Value Delivery Modeling Language (VDML)

Create Expressive Models Describing Business Value Exchange

VDML is a standard modeling language for the analysis and design of enterprise operations, with a specific focus on the creation and exchange of value. Using the language you can create a representation or abstraction of an enterprise's operations, appropriately and tailored for business executives, along with visualizations of supporting detail for business analysts to link strategy and business models to the activities, roles, and capabilities that run the enterprise. The language is designed for executives, business architects, analysts and managers. Information systems analysts and designers, including solution architects, software engineers and testers, can use VDML models as specifications for the design of supporting information systems.
