I have promoted OMG technologies fiercely in Australia for over 2 decades. I have seen others reinvent the wheel instead of actually bothering to read the OMG specs and realize that bright people have already thought of most that they need.
Darren Kelly, Webel IT Australia
OMG is a place where you can collaborate to create global standards to respond to the latest trends and technology needs. The organization has always considered the needs of different regions and its members provide a high level of technical insight and innovation.

Membership in the OMG provides a number of substantial benefits. For Lockheed Martin, this goes beyond participation in the development of language and technology standards, providing opportunities for real collaboration across industry and providers that really help enable our business success and digital transformation.
Chris Schreiber, Lockheed Martin
Besides the travel opportunities, the OMG offers a unique way to interact with peers and experts in a way that is simply not possible within the typical enterprise or with vendors. The OMG offers access to others solving similar problems as well as industry thought leaders in a collaborative atmosphere. Users’ needs and perspectives then get factored into standards and products through both the formal and cultural processes.
Cory Casanave, CEO, President, Model Driven Solutions
Over the last 20 years, OMG has extended its roots from developing standards in Middleware (CORBA) to Application Design (UML) and more recently Business Process Management (BPMN), Enterprise Architecture (UPDMTM) and Case Management. This flexibility to shape standards in key technologies and industries using its strength in modeling standards is a key reason why IBM, our partners and customers are at OMG and implementing many of these standards in our products.
Sridhar Iyengar, Distinguished Engineer, TJ Watson Research Center, IBM
We see membership in OMG as a privilege, enabling our thought leaders to help define some of the most important standards applied in today's international software industry. OMG also provides the opportunity for us to work with partners competitors, customers, prospect and academics, giving us highly valuable industry knowledge and contacts, ultimately delivering real business benefits.

I have been employed by members of the OMG for 25 years. I started as a user of OMG specifications and am currently a tool vendor focused on OMG modeling specifications. As a user, I appreciated the ability to make our voice heard in the task force discussions and influencing the modeling specifications as they were developed. It was important to me to know that the tool vendors listened to the users, so when the opportunity arose for me to switch hats, I wanted to make sure I did the same as a tool vendor representative. The collaboration of OMG members is one of the organization's strengths.
J.D. Baker, Sparx Systems
Membership of the OMG has enabled Tata Consultancy Services to establish leadership positions in creating specifications for standardizations in different consultancy business domains, including but not limited to, the domains of building consultancy methods and tools (via standards like ESSENCE™), data ontologies, cloud, banking, retail, internet of things, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, regulations, and higher education.
Sumeet Malhotra, Tata Consulting Services
For three decades MITRE has found impact, insight, and value from being a Member of the OMG alongside a wide variety of industry, government, and academia. The OMG's focus on model-based interoperable standards that can enable and empower vendors and end-users with standards-based solutions is an exciting and powerful ability, shown over and over again by the standards published from OMG and their uptake and use in the market. OMG's guidance and review process brings out the best of those teams that work standards with the OMG.
