Adaptive launches first implementation of OMG metadata standards Thursday 6 September 2001 PDF Print Adaptive Repository first to provide commercial support for MOF 1.3 and CWM 1.0 standards London - 6th September 2001 - Adaptive Ltd today announced the release of Adaptive Information Manager (AIM) Version 1.0. AIM comprises Adaptive PortalPro, the next generation of Adaptive's acclaimed repository user interface client; Adaptive WorkBench, a complete toolkit for building, deploying and maintaining repository solutions; and Adaptive Repository, the world's first OMG MOF (Meta Object Faciilty) based repository. Standards support is further enhanced through the inclusion of the first commercial implementation of OMG's CWM (Common Warehouse Model) version 1.0 specification, along with full support for UML 1.3, XML 1.0 and XMI 1.1. Support for the newly announced JMI standard is expected by Autumn 2001. UK based Adaptive are leaders in the development of tools and utilities that deliver robust repository based solutions for Enterprise Architecture, Component based Development, Metadata Management and Data Warehousing. The first major repository release from the company since it acquired rights to UREP from Unisys in the spring, the Adaptive Repository has undergone extensive testing and Adaptive have dramatically increased performance for this first commercial release. Adaptive PortalPro, sees a move away from a "thick" windows client to an all new browser based "thin" client, making it easier than ever before for users to deploy applications more widely while providing full browsing and update capability. Commenting on the release Philip Howard, Prinicipal Analyst at Bloor Research said, "For a long time I have felt that not enough attention has been paid to repositories in the market. Those in the know recognise their importance, but it is a technology largely ignored by the media - I guess it is not sexy enough. The introduction of the MOF standard and its implementation in the Adaptive Repository together with the product's support for other OMG standards ought to raise this technology's profile." "We have been delighted by the reception from users and prospects alike, we always knew that our technology was good, but now we are seeing that the application of it is right," said Colin Fox, CEO of Adaptive. " We are looking forward to launching our new Component Management and Architecture solutions later this year based upon AIM."
