OMG Adopts Case Management Model and Notation 1.0 Beta Specification
Will be made available for free public download

Needham, MA- 05-06-2013-The Object Management Group (OMG®) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has voted to adopt the Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) 1.0 Beta specification. The standard will go through the OMG finalization process in the coming months. In the meantime, it will be made available for download on OMG's homepage for the public's usage and input.

The standard defines a common meta-model and notation for modeling and graphically expressing a case, as well as an interchange format for exchanging case models among different tools. The standard is intended to capture the common elements that case management products use, while also taking into account current research contributions on case management. It will be to case management products what the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) specification is to business process management products.

"The Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) specification expands the boundaries of what can be accomplished with BPMN by incorporating knowledge worker driven adaptive work. Now customers can address a much broader spectrum of processes using a combination of BPMN and CMMN," said Ralf Mueller, Architect at Oracle and co-chair of the CMMN Finalization Task Force (with the other co-chair being from Cordy's). "We are pleased to be working with OMG and other members to drive CMMN as it aligns with our strategy of supporting the complete spectrum of processes in a standards-compliant fashion."
