  • Why Business Architecture Now, Not Later? A Lesson from Crisis Management
    Why Business Architecture Now, Not Later? A Lesson from Crisis Management William Ulrich, President, Business Architecture Guild Recorded: Apr 13 2017 60 mins
    The inability to track customers, partners, accounts, agreements, and policies across complex business ecosystems triggers compliance failures and crisis management challenges that degrade brand value, undermine investor confidence, and chip away at consumer loyalty. Executives have found that efforts to address these shortcomings are more time consuming, error prone, and expensive than they could have imagine. Ironically, these same executives either refuse to sponsor business architecture efforts or are forcing business architecture proponents to “prove” its value on small scale, narrowly defined initiatives. This BrightTALK discusses crisis response challenges at a major financial institution and the role business architecture should play in addressing a variety of related scenarios across a multitude of industry sectors.
  • Standards-Based Executable UML: Today’s Reality and Tomorrow’s Promise
    Standards-Based Executable UML: Today’s Reality and Tomorrow’s Promise Andrew Watson, VP of Technology, OMG and Ed Seidewitz, Director of Research and Development, nMeta Recorded: Mar 8 2017 65 mins
    This webinar demonstrates the practical realization of standards-based executable modeling in UML, showing its importance for moving forward in a number of, perhaps, unexpected areas, including agile development methods, multi-core programming and model-based system engineering. Today’s Executable UML is based on the OMG’s Foundational UML (fUML) standard, for executable object-oriented and activity modeling, and the Action Language for fUML (Alf) standard, which defines a corresponding textual representation. But this is only the beginning. Additional Executable UML standards are being built on this foundation, including recent ones for composite structure and state machines. Come learn about the growing suite of OMG Executable UML specifications, watch these standards in action and discover the promise they hold for the future.
  • What is the Best Connectivity Solution for Your IIoT Systems?
    What is the Best Connectivity Solution for Your IIoT Systems? Andrew Watson, OMG; Angelo Corsaro, PrismTech; Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, RTI; Nina Tucker, Twin Oaks Computing Recorded: Feb 22 2017 60 mins
    Today's computing infrastructure is changing dramatically to support new requirements in design and structure. This is no more evident than in the Internet of Things, where new types of machines driven by vast, complex industrial, distributed systems, can’t operate without connectivity. These new machines will transform our infrastructure into smart freeways, distributed power generation and autonomous driving cars, etc., revolutionizing the workplace and our lives for years to come.

    These new IoT systems need data-centric technology that directly addresses real-time systems to explicitly manage the communications “data model.” No matter what application – from financial trading platforms, to medical devices, to smart electrical grids, to exploration and production and to transportation – industries need solutions to find right data then communicates it to its intended destination in a reliable, flexible, fast, and secure manner.

    To learn more about the proven standard for data-connectivity in mission- and business-critical systems join OMG's webinar featuring experts from the leading DDS middleware vendors; PrismTech, RTI and Twin Oaks Computing
  • Vocabularies, Glossaries, or Ontologies for the Spacecraft Ground Systems Domain
    Vocabularies, Glossaries, or Ontologies for the Spacecraft Ground Systems Domain Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, OMG; Brad Kizzort, Chair, OMG Space DTF, Major Derrick Langley, USAF Recorded: Feb 8 2017 38 mins
    The Object Management Group® (OMG®) Space Domain Task Force completed a second very successful quarterly meeting in Coronado, CA last month during which the Space DTF approved work on several standards initiatives in coordination with NASA, the United States Air Force Space and Missile Center (SMC) Enterprise Ground Services (EGS), and the International Council on Systems on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).

    At the same meeting, the OMG Space DTF issued an RFI entitled: Vocabularies, Glossaries, or Ontologies for the Spacecraft Ground Systems Domain Request For Information. The OMG Space DTF is seeking to normalize the terminology used within the spacecraft ground systems domain. We are seeking information on existing or emerging dictionaries, glossaries, or ontologies in this domain. Additionally, the Space DTF is interested in hearing from organizations that might be interested in this topic. The Space DTF will use these responses to either adopt an existing reference or recommend the development of a new consolidated reference
  • Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling
    Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Tao Yue, Shaukat Ali, and Bran Selic - Simula Research Laboratory Recorded: Jan 25 2017 61 mins
    The importance of facing, understanding, predicting and even mitigating uncertainty has been well acknowledged and studied in various fields such as philosophy, physics and finance. In terms of software and system engineering, due to the increasing complex of large-scale systems themselves, and the dynamic and unpredictable deployment and operation environments of such systems, increasing attentions have been given to address challenges of explicitly specifying and modeling uncertainty.
    Uncertainty Modeling (UM) aims to promote and enable explicit specifications of uncertainty and uncertainty related concepts, at various contexts (e.g., developing large-scale Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, for different purposes (e.g., enabling uncertainty-wise requirements specifications, modeling, verification and validation, e.g., facilitating the definition of uncertainty-wise testing strategies), and at different phases of the development of such complex and uncertainty-inherent systems (e.g., requirements, architecture, design, testing and operation).
    In the context of OMG, we see a diverse set of uncertainty modeling applications, such as 1) integrating with UML use cases, SysML Requirements Diagram, to enable requirements V&V, 2) capturing uncertainty as part of SysML or UML models to facilitate design and/or testing, 3) integrating with BPMN and other OMG standards to facilitate different kinds of analyses and generations.
    OMG’s Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information (RFI) is currently open for responses. The RFI aims to solicit ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling. Collected responses will be carefully analyzed and will be used to identify requirements, based on an RFP for an UM will be developed. Instructions for responding to this RFI are specified in the OMG Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information document (ad/16-09-02 (Uncertainty RFI)).
    We invite you to join the conversation.
  • Introduction to Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®)
    Introduction to Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) Edita Mileviciene, Cameo Enterprise Architecture Product Manager, No Magic, Inc. Recorded: Dec 14 2016 60 mins
    Unified Architecture Framework® (UAF®) is the newest standard presented by domain experts in Object Management Group® (OMG®). UAF is a new version of the UPDM2 standard, and it addresses the needs of military frameworks (such as DoDAF and MODAF) as well as industry.

    The Unified Architecture Framework offers a structured approach for managing the complexity of systems of systems engineering within the organization in different levels of abstraction. It also provides an infrastructure to ensure complete and correct specification of systems integration using various techniques such as engineering analysis, traceability, and metrics.

    The webinar will demonstrate the complete workflow of systems of systems engineering using the UAF Framework. The workflow includes the activities of defining capability requirements, specifying operational scenarios, providing solutions for operational scenarios, and managing project portfolios required to implement the selected solution.
  • 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.

  • 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.
