If standard tools do not suit your needs or your tool chain does not work seamlessly together, the development of individual software tools is a highly recommended option.
Perhaps you are also facing one of the following challenges:
Domain-specific languages (DSLs) can help you meet the challenges described above.
In this video (German, with English subtitles), software architect Karsten Thoms explains exactly what a domain-specific language is and when the use of a DSL is worthwhile for you.
itemis is the originator of the Eclipse Xtext framework. We passionately support the Eclipse and Xtext community by continuously developing the framework. With one objective: To create the perfect domain-specific language (DSL) for you.
Xtext is open source and can therefore be used free of charge.
We design your language such that it balances the requirements of the domain against usability and engineering needs.
We analyse the different tooling options applicable to your requirements, and use the best fit technologies for your individual solution.
We ensure that the languages we design fit with the business processes you use. Effective Language Engineering is about people using languages, the way they are used and the business value they add.
Processes and methods require sophisticated tool support in order to be fully effective. Interruptions in your tool chain as well as a lack of flexibility causes frictional losses and additional costs.
itemis supports you in the design, implementation and introduction of tool chains. Depending on the project context in which you are working, we propose well suited methods which offer you the greatest added value.
