PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - October 06, 2016) - Today, Jama Software -- a product-development solution for companies building complex hardware, software and integrated systems -- announced a technology partnership with Intercax, a pioneer in model-based systems engineering (MBE/MBSE). The partnership leverages the Syndeia platform from Intercax to allow system engineers to dynamically connect requirements from Jama to other platforms in their ecosystem. This connection effectively expands collaboration and traceability within customers' product development teams.

With Syndeia, engineering teams can collaboratively develop and manage the Total System Model of systems distributed across an array of software tools and databases. Jama's integration with Syndeia will allow Jama users to access, exchange and update a variety of requirement data within PLM, ALM, CAD, database, and simulation environments.

"Modern product development requires close integration and alignment between solutions to track requirements and keep up with customer demand," said Andrew Byers, strategic account executive for Jama Software. "Intercax is a leader in the model-centric approach to designing and managing complex systems, and we're pleased the company is joining the Jama Alliance to support the evolution of modern product delivery."

"Syndeia makes it possible to build, query, and visualize a federated 'digital blueprint' of a system, connecting a wide range of models and enterprise repositories. Integration with Jama will provide seamless traceability and impact assessments across the system model graph, from requirement models in Jama to parts in a PLM system and software in a ALM system, and vice versa," said Dr. Manas Bajaj, chief systems officer at Intercax.

Through the Syndeia interface, Jama customers will be able to more quickly create a traceable link between Jama requirements and any SysML elements, transform a Jama requirement set into a SysML requirement hierarchy (and vice versa), and compare and synchronize requirement models as projects evolve.

The Intercax technology partnership is the most recent addition to the array of successful partnerships and integrations stemming from the Jama Alliance program. The Jama Alliance is always open to applicants; for more information, visit www.jamasoftware.com/partners.
