Why join OMG?

Standards are most successful when they are invisible. Doorways have standard sizes, power outlets have standard shapes and voltage, and your external keyboard and computer mouse connect via a standard USB plug. But you never have to think about a standard making those things possible. OMG drives standards related to software and system modeling and software middleware and helps define the semantics of markets, also known as ontologies. Some of our most popular standards are here.
