Teamwork Cloud is No Magic's next generation repository for collaborative development and version model storage. It is envisioned and architected to provide significant future improvements in the areas of model-governance, model analysis and integration with third-party tools. As the name suggest, this server is Cloud-ready, that can be deployed on a local hardware (VM) or on a Cloud.
Among the major new features are Element-level versioning and Role Based Access Control that enables efficient management of users' access rights across the enterprise. Because distributed systems can be challenging to administer, we have built a convenient web-based administrative interface. This provides a single way to manage user accounts, access control, LDAP integration, secured connection, and project configuration.
Teamwork Cloud is designed from the ground up to support working with large models. The efficient delta-based protocol is used when users commit and retrieve updates to a model saving time for users who access the repository through poor network connections. Likewise, as the amount of data that is transmitted depends only on the size of a change being made, users who work on this server will find it easy to exchange data with team members directly. Teamwork Cloud provides a central repository for storing any type of Cameo and MagicDraw models. Keeping data in Teamwork Cloud, team members can read and modify the same model or even the same diagram at the same time.
