The ITLingo RSL Language and its support by the ITLingo-Cloud Platform
Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal
Several surveys and studies have noticed that cost, and quality problems result from mistakes that occurred in the early phases of the projects. These facts have emphasized the need for improving socio-technical disciplines such as project management, enterprise architecture, requirements engineering, or system design. These studies also noted the need to reduce the efforts involved in traditional development processes, for example, by automating some human-intensive and error-prone tasks. This talk introduces the scientific project we have conducted in these last years named “ITLingo”. ITLingo is a research initiative that has proposed new languages, tools, and techniques to support users to improve such practices, mainly related to those disciplines. ITLingo users are IT engineers and managers in multiple roles like project managers, enterprise architects, business analysts, system architects, requirements engineers, or even system developers. The talk presents the innovative nature of these activities and presents in more detail the RSL language (a controlled natural language for requirements and testing specification) and its support by the ITLingo-Cloud. The ITLingo-Cloud is a collaborative web platform that allows its users to create and manage their own workspaces and includes a collaborative online IDE (like VS-Code) for supporting the authoring of rigorous RSL specifications or in similar languages.
