ICONIX Ships New Object-Oriented Training CD-ROM: "Overview of Object-Oriented Analysis & Design Methods"

SANTA MONICA, California...ICONIX Software Engineering, Inc., makers of ICONIX PowerTools(tm), announced the release of their new Object-Oriented Methodology Training CD-ROM: "Overview of Object-Oriented Analysis & Design Methods," the first training course of its kind to appear on CD-ROM. Through the use of on-line demos and tutorials, the CD-ROM provides a thorough, yet easy-to-follow survey of the various O-O methodologies currently in use: Rumbaugh OMT, Jacobson Objectory, Booch OOD, Coad/Yourdon OOA, Wirfs-Brock RDD, Martin-Odell OOA and Shlaer-Mellor OOA/OODLE methods.

One of the first CASE tool companies to make its mark in the Object-Oriented field, ICONIX was also one of the first companies to offer training in Object-Oriented methodologies. This however marks the first time ICONIX has ventured into the multimedia arena. By offering their O-O methodology training course on CD-ROM, ICONIX president Doug Rosenberg hopes to reach a larger audience, due to increased convenience and accessibility of the O-O training: "We have received numerous requests from customers who wanted O-O methodology training on their desktop, as a supplement to classroom training. Our CD-ROM offers a convenient and economical way to get the training they need, without having to leave the office."

The latest in the line of Object-Oriented products from ICONIX, the CD-ROM training course is being offered both separately and as part of a package, as it is also included in the newly released ICONIX "O-O Starter Kit." The kit includes two ICONIX PowerTools(tm) Object-Oriented analysis and design tools, ObjectModeler(tm) and FastTask(tm), as well as the training course on CD-ROM and one year maintenance. Mr. Rosenberg sees the kit as a good, low-cost, low-risk introduction into Object-Oriented software engineering: "The ICONIX O-O Starter Kit is a great way to get started quickly in Object-Oriented software engineering," says Doug Rosenberg, ICONIX president. "With the O-O methodology training now available on CD-ROM, not only will developers and managers have the tools they'll need to get started, but they'll be able to make an informed decision when choosing the best methods to suit their needs."
