Visible and Cengage Learning Join Forces Introduce New Textbooks/Workbooks bundled with Visible Analyst
FRAMINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS - December 1st, 2008 -- Visible Systems (Visible) announced today their latest publishing partnership agreement with global publisher Cengage Learning to bundle Visible Analyst 2008 Student Edition with Course Technology textbooks. Visible is a leader in the application and modeling software marketplace for 17 years and has recently released Visible Analyst 2008 Student Edition to the higher education market. Visible Analyst will be featured with Course Technology's two new textbooks: Systems Analysis and Design 7th Edition by Shelly, Cashman, and Rosenblatt; and Systems Analysis and Design in a Changing World, 5th Edition by Satzinger, Jackson, and Burd.
Since 1991, Visible Analyst has been bundled with more than two dozen college textbooks and taught at more than 3,000 colleges and universities around the world. "Visible Analyst is the easiest modeling tool to learn and use. It provides good quality and control for developing business information systems. Students are afforded the opportunity to master systems analysis and design, database design, and UML modeling all in one integrated tool," said John Nash, Vice President of Marketing. For team based projects, a multi-user lab version of Visible Analyst is available capable of supporting computer labs with hundreds of users. "When I started teaching systems analysis (15 years ago), I realized that students needed an easy-to-learn tool to help them understand and plan an information system. The tool I chose was Visible Analyst. As a popular CASE tool, Visible allowed me to demonstrate real-world techniques using a wide range of diagrams. Also, Visible is not bound to any one development methodology. I have used it with traditional structured analysis, object-oriented analysis, and as a business process documentation tool that could provide support for agile methods...To sum up, if I had to choose one tool that offers the best combination of powerful features and value, it would be Visible Analyst," Harry J. Rosenblatt, Professor, Information Systems Technology, College of the Albemarle.
