Software Development Tools Service

  Eric Poinsignon IT/IPT (

In IPT Group we actively help software projects in CERN experiments to identify, evaluate, purchase and use industrial software development tools. Network floating licences are used as much as possible, so that the tools can be run remotely. We can also, if you have an AFS account, give you access to our Solaris server in case the binary for your platform is not available. You can find the complete information on what we have and how to use it at URL:

Change of E-mails

Our two "services e-mail addresses" are now in production. To contact the SDT team send mail to one of the following emails depending on your query:
To get access to a tool in production, for help and advice on any tool in production (see below for FrameMaker, IXgen and templates), and general inquiries on the service. This replaces the old address.
For help and advice on using FrameMaker, IXgen and templates. This replaces the old address.

Below is the complete list of our tools. For the latest information watch our News page which is updated as things happen:
