From AadlWiki Introduction Osate 2 is an open-source tool platform to support AADL v2. In January 2012 correction to a number of errata to AADL v2 have been approved. These revisions, referred to as AADL v2.1, are supported by OSATE 2 and are summarized in AS5506B. This tool intends both end users and tool developers. For the formers, it provides a complete textual editor for AADL and a set of simple analysis tools. For the laters, it provides a full support for the AADL meta-model on an Eclipse platform. Download OSATE2 comes in two versions: the stable and testing. Graphical Editor A graphical editor is available in OSATE. Documentation Editing a first AADL model: Small tutorial to show how to create a first AADL model with Osate 2.

The core The core consists in supporting the language in Eclipse. Official Plug-ins The official plug-ins are part of the OSATE2 releases and included in update site. External Plug-ins Adele Graphical Editor: as OSATE2 plug-in from ElliDiss. Using OSATE2. Predictable model-based engineering. Tool Integrators |Toolsets | OSATE. The SAE AADL accommodates OSATE, which provides a low entry-cost solution based on Eclipse and the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF).

The SEI has developed OSATE as a set of plug-ins on top of the open-source Eclipse platform to provide a toolset for front-end processing of AADL models. The OSATE front-end has been augmented with a set of plug-ins (see Figure 1), including an AADL to MetaH converter, several analysis plug-ins for performing various architecture consistency checks and distributed resource allocation and scheduling analysis.

With its unique scale-out physical cluster architecture and its elegant processing framework initially developed by Google, Hadoop has fostered explosive growth in the new field of big data processing. Hadoop has also developed a rich and diverse ecosystem of applications, including Apache Pig, which is a powerful scripting language, and Apache Hive, which is a data warehouse solution with a SQL-like interface.

Unfortunately, this ecosystem is built on a programming paradigm that cannot solve all problems in big data. MapReduce provides a specific programming model that, although simplified with tools like Pig and Hive, is not a big data panacea. A short introduction to Hadoop and MRv1 Hadoop clusters can scale from single nodes, in which all Hadoop entities operate on the same node, to thousands of nodes, where functionality is distributed across nodes to increase parallel processing activities.

SOEA – Service Oriented Enterprise Architecture: Before talking about success in the public sector it is necessary to take a brief look at what success is within the public sector – a question with different answers depending on who you ask. A manager within the public sector success is typically based on the size of his/hers budget and/or number of staff. As SOA and EA potentially promises to reduce both of these, SOA is really not that appealing to public manager. As it will only reduce next years budget and number of personal it is not an appealing career move.

However what is happening in many governments is that the public tasks are not protected by the traditional organizational boundaries – as might have been. This means that different agencies potentially can take over tasks from other agencies if they can perform the same task cheaper – which for a manager in the public sector is a god career move! And where does SOA then fit into all this? In Denmark this is not commonly seen – yet!

A Trace in the Sand, Software Architecture Journal by Ruth Malan. April 2014 It's Me Day! Woohoo! What's a Trace? My Trace is a playground for developing ideas, for exploring architecture and the role of architects. It is a journal of discovery, and traces my active reflection.

I've been journaling "out loud" here for over eight years. To get a sense of the span, calibre and contribution of this body of work, there's a selection of traces linked here.

To Solve a Social Problem, You Need More Than a Theory — You Need a Randomized Controlled Trial - Wired Science. In 1993, after five years of grad school and low-wage postdoctoral research, Michael Kremer got a job as a professor of economics at MIT.

With his new salary, he finally had enough money to fund a long-held desire: to return to Kenya’s Western Province, where he had lived for a year after college, teaching in a rural farming community. He wanted to see the place again, reconnect with his host family and other friends he’d made there. When he arrived the next summer, he found out that one of those friends had begun working for an education nonprofit called ICS Africa. At the time, there was a campaign, spearheaded by the World Bank, to provide free textbooks throughout sub-Saharan Africa, on the assumption that this would boost test scores and keep children in school longer.

ICS had tasked Kremer’s friend with identifying target schools for such a giveaway. While chatting with his friend about this, Kremer began to wonder: How did ICS know the campaign would work? The trainees chuckle. On Customer Insight. Enterprise Architecture Body of Knowledge (EABOK) | Home. Enterprise Modelling.

Infrastructure. Architecture Frameworks. Enterprise Architecture for Emerging Technology: Build, Buy or Open Source. As companies transition to more flexible IT platforms, they are searching for guidance on how to determine whether they should build their own application, use packaged applications from an ERP vendor, adopt an open source platform, or leverage a SaaS solution. It’s not an easy decision to make. Whether custom-built or vendor-based, projects can fail. Before making the transition, you should carefully consider the following differences surrounding support, customization and deployment.

All things being equal, the primary difference between open source and vendor products is the source of support. Open source support options are “do it yourself.” Open source enhancements are usually quicker if you have a vibrant community. SaaS versus installed in-house is essentially a deployment difference. You have a host of Enterprise Architecture choice points to consider surrounding the adoption of proprietary, emerging or packaged software. LinkedIn. Business Architecture Guild - Home. Business Model Gallery - The World's Largest Business Model Database. Digital Transformation — Enterprise Architecture examples. ITAG : Enterprise Architecture Guide.

The MIT Enterprise Architecture Guide (EAG) documents MIT's architectural principles and goals, the current state of MIT's enterprise architecture, and a future state architectural vision. The EAG also includes information regarding the ITAG architecture review process. Since this document serves to inform developers about available enterprise tools and services, we expect the EAG will be useful to enterprise system developers across the institute. Because this is a constantly evolving document, community feedback will drive future ITAG agendas and thus influence content in future versions. ITAG expects to update the EAG on a quarterly basis. Intended Audience The intended audience of the EAG includes project teams making enhancements to existing systems, project teams developing new systems, sponsors of initiative, ITAG Members, and DLC Leadership.

OpenDataModel. The end of enterprise-architecture? In terms of ‘means and ends’, what’s the end of enterprise-architecture – its real, practical purpose? [Don't worry! - this isn't yet another round in those interminable arguments about 'What is enterprise-architecture? '... What follows would apply just as much to IT-architecture, or business-architecture, or just about any other form of architecture, as it does to EA at a whole-of-enterprise scope.] What got me going on this was a conversation with a colleague, who was pondering whether his new organisation needed an enterprise-architect – a full-time or part-time enterprise-architecture role. That they were going to need some form of enterprise-architecture was not in doubt; but the need for an explicit person to do that work was a bit less certain. The more we looked at it, the more blurry it became. As with other ‘pervasive’ themes such as quality, security, health-and-safety, knowledge-sharing, environment and suchlike, it’s more of a discipline than a ‘job’.
