Scott Hebbard2On the 30th of June, Catherine Vance was awarded the Sparx Systems Award for her exceptional project work and dedication to her studies at Federation University, Australia.

 

The award was presented at the Faculty of Science and Technology Student Award Ceremony by Sparx Systems' Communications Manager, Scott Hebbard, who noted "I was pleasing to present an award to a student so dedicated and passionate about learning programming and software engineering using Enterprise Architect."

 

On her award win, Catherine has commented: "I would like to thank Sparx Systems for presenting me with the Sparx Systems Pty Ltd award, along with a copy of Enterprise Architect Ultimate Edition and a cheque for $500. I am a mature aged student studying Bachelor of IT, Professional Practice at Federation University Australia. I recently completed a software engineering subject where I found Enterprise Architect to be invaluable for creating sequence diagrams, class diagrams, domain model diagrams and various other models. I also found the reverse engineering function to be particularly useful. I have used Enterprise Architect in programming subjects throughout my degree and it is a great program for all IT students to use. I enjoy programming, and software engineering was one of my favourite subjects so far. I work very hard in my studies and greatly appreciate this award. Thank you very much to all at Sparx Systems."

 

All of us at Sparx Systems congratulate Catherine on her win, and wish her all the best in her career.

Sparx Systems has once again made it to the 2017 SD Times 100 list in the ALM & Development Tools Category.  SD times indicated that "Application life-cycle management needs sound methods coupled with up-to-date tools and platforms for requirements so that teams know what to do and when to do it by. These companies helped developers stick to the plan and avoid falling behind in 2017."  Enterprise Architect provides a solid platform for the delivery and support of new applications, services, and technologies, by encouraging and facilitation of increased productivity between development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). Sparx Systems is pleased to be on the 2017 SD Times 100.

sdtimes 100In an in-depth and illuminating interview with Sparx Systems Founder and CEO Geoffrey Sparks, Alexandra Weber Morales from SD Times identified several key aspects surrounding the company's continued growth in the DevOps space.

 

Geoffrey illustrated how Enterprise Architect provides a solid platform for the delivery and support of new applications, services, and technologies, by encouraging and facilitation of increased productivity between development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). The Sparx CEO also explained the importance of UML as the established standard for software modeling.

 

"Within those organizations that are undergoing digital transformation
to improve operational efficiencies (many of whom are Sparx Systems
customers), there is a prevalence of UML tools deployed to manage application
delivery, a process which relies implicitly on code quality assurance."
