  • 3. Introduction: the TEAP Project  TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Platform – Lightweight framework + methodology  Reverse engineering  Governance  Modernization  Collaborative industrial project  4 partners, 2 years, +2,636,000€ in total 3© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
  • 4. Introduction: the TEAP Partners  Obeo – SME expert in MDE and software life cycles, – Project leader and tool developer  Capgemini – Consulting and service group – EA expert and service provider  Inria - AtlanMod – Research team in MDE and its applications – Scientific advisor and support  DCNS – Leading company in military ships and energy – EA industrial scenarios provider 4© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
  • 5. Enterprise Architecture: Overall Context  Enterprise Architecture implications – Representation (via “models”) of the organization systems – Handling of many different aspects of an organization  Connection with MDO is evident!  Different standards/frameworks – Zachman Framework – U.S. DoDAF & British MoDAF – Open Group ArchiMate – Open Group TOGAF (as used in TEAP) 5© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
  • 6. Enterprise Architecture: Some Identified Problems  Obtain an initial representation of the system from relevant available resources  Follow a standard representation, interoperable but flexible/adaptable too  Support different views over this representation (several viewpoints/aspects) 6© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr TEAP EA model- based solution Heterogeneous Data Sources Federation Multiple Views/Viewpoints Support Metamodels Adaptation & Traceability

  • 8. The TEAP MDE Framework for EA: Details  Metamodeling & Model Handling – Eclipse EMF  Model Storage/Distribution – Eclipse CDO  Model Comparison/Merge – Eclipse EMF Compare  Model Discovery – Eclipse MoDisco (+ others)  Model Transformation – Eclipse ATL and Java/EMF  Model Virtualization/Weaving – Virtual EMF  Graphical Model Editing – Obeo Designer 8© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr

  • 15. Conclusion: Present Situation  3 model-based approaches to EA problems – Model Driven Federation of Heterogeneous Data Sources  Partly integrated (Excel support, support for other data sources to come) – Model Driven Adaptability  To be integrated (virtualization solution existing, actual integration to come) – Multiple Views/Viewpoints Over a Central Repository  Integrated (via Obeo Designer) 15© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
  • 16. Conclusion: Summary  MDE brought some benefits in this context of Enterprise Architecture (MDO) – Heterogeneity, Adaptability, Visualization  But, improvements are still required from the MDE side to satisfy EA-MDO needs!  So, EA (MDO) also brought some benefits to the current MDE techniques! – Coverage, Integration, Target (user vs. tool) 16© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
  • 17. Conclusion: Research Challenges  Identified shortcomings/issues – Model Driven Federation of Heterogeneous Data Sources  Different sources than in standard MDRE processes (e.g., nature, structure) – Model Driven Adaptability  Usability of model virtualization in already existing solutions (e.g., metamodel-level) – Multiple Views/Viewpoints Over a Central Repository  Concrete Syntax vs. Tooling (best representation for a given user/scenario…) 17© AtlanMod - atlanmod-contact@mines-nantes.fr
