Modeling has always been a part of enterprise development. However, in the last few years we have seen models become more and more first-class. On some projects, serialized models are treated as actual *source code*, rather than as secondary artifacts packaged as documentation. This has been supported by model-driven development approaches, formalizations and standardizations in platform-independent modeling, improved tooling, and open-source projects like EMF and GMF. These technologies, in turn, have provided opportunities to use software development techniques that were impractical in the past, for example developing a DSL for a specific business application, and building tools (graphical and textual) that edit that DSL. In this Birds of a Feather, users of modeling tools in enterprise environments will share their experiences in this brave new world. What has modeling done for you lately? What obstacles would you like to see overcome? We'll share war stories, network, and discuss our grand ideas about how modeling may just improve the world of enterprise application development for the better. This Birds of a Feather will be hosted by Ted Epstein and Andrew Montalenti of Morgan Stanley. We're part of a team that is building model-driven tools to be used by software developers across our company.

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.
