High-Tech Gründerfonds invests in Yatta Solutions GmbH

July 10, 2009

Yatta Solutions GmbH, a specialist in model-driven software development has secured the High-Tech Günderfonds as an investor. Yatta Solutions develops and distributes UML Lab, a software development tool which offers a complete, automatic and error-free alignment of source code and models (or diagrams) for the first time ever. The model view remains the same throughout software implementation without the need for time-consuming manual maintenance of the software design. Thus the introduction of UML Lab, being facilitated by the investment of the High-Tech Günderfonds, closes the gap between the modeling and programming tools currently available on the market, thus making it possible to shorten development times by up to 40%.

“The innovative technical approach of round-trip engineering combined with the positive effect of quality enhancement and appreciable cost minimization in the growing market of software engineering was the major consideration for our decision to invest,” said Romy Schnelle, the investment manager responsible for Yatta Solutions at High-Tech Gründerfonds. With its investment, the Fund will be supporting the rapid development from the UML Lab prototype to a finished product. Moreover, it will assure the financing of the subsequent market entry. “The High-Tech Gründerfonds is the right investor for us because it places a wide network of follow-on investors and business partners at our disposal and finances high tech innovation – the expansion of our company will be speeded up through the High-Tech Gründerfonds’ investment greatly,” declared company director Dr. Christian Schneider.

With UML Lab software developers are given the possibility to take advantage of both worlds – the model view and the source code view. Yatta Solutions’ technology provides an elegant and reliable solution to the problem of media discontinuity between design and realization of software. The synchronization of code and model offers a better overview and simplifies team communication. Extended processing functions and model-based refactoring reduce development time for software implementation and maintenance by up to 40%, thus making software development projects simpler, quicker and more cost-effective. Yatta Solutions supplies UML Lab either as a standard software product via the internet or as a customized solution together with company or project specific services. In this way it provides optimum solutions for any target group, from freelancers up to development departments of large corporations. Yatta Solutions will be launching the official beta version for UML Lab in the middle of next year. Beta testers can now register on www.uml-lab.com.
