Keeping Your Business Relevant with Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

If you are reading this overview, you and your organization are probably seeking better, more efficient ways to secure software investments. Predicting technology trends is not your business, but the flexibility to adapt to them is. No one wants their expensive, mission-critical software applications to be pushed into obsolescence, yet evolving technology, combined with changing business needs, greatly increases the risk of this unwanted outcome.

In response to today’s fast-paced, competitive climate, the platforms and infrastructure that you have invested in are constantly changing. If applications cannot be adapted to platform or infrastructure changes, they become redundant. Technology advances aside, the need for software that scales to changing business needs is stronger than ever and is now a necessity rather than a luxury.

To remain competitive and relevant to customers, organizations strive to become more agile. If companies want to use IT to enable future business strategy and to capitalize on emerging technologies and trends, they must first assess their needs and then make the necessary technology investments according to those assessments.

Model Driven Architecture (MDA), developed by the Object Management Group™ (OMG™), recognizes that to take advantage of new technologies for competitive advantage, applications can be made independent of the infrastructures they use. MDA was designed to help organizations rapidly adopt new technologies and concepts without necessitating a rewrite of their entire systems.

In this paper, we explore the promise of MDA, the challenges of adopting an MDA approach, and “The Borland Advantage”—how Borland can help you today.
