I'm off to give a presentation on DSI and SDM this afternoon and so have been doing a ton of prep. At the same time there is a lot of discussion inside Microsoft about what architectural guidance that we can give on top of DSL's, SOA and DSI. We have MSF and MOF today but it seems to me that they don’t meet quite what is needed and will certainly need some changes as things like Modelling, SOA and DSI (MSD) take off.
At the same time I look at what I do across heterogeneous applications with things like my Lightweight Architectural Design Process (LADP) and these just don’t seem to fit very well with a heavyweight MSD approach. I think I will bounce this off my audience this afternoon to see what they think.
That's the joy of my approach to presentations, I don’t pretend to know the answers so I can ask the audience; as they are normally smarter than I am they come up with great ideas that I can use!
