  • Data Residency: Challenges and the Need for Standards
    Data Residency: Challenges and the Need for Standards Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, OMG; Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management Recorded: May 11 2017 60 mins
    As data is increasingly accessed and shared across geographic boundaries, a growing web of conflicting laws and regulations dictate where data can be transferred, stored, and shared, and how it is protected. The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) recently completed a significant effort to analyze and document the challenges posed by data residency.
    Data residency issues result from the storage and movement of data and metadata across geographies and jurisdictions. Attend this webinar to learn more about data residency:

    •How it may impact users and providers of IT services (including but not limited to the cloud)
    •The complex web of laws and regulations that govern this area
    •The relevant aspects – and limitations -- of current standards and potential areas of improvement
    •How to contribute to future work
  • 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.

  • 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.
