Palladio predicts Quality of Software properties (QoS; e.g. performance and reliability) from software architecture models (the Palladio Component Model, PCM). Analyses enable interactive investigations and optimisations of software architectures (details in the analysis section).
What Palladio is
- Free tooling (incl. IDE-integrated graphical editors, component model, and simulation engine)
- Consulting for Industry
- Science and Research
- An open source project
Palladio is more than a free powerful IDE for QoS (Quality of Service) prediction based on Eclipse: It is the foundation of successful software engineering of software architectures with respect to performance, reliabilty, maintainability and costs. The Palladio approach helps avoiding trial-and-error-cycles and supports the creation of scalabe, reliable, and maintainable software architectures at acceptable costs.
Palladio started in 2003 as a research project of the University of Oldenburg and nowadays is a tool-supported software architecture simulation approach which has been successfully applied in industry scenarios and science – worldwide. It is actively developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), FZI Research Center for Information Technology, and Paderborn University. Further industrial and scientific partners contribute new cool features.
