  • Systems Engineering and the Internet of Things Systems Engineering and the Internet of Things Matthew Hause,GTM Technical Specialist, Engineering Fellow, PTC and Graham Bleakley Solution Architect, IBM's IoT Watson Grp Recorded: Nov 8 2016 61 mins
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex system of systems (SoS). IoT systems include the electric smart grid, smart manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, smart consumer devices, etc. Technology advancements will continue to evolve to facilitate connection to larger and larger IoT networks and more complex devices. This will be the catalyst that will drive entire infrastructure changes to federal, state, city, and local governments, product development companies, utility and service providers, and even to consumers and their homes. The infrastructure and management will need to be established prior to, or in conjunction with, the smart systems that support them. The future of IoT success is dependent on the application of solid Systems Engineering and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principles. MBSE enables engineers to manage the definition of interfaces, allocation of behaviors, evolution of technology, and system security: concepts essential to the successful development of IoT applications. Absent of any industry standards, IoT systems would explode in chaos rather than evolve in a controlled manner.
    The Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) provides a means to develop and understand complex system of systems architectures and how they evolve. The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) supports systems engineers to define systems requirements, structure, and behavior throughout the system lifecycle. UAF and SysML combined provide a means of defining complex systems of systems as well as detailed devices and how they work together. IoT success will only be realized through application of up to date, standardized systems engineering languages, processes, and tools.
  • Cyber Security Work at OMG - Task Force Levels Cyber Security Work at OMG - Task Force Levels Ron Townsen, Sr. Lead Engineer, General Dynamics, OMG C4I and Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, OMG Recorded: Oct 18 2016 46 mins
    Cyber threats facing a nation's critical infrastructure, mission-critical systems, or any Internet of Things (IoT) system, demand a cyber infrastructure that matches their combined enormity and complexity. Risk management solutions must be capable of understanding intricate attack patterns and assessing complex vulnerabilities to give stakeholders confidence in their system's ability to withstand malicious attacks.

    Currently -- understanding, assessing and managing the risks of complex cyber and/or cyber-physical systems is a very costly and challenging task that requires the expertise of well-trained and seasoned security professionals, a scarce commodity. The traditional approach to risk assessment relies primarily on informal inputs such as documentation and personnel interviews, making this approach subjective, non-comprehensive, non-repeatable, and prone to inaccuracies about the true nature of risks and vulnerabilities involved.

    OMG's C4I Task Force Request For Information (RFI) is currently open for response “Cyber Security Protection for Front Line Real-Time Systems RFI” seeking input on a) How to develop Standards to move Tool/Integration community forward to reduce costs and focus on higher quality system development b) What area of standards can be addressed to reduce cost in developing Cyber Security solutions and designs for systems and c) What can be done to integrate current standards that will allow standards based tools to better support design, development and life-cycle support to reduce costs and control costs.

    We welcome you to join the conversation.
  • Business Architecture: Gateway to Business Transformation Business Architecture: Gateway to Business Transformation William Ulrich, Partner of BAA, Inc. and President and Cofounder of the Business Architecture Guild Recorded: Sep 2 2016 60 mins
    Business architecture has emerged as the essential vehicle to enable and enrich business transformation. Whether the focus is on shifting to a customer-centered business model, realigning business units to achieve new innovative strategies, or digitizing the business ecosystem, business architecture remains at the foundation of the transformative paradigm. This session will outline the role of business architecture in business transformation and walk through an approach that leverages stakeholder value-driven, capability-centered perspectives to envision and transform the business ecosystem as a whole.
  • Analysis of Data Residency Issues Analysis of Data Residency Issues Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, Object Management Group; Claude Baudoin, Owner, cébé IT Recorded: Jul 7 2016 63 mins
    The Object Management Group (OMG) recently led an effort to collect input from a varied cross-section of organizations regarding the challenges and potential solutions to data residency – which we defined as the issues that result from the storage and movement of data across geographies and jurisdictions. In this webinar, we will present our early findings from this study (which will be published as an OMG discussion paper in Q4 2016). These findings cover the types of data that are impacted, the regulations that may result in unintended access to the data, the resulting risks, the way data residency is governed inside organizations, and the technical solutions that can be applied in the future (assuming that suitable standards are developed). We will conclude by indicating to the participants how they can get involved in aiding and steering the pursuit of the OMG’s mission in this domain.
  • Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN Together-A Deeper Look at Process Modeling's Triple Crown Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN Together-A Deeper Look at Process Modeling's Triple Crown Denis Gagné, CEO & CTO, Trisotech. In OMG, Denis is the Chair of the BPMN Interchange Working Group among other roles. Recorded: Jul 6 2016 62 mins
    Presented by one of the foremost experts in BPM standards, this session will concretely demonstrate usage of the three leading business modeling standards produced by the Object Management Group (OMG). This session will explore the positioning and core behavioral differences between the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), the Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) and the Decision Model Notation (DMN). The specific roles and usage of these dominant business modeling notations will be explained and demonstrated using a worked out example integrating BPMN, CMMN and DMN models.
    Learning Objectives
    What exactly are BPMN, CMMN and DMN?
    When is one of these standards best suited for the purpose?
    How to use BPMN, CMMN and DMN together?
    What are the best practices for these standards?
  • BPMN, CMMN & DMN - An Intro to the Triple Crown of Process Improvement Standards BPMN, CMMN & DMN - An Intro to the Triple Crown of Process Improvement Standards Denis Gagné, Chair, BPMN Interchange Working Group (BPMN MIWG); Claude Baudoin, Owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management Recorded: May 12 2016 62 mins
    Presented by one of the foremost experts in BPM standards, this session will introduce the three leading business modeling standards produced by the Object Management Group (OMG) in recent years. This fast pace session will introduce the core concepts, differentiation and business value of the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), the Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) and the Decision Model Notation (DMN). Explained and demonstrated will be both general methods and best practices, as well as the specific roles and usage of these dominant business modeling notations in the context of business improvement, innovation and transformation.

    Learning Objectives:

    · What exactly are BPMN, CMMN and DMN?

    · Why even bother with these standards?

    · When one of these standards is best suited for the purpose?

    · What are the best practices for these standards?
