Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for OMG Richard Soley Keynotes at BT Summit 2010

Bangalore, October 15, 2010: The constant rush to new fads and fashions in the Information Technology industry have done little to improve overall software quality; and as computing moves to the cloud, apparently out of our control, quality becomes even more important. Satellite launches famously fail, medical devices famously overdose patients and engines still shut down in flight. Best practices and standards for managing, measuring and improving software implementation processes have had some success (most notably CMMI), but incorrect and incomplete coverage in the industry has left us in a mostly unchanged situation. At the same time, outsourcers and other software development teams have no standardized, widely-adopted way to agree software quality metrics with contractors and purchasers of software. Dr. Richard Soley, Chairman and CEO for OMG, is speaking at Business Technology Summit about a standard to lower costs and increase quality broadly in the software world, driven by static code analysis, software modeling and shared patterns and anti-patterns of good practice. Dr. Soley's keynote will give an overview of the process and schedule for developing the standard, and the expected uses of of the standard when complete.


Dr. Richard Soley is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for OMG. As Chairman and CEO, Dr. Soley is responsible for the vision and direction of the world's largest consortium of its type. Dr. Soley joined the nascent OMG as Technical Director in 1989, leading the development of OMG's world-leading standardization process and the original CORBAŽ specification. In 1996, he led the effort to move into vertical market standards (starting with healthcare, finance, telecommunications and manufacturing) and modeling, leading first to the Unified Modeling Language (UMLŽ) and later the Model Driven Architecture (MDAŽ).
