Workshop on Architecture-Driven Modernization
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2004
Object Management Group(TM) (OMG (1) See Object Management Group.
(2) "Oh my God!" See digispeak.
OMG - Object Management Group (TM)) today announced the program for its premiere workshop on Architecture-Driven Modernization (ADM): "A Model-driven Approach to Modernizing IT Systems." Sponsored by ASG Software Solutions, Klocwork, and Relativity Technologies, the workshop will take place March 22-24, 2004 in Chicago, IL, USA. The three-day workshop will feature three tutorials as well as presentation tracks and panels that will explore concepts related to understanding, improvement, redesign, migration and redeployment of existing systems. The complete program and registration page can be found at http://www.omg.org/news/meetings/ADM2004/index.htm.
The tutorials will address the topics of application knowledge reclamation and transformation, managing code at the model level rather than the code level, and the basic concepts of architecture re-factoring. In addition, the themed tracks, "ADM Technical Approaches" and "Practice and Experience," will address diverse topics such as processes and tools supporting system architecture analysis, and design and experience reports from ADM-related projects.
Targeted at both tool vendors and users of modernization tools, two panel discussions will tackle the value of OMG's ADM standardization efforts and requirements for next-generation ADM tools, respectively. It will be beneficial for this audience to explore the outlook of the software transformation industry, and the ways in which the forthcoming OMG specifications to be recommended by the Architecture-Driven Modernization Platform Task Force can change the industry landscape. Integrations of existing tools and cross-pollination between existing methodologies will be discussed and users of modernization tools will be encouraged to present their views on the desired direction for the next generation tools.

About The OMG
With well-established standards covering software from design and development, through deployment and maintenance, and extending to evolution to future platforms, the Object Management Group (OMG) supports a full-lifecycle approach to enterprise integration which maximizes ROI (Return On Investment) The monetary benefits derived from having spent money on developing or revising a system. In the IT world, there are more ways to compute ROI than Carter has liver pills (and for those of you who never heard of that expression, it means a lot). , the key to successful IT. OMG's standards cover multiple operating systems, programming languages, middleware and networking infrastructures, and software development environments. OMG's Modeling standards, the basis for the MDA (1) (Monochrome Display Adapter) The first IBM PC monochrome video display standard for text. Due to its lack of graphics, MDA cards were often replaced with Hercules cards, which provided both text and graphics. See PC display modes and Hercules Graphics. , include the Unified Modeling Language See UML.

The Unified Modeling Language is an open method used to specify, visualise, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system (UML) and Common Warehouse Metamodel For other uses of "CWM", see CWM (disambiguation).
The Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) is a specification for modeling metadata for relational, non-relational, multi-dimensional, and most other objects found in a data warehousing environment. (CWM).

The original CORBA specification (1. , is OMG's standard open platform with hundreds of millions of deployments running today.
Headquartered in Needham, MA, USA, with a U.S. government representative in Washington, DC, and international marketing representatives in Japan, the UK, and Germany, the Object Management Group is an international, open membership, not-for-profit computer industry specifications consortium. OMG member companies write, adopt, and maintain the organization's standards following a mature, open process.
