OMG TECHNICAL MEETING SPECIAL EVENT
A Paradigm Shift in Software Engineering
Thursday, 0900 - 1700, June 20, 2013

Essence was adopted at the OMG March 2013 Technical Meeting as a response to the FACESEM RFP, and is now being finalized by the corresponding OMG Finalization Task Force.
Essence is also a first answer to the call for action of SEMAT: "to refound software engineering based on a solid theory, proven principles and best practices that: Include a kernel of widely-agreed elements, extensible for specific uses". See further description at http://semat.org/?page_id=792.
In the morning Essence is presented in a tutorial form focusing on concepts and principles with practical examples that will demonstrate why Essence represents a paradigm shift in how we deal with methods.
In the afternoon presentations will focus on practical experiences with the Essence kernel based approach for an enterprise method architecture and from practical experiences at Munich Reassurance and Fujitsu. Further there will be presentations on the potential for applying Essence for system engineering and INCOSE and how to migrate methods and practices from SPEM to Essence. The final part of the day will discuss how to apply Essence in new software engineering projects, and a discussion on next steps related to Essence in the SEMAT community.
