New Cradle Products

3SL is pleased to announce that with the release of Cradle-6.8 announced elsewhere in this newsletter, we have substantially widened the Cradle product range with a range of new and exciting products that are designed to broaden Cradle’s appeal to new groups of users!

The multi-user form of Cradle that has been so widely adopted by Governments, industry and academia has been renamed Cradle Enterprise. This new product name is shown in the bottom-left corner of the tool UIs:

Cradle Enterprise

and in the Help → About screens:

About Workbench

The colour and product name will identify the Cradle product that you are using.

Selecting the information icon next to the Product: field will display a small dialog that summarises the main characteristics of the Cradle product. For Cradle Enterprise, this dialog contains:

Product Information

The behaviour, pricing and support services of Cradle Enterprise are unchanged from previous releases.

We have introduced a range of new Cradle variants:

These products are intended for those for whom the full Cradle Enterprise product may not have been appropriate, either because it contains functionality that is not needed, or because of its scalability and cost.

We expect the new products to be of interest to:

These are very low cost products. Examples prices are:

Despite their low cost, these products contain most of the functionality from Cradle Enterprise, which means that they are, without doubt, the most capable requirements management and full lifecycle systems engineering tools available.

The software in these new products is identical to that in Cradle Enterprise, so these new products are installed in the same way and are used in exactly the same manner as Cradle Enterprise. It is only the licence encoded in a Security Code that distinguishes these new products from Cradle Enterprise, which means that upgrading is simply a matter of purchasing appropriate licences, receiving a new Security Code from 3SL and installing it.

Because these products are low cost, we expect that most customers will not want to process orders through the normal Purchase Order, invoice and payment route:
