Annie’s challenge: designing software for Air Traffic Control using Festa’s Model Driven Engineering tool

To shift from traditional software development to a Model Driven Engineering approach means stepping out of your comfort zone. ICT Group’s software designer Annie Jovitha Arulanandam took up the challenge by trying out the Festa Engine tool to design software for an Air Traffic Control system.

When Annie Jovitha Arulanandam started working for ICT Group in 2017, she had more than five years of professional experience in the traditional way of software development. “That means creating lots of code that you often have to rewrite again and again,” she says. Through ICT Group she was introduced to Festa, a company that has created a tool to build high level control logic using a Model Driven Engineering approach. She enrolled in a training assignment to experience the Festa framework first hand, which meant learning a completely new way of developing software.

“If an application could be done in the Model Driven Engineering way, I would do it. The benefits are plenty.”
