Announcing the Business Architecture Core Metamodel

On Monday March 18th, the Business Architecture Guild® is sponsoring an evening reception at the OMG quarterly meeting in Reston, VA. At that reception, the Guild will introduce a new industry open standard called the Business Architecture Core Metamodel (BACM). The BACM is an open specification designed to represent business architecture domains in a formal metamodel. This new standard allows tool vendors to more effectively and more formally support business architecture practices at organizations around the globe. The reception will feature a brief BACM overview, introduce the OMG members who contributed to the standardization effort, and respond to questions that arise. Please join the Guild as we celebrate another major milestone for the business architecture discipline.

20 Years of DDS Innovation

Panel Discussion: The Past, Present and Future of the DDS standard

This year marks 20 years of DDS innovation. In two decades, the standard has grown from its first use case for the US Navy, to the thousands of sophisticated systems running DDS today. With 14 specifications in the DDS standard, there has been a lot of progress, yet there's plenty of expansion ahead. 

Please join the DDS Foundation and members of the DDS Technical Special Interest Group for a special lunchtime panel presentation on Wednesday, March 20 at the OMG members meeting in Reston, Virginia.

The panel will discuss:

  • How it all began: the US Navy's need for distributed communication
  • Why DDS has stood the test of time 
  • Unexpected use cases and applications running DDS
  • The process to expand the DDS standard 
  • What's next in DDS
