Altova Named to SD Times 100


the award for “Tools & Frameworks” goes to Altova!

  SDTimes100We are honored to be named to the SD Times 100 for the sixth time! The award, now in its 7th year, recognizes the top innovators and leaders in multiple software development industry areas. Each year the editors of SD Times scour over thousands of nominations in search of companies, non-commercial organizations, open source projects, and other initiatives that exemplify innovation and leadership. When choosing the SD Times 100, the editors consider each company’s offerings and reputation. They listen to the “buzz” — how much attention a company, its products and technologies are creating — as a sign of leadership within the industry. Did the company set the industry agenda? Did a company’s products and services advance the software development art? Were programmers anxiously awaiting its developments? For the judges of the SD Times 100, these are qualities that mark a leader. So what makes us a SD Times 100 winner? In Version 2009, our MissionKit suite of XML, database, and UML tools added key support for working with industry standards like Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) and Health Level 7 (HL7) to help companies adopt these standards while reducing costs and development time. We also rolled out over 70 new, customer-requested features in Version 2010 as part of our “Most Wanted” release, including support for WSDL 2.0, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), and SysML, as well as compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit operating systems, and much more. Download a free, 30-day trial of the MissionKit (v2010r3) and see what’s new in the latest version (v2010r3) of our awarding winning suite of XML, database, and UML tools.
