Efficiency - Benefit from improved speed to deploy, optimized resource allocation, improved collaboration and reduced overall cycle times. Teams will find it easier to take the abstract and make it meaningful, and achieve net-centric results.

  • Be efficient and collaborative
  • Easily and quickly pass along knowledge and training to others
  • Achieve efficiencies because guidance has been followed

DoDAF 2.0, MODAF, and NAF 3 via UPDM solution

UPDM is Unified Profile for DoDAF, MODAF, and NAF developed and maintained by OMG:

  • UPDM was developed by members of the OMG with help from industry and government domain experts.
  • UPDM is not an Architectural Framework.
  • UPDM is not a methodology or a process.
  • UPDM is a standardized way of expressing DoDAF, MODAF, and NAF artifacts using UML, SysML and SoaML.

cameo enterprise architecture standards

No Magic’s involvement in UPDM is substantial:

  • No Magic co-chairs UPDM activities in OMG
  • No Magic is leading the architecture of UPDM
  • UPDM is modeled using MagicDraw
  • UPDM specification was generated from MagicDraw

To learn how to benefit from our DoDAF, MODAF, and NAF expertise, call us. We have the experience and insights to help you succeed.

MagicDraw Teamwork Server

Teamwork ServerThe Teamwork Server is a piece of the software that allows more than one IT architect to work with the same model. The UPDM model is stored in the teamwork server repository and every developer working with the Standard, Professional or Enterprise edition of MagicDraw may lock a part of the model and work on that part individually. Later changes may be committed to the server and shared with the team. Teamwork Server provides groupware, configuration management, security, distributed use, parallel development, and more capabilities.

Merge plugin

Model Merge enables copying changes between different project versions. This functionality is usually needed when there are several branches that reflect different releases or versions of the product, e.g. when certain fixes have to be copied from a release branch to the mainstream development. Merge functionality in MagicDraw works both on file system files and projects stored in MagicDraw Teamwork server.

Cameo Business Modeler plugin

Cameo Business ModelerUPDM plugin in combination with Cameo Business Modeler plugin provides capability for understanding internal business procedures. BPMN standard provides alternative, business process centric, notation to model operational and resource behavior within the enterprise. A business process based diagram for UPDM describes a sequence or flow of activities in an enterprise showing how the business works. The diagram shows activities and events/data that trigger or feed business activities.
