UAF MDG Request
« on: March 30, 2019, 01:08:31 pm »
You really should take a look at the new Unifed Architecture Framework (UAF) that the OMG has come up with.  Given it's integration with UML and models that you also support, it would be a welcome addition to the Zachman Framework MDG you have currently.  I suggest you look at the specification at https://www.omg.org/spec/UAF/1.0/PDF and the appendix A at https://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?formal/17-12-02.pdf for a real eye-opener.  Please add me to a list is you decide to move forward with this.  I'd pay real money on TOP of my ultimate subscription for an MDG that implements this framework!

P.S. As you did with BABOK and the IIBA, think about a relationship with OMG for this standard too.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi Richard,

EA already implements UAF and is a member of the OMG.

We are seeing support for standards slipping within the tooling - principally amongst the MDG elements.  UAF 1.2 is out, SysML is 1.6/1.7 with v2 in Beta, TOGAF is at V10, and so forth.  is there a published strategy for uplifting the support for these standards?  Having to do more and  more work in tools other than EA and as a consequence, having to direct clients to other tools for these capabilities, is a shame.
Things will be even more of an issue with the move of sysml (and soon uml and bpmn) to a KerML based representation, so I guess I am asking - should i/we 'keep the faith', or cut and run?

No, there isn't a published strategy.

I can't give any announcements, but future SysML2 support was discussed recently.

Can I add that some of the analysis patterns, e.g.  Azure (Nov 2022), AWS etc. need to be frequently updated,
and must be able to be updated on the fly, rather than waiting for new releases.
(BTW could we please have consistent naming standards for these patterns. e.g. Nov 2022, Rel 1, Rel 5, v1.5 are not helpful when attempting to understand what the most recent version is (tip: date works well))
