Model Driven Architecture: Emergence of a BOA

At the OMG Healthcare Day in Orlando on 24 June 2004, we were relaunching the OMB Healthcare Domain Task Force and discussing incorporation of HL7 healthcare models into the OMG Model Driven Architecture.

I had a major case of "deja vue all over again" as I reminded the group how we launched the OMG Business Object Domain Task Force (BODTF) almost a decade ago. A similar strategy seemed appropriate for the Healthcare Domain Task Force.

The core strategy of the BODTF was implementing the ANSI X3H7 Object Management Technical Committee Standardization Targets of 24 Sep 1994 (see graphic above). Serendipitously, I had the experience today of finding a published paper of mine in the IEEE Computer Digital Library that I did not know was ever published. This had the 1994 graphic above which is almost the same graphic used in Paul Harmon's recent article on the OMG MDA in Business Process Trends.

This paper was ultimately published in ACM StandardView. You can check out the original using the link below:
