Extended Abstract:
When the Object Management Group (OMG) was founded in 1989, the focus was square on object-oriented personal computer desktops. The organization quickly morphed its focus to distributed, object-oriented computing; then to modeling; then to many vertical markets, using a trailblazing standardization process different from any that had come before, walking the tightrope from letting the market define standards without any collaboration, to predefining all standards before any products are taken to market. A thousand standards processes and more than a quarter century later, OMG is a well-established and broadly recognized member of the ICT community in more than fifty countries.
It turns out, however, that the real focus of the organization is community; understanding communities' needs; creating an open, neutral, international process to fulfill those needs; and facilitating the carrying out of the process. Since 2000, the OMG has created such communities as the Eclipse Foundation, the SOA Consortium, the BPM Consortium, the Cloud Council, and others, with varying levels of success. Dr. Soley will review OMG's history, mention some of the current projects like the Industrial Internet Consortium, and take a peek into the future.
