Gaining Control over your Enterprise’s Modelling Environment?

In this session, we will explore the development of a modelling profile incorporating concepts from Business and Enterprise Architecture and Agile Project Management. We will then see how the profile was leveraged to establish processes to promote elements from the planning phase to the implementation phase. Included will be a look at some of the patterns used within the profile to efficiently handle the tagged values and relationships that elements’ metatypes can inherit from their parent metatypes.
