Will Web 3.0 Finally Give Developers a Real Model Driven Architecture Solution?

In this interactive panel discussion we will explore how the Semantic Web family of standards is quietly empowering the decades-old MDA (Model Driven Architecture) community. Despite 20+ years of promises from the software community, the original vision of CASE (Computer Aided Software Engineering) seems just as elusive as ever. However, recent activities in the past 18 months at the OMG (Object Management Group) indicate that another watershed moment for MDA is upon us. So, the question remains, can the Semantic Web and Web 3.0 technology improve the ways we conceptualize, design, code, and generate enterprise software?
Our two expert guests will address these and other questions. We have the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Deborah McGuinness and Elisa Kendal, the President and CEO of Sandpiper Software.
