NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 19, 2003
The Object Management Group(TM) (OMG (1) See Object Management Group.

OMG - Object Management Group (TM)) announces its first annual Model Driven Architecture(TM) (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. (TM)) Implementers' Workshop: Succeeding with Model Driven Systems, scheduled for May 12 -15, 2003 in Orlando, Fla., USA. MDA practitioners and vendors will be on hand to discuss their experiences and successes in following a model driven approach to solving business IT problems.
Sponsored by Compuware, the four-day workshop program features six tutorials that will provide an overview of the MDA approach. These tutorials will be followed by sessions and panels that describe industry experiences and practical issues related to MDA technologies, standards, and products and tools used in developing and deploying applications and systems.
Highlights of the program include:
-- Patterns and Processes for Increasing Business Reactivity with MDA -- A Standard MDA for Enterprise Collaboration and Integration with Web Services -- Cost Aware MDA: Modeling to Assess Value and Return on Investment -- Architecture Independence and Code Generation Produce Real Cost Savings -- Panel discussion: MDA Model Transformations---What do the Toolmakers have Today?
A registration fee of $525.00 includes participation in tutorials, sessions, panel discussions, daily lunch, coffee breaks and an evening reception. For complete details on workshop, program, and registration, see http://www.omg.org/news/meetings/MDA2003/index.htm.
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. Based on the Model Driven Architecture (MDA), 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, include the Unified Modeling Language See UML.
(language) Unified Modeling Language - (UML) A non-proprietary, third generation modelling language. 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 (Unified Modeling Language) An object-oriented analysis and design language from the Object Management Group (OMG). Many design methodologies for describing object-oriented systems were developed in the late 1980s. ) 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). CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) A software-based interface from the Object Management Group (OMG) that allows software modules (objects) to communicate with each other no matter where they are located on a private network or the global , the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (standard, programming) Common Object Request Broker Architecture - (CORBA) An Object Management Group specification which provides a standard messaging interface between distributed objects.
The original CORBA specification (1. , is OMG's standard open platform with hundreds of millions of deployments running today. OMG's well-established CORBAservices and industry-specific standards are being re-issued under the MDA in many popular middleware environments. OMG domain (industry-specific) standards cover vertical markets including healthcare, telecommunications, biotechnology, transportation and a dozen other areas. The OMG is headquartered in Needham, MA, USA, with a U.S. government representative in Washington, DC, and international marketing offices 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. All current OMG specifications may be downloaded without charge from the organization's website, www.omg.org; the site also provides additional information about OMG and its activities.
