will your project outlive your vendor?
Also, it should come as no surprise that industry experts, journal editors, and users have all recognized Rose's leadership, with more product awards (20 to date) than any other visual modeling tool. We're also acknowledged as technology leaders for our role in the development of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) —the standard notation for software architecture. Rational Rose 2000 continues this tradition of excellence.
Unparalleled Support for the UML
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) allows analysts, software architects, and developers
to specify, visualize, and document an entire system. By providing a common "language"
for speaking about a complex system, the UML allows many different contributors,
with diverse perspectives, to communicate on common ground. Key Rational scientists,
including Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, and Jim Rumbaugh led the authoring of the
UML standard. The Object Management Group (OMG) accepted Rational's submission
of the UML and adopted it as the standard.
For the development of complex business systems, component-based development is the proven way to go. With Rational Rose, users can now model their components and interfaces even more effectively. Required components of a design can be easily reverse-engineered to explore the interfaces and interrelationships between other components in the model, lust drag and drop components from a file system onto the component diagram. Then you can reverse engineer, reuse, visualize, adapt, acquire, and create components for your system quickly and efficiently.
Large-scale software projects often involve a variety of languages. Rational Rose provides multi-language support so you can build components in mixed languages. Rose supports C++, Visual C++, lava, Visual Basic, Ada, and can generate Interface Definition Language (IDL) for CORBA applications, as well as Data Description Language (DDL) for database applications. Rational Rose is also platform independent, which means your team can work in Windows and UNIX environments.
Rational Rose allows you to move easily from analysis to design to implementation and back to analysis again — supporting all phases of a project's lifecycle. This controlled iterative style of development lets projects begin with a set of known requirements, and then evolve as project parameters change or new requirements are added.
Rational Rose supports this dynamic change-management process with forward engineering, reverse engineering, and model updating features that allow you to alter your implementation, assess your changes, and automatically incorporate them into your design. Support for round-trip engineering ensures that the iterative development cycle is controlled and productive
Complete Team Support
Rational Rose provides an easy way to coordinate development teams of
ten to one hundred or more. Your analysts, architects, and engineers can
operate in a private workspace that contains an individual view of the
entire model, and modify his or her own piece of the model until it is
ready to be merged with other models using the Model Integrator. Changes
are made available to others by checking them into a configuration management
and version control (CMVC) system. Rational Rose integrates with major
CMVC tools including Rational ClearCase and Microsoft SourceSafe. Rose
is also Tightly integrated with the Microsoft Repository and Unisys UREP
and is open to other repositories.
Teamwork involves more than attending a few cress-functional meetings. It means truly integrating the people on your team so each practitioner shares a common vision throughout the project lifecycle. Rational makes this practical with unique team-unifying solutions like Rational Suite and Rational Cleat-Case, our market-leading configuration and change management solutions. Now any team member can accurately assess progress and quality at any time. Best of all, with Rational's solutions the entire Team works in unison — even across multiple platforms, operating systems and geographically distributed sites.
Rational Rose is a member of Rational Suite"' DevelopmentStudio and AnalystStudio ". Rational Suite, combined with both Rational ClearCase®, the market-leading configuration and change management solution, and Rational Software's world-class training and support is a winning combination.

"A key benefit of UML is that users gain control over the architecture they are building. The key discriminator between successful and unsuccessful projects is how well architected the system is."
"At FedEx, we needed a visual modeling tool to build our mission-critical Global Operations Control Center (GOCC) system. Rational Rose proved to be the best solution for our integration and expansion requirements."
