Microsoft joins Object Management Group (OMG)

Last week, Microsoft announced that they had joined the Object Management Group. OMG is the consortium responsible for many distributed, and object-oriented specifications. One of their sets of standards defines the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and I’m sure that’s the reason Microsoft joined the ranks.

Knowing what’s coming in the Rosario (and beyond) versions of Visual Studio Team System, I’m glad to see this happening, as it reinforces that Microsoft is taking their modeling strategy to the mainstream.
