LogicLibrary and Serena Software announced the integration of Logidex for .NET with Serena Dimensions for .NET.

Customers using the joint LogicLibrary-Serena solution realize improved Microsoft .NET Framework-based application development initiatives, reduced IT costs, increased productivity and improved management capabilities to meet regulatory and audit requirements. Developers using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET can experience optimal ease-of-use tool integration through seamless access to both Logidex and Dimensions from within the Visual Studio development environment.

Logidex for .NET, one of the first software development asset (SDA) discovery and mapping engines specifically for .NET, enables developers, operations managers and business analysts to map relationships among .NET Framework assets and their company’s applications, components, XML schemas, documentation and other key assets. Serena Dimensions for .NET, one of the industry’s most flexible, scalable and comprehensive change management platforms, simplifies and automates identification, categorizing and processing of issues and requests. Using both solutions together, developers have the convenience of being able to develop, change and manage applications without ever leaving the Visual Studio .NET environment.

“Integrating Logidex and Dimensions gives developers, for the first time, an effective way to combine software change and configuration management practices with metadata repositories that include .NET Framework best practices and mission-critical software assets,” said Alan Himler, vice president of product management at LogicLibrary. “This capability enables customers to achieve unprecedented visibility and control of software across the entire enterprise. Logidex and Dimensions jointly deliver more value to users by delivering a faster, less-costly way to build, consolidate, migrate and integrate high-quality .NET Framework-based applications.”

By using Dimensions and Logidex in tandem, organizations can combine comprehensive application lifecycle management with graphical, intuitive mapping and discovery of enterprise development environments. Serena Dimensions and Logidex create and update software assets at key points in the application lifecycle. These update points are aligned directly to the day-to-day tasks defined for architects, designers, and developers–leading to more efficient development processes.

“The integration of Dimensions and Logidex is the latest demonstration of Serena’s commitment to provide users with a consistent experience across all platforms and clients,” said Ashley Owen, director of product marketing at Serena. “Many of our customers use metadata repositories such as Logidex to enable software reuse, increase governance and accelerate deployments of new Microsoft .NET technologies. Combining LogicLibrary’s expertise with Serena’s industry-leading change management technology helps organizations reduce risks and increase productivity throughout the application development lifecycle.”

Both LogicLibrary and Serena are premier members of the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) Program, a program designed for independent software vendors (ISVs), systems integrators (SIs), academic institutions, corporations and developers interested in integrating tools, components, and languages into the Visual Studio .NET integrated development environment (IDE).

“Serena and LogicLibrary, both members of the VSIP program and leaders in their respective markets, have combined to bring exciting new development benefits to the Windows platform,” said Nick Abbott, group product manager in the .NET Developer Product Management Group at Microsoft Corp. “With the integration of Serena Dimensions and Logidex, developers using Visual Studio .NET have direct access to some of the best change and asset management tools on the market today. LogicLibrary and Serena provide users with exceptional value by helping to drive down costs and boost productivity for development, Web services and service-oriented architecture initiatives.”

In May, LogicLibrary announced its partnership with Serena, building on the close relationship between LogicLibrary and Merant, which was acquired by Serena earlier this year. Serena and LogicLibrary continue to collaborate on integration between Logidex and Serena TeamTrack, an enterprise process management solution built with an open architecture that improves workflow, communication and accountability across an enterprise.

During Serena Xchange 2004, Serena’s global user conference, Brent Carlson, vice president of technology and co-founder for LogicLibrary, and Ashley Owen will present a joint session, titled “Software Reuse: Best Practices using Dimensions, Visual Studio .NET and Logidex.” Carlson and Owen will discuss real-world software reuse initiatives and the best practices that make them successful. SerenaXchange is being held through September 15 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
