|Interview with Richard Soley (President of the Object Management Group) about the standardization of IFML|
Between March 23 and 27, the Technical Meeting of the OMG (Object Management Group) was held in Reston, Virginia. WebRatio was a sponsor of the event and presented the modeling language IFML to the Analysis & Design Platform Task Force (ADTF).
Marco Brambilla, a member of the Scientific Committee of WebRatio, and Emanuele Molteni, VP and GM of WebRatio North America, outlined a summary of the path to standardization of IFML, which culminated with the formalization of IFML 1.0 on March 25.
IFML has been used with WebRatio Platform and there are some examples of successful cases in the industry that clearly demonstrate the benefits of the modeling language and the rapid development platform.
The interest in IFML was demonstrated by the questions of the event’s participants. They were especially curious about the relationship and integration with other OMG standards, such as UML, which are very strong in IFML.
To further confirm the standardization of IFML 1.0, Richard Soley, Chairman of OMG, allowed us to have an exclusive video interview with him. In the interview, he expressed his interest in a language that now covers an aspect of development that OMG standards hadn’t previously addressed: User Interaction (UI).
