CG2007 Programme Information
Session Title Putting models (not code) at the heart of the enterprise

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 75 minutes

Session Description

Enterprise Modelling is increasingly becoming a standard technique. More organizations are modelling more of their business than ever before. Models are not limited to software systems; they include: business processes, business goals, and test cases. This presentation proposes that organizations should be organized by placing models at the centre of their business and running the business directly off the models. A key technology issue for this to take place is that generating code from models is not appropriate Ė donít generate code, just run the models!

Session Leaders Tony Clark is Technical Director of Xactium Ltd., a company that provides model based business solutions. He has over 20 years experience of software development and research. He developed a number of advanced applications for Marconi Ltd. that were turned into products. As a lecturer in software engineering at Bradford and London Universities, he developed research in the areas of software modelling and programming languages, leading a team that contributed to a number of OMG standards and undertook consultancies with companies including GEC, Tata, IBM/Rational and Compuware. In 2003 he co-founded Xactium and is lead architect of Xactium solutions including the XMF-Mosaic model based environment.
