MODeX (Model-Oriented Data eXchange) is a model-driven solution for Enterprise SOA. Where general-purpose SOA and MDD toolsets focus on developer productivity, MODeX is additionally concerned with enterprise-scale issues like versioning, standardization, and reducing long-term barriers to system integration. One component of MODeX -- our model editor, MODeX Designer -- makes extensive use of Eclipse technologies, including EMF, GMF, and Eclipse RCP. In this short talk we'll give an overview of MODeX, and share stories about introducing model-driven techniques in the setting of a financial services institution. We'll also discuss the synergies we see between our project and the Eclipse modeling project, and how we have used Eclipse modeling technologies to enhance our own offerings. Finally, we'll point to some areas where existing modeling frameworks, like EMF, do not fit our company's needs, and what we are doing to address these problems.

Andrew Montalenti works for Morgan Stanley's Application Infrastructure group, on the MODeX (Model-Oriented Data eXchange) team. His main work-related project is built atop Eclipse Platform, and makes heavy use of EMF and GMF.

Ted Epstein the development manager for MODeX, a model-driven solution for enterprise data integration. Prior to developing MODeX, Ted developed content authoring and publishing systems for the Equity Research division and led the development team for Morgan Stanley ModelWare, a market-leading system for reporting and analyzing company financials according to a unified accounting and valuation framework.
