Fully generating the UPDM specification from a model is a great achievement and we are grateful to No Magic for their thought leadership and contributions to this effort
Plano, TX (Vocus) July 10, 2009
No Magic, the leading global provider of integrated modeling software and services, today announced that it is actively working with OMG™ to develop the next iteration of the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM).
The Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) is an initiative led by OMG to develop a modeling standard that supports both the USA Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF).
No Magic has been working with OMG since 2005 to help create the initial submissions for UPDM 1.0. No Magic's flagship product - MagicDraw - was the core tool used to define the profile, and create the UPDM DMM (domain meta model). No Magic continues to release plug-ins that enhances the support for UPDM.
Today, No Magic is co-chairing the UPDM 2.0 effort. No Magic's architects are a key part of the central team that is working to align different AFs, such as DoDAF 2.0, NAF (NATO), and DnDAF (Canada). No Magic is playing an active role in all areas of specification development, architecture, and documentation for UPDM 1.0 and upcoming releases.
"Fully generating the UPDM specification from a model is a great achievement and we are grateful to No Magic for their thought leadership and contributions to this effort," said Richard Mark Soley, chairman and CEO, OMG. "We look forward to continuing to work together to advance the UPDM specification."
"The defense industry is one of the many markets we serve and we're able to apply the expertise we've garnered in the UML space to help military software modelers obtain the tools they need to develop their software. Coupled with our semi-automated generation of specific views from other views, UPDM can be delivered in half of the time," said Gary Duncanson, CEO of No Magic, Inc. Mr. Duncanson added, "We're also seeing rapid growth in the commercial use of UPDM among enterprises within the healthcare and banking industries. We look forward to continued collaboration with OMG, and we're committed to maintaining our leadership role in the upcoming development of the UPDM 2.0 effort."
