The Nuts and Bolts of Business Object Modeling

Brian Berenbach

Object Technology has increased in popularity recently, partially because of its use in the business community for process re-engineering. It has also gained favor with software architects as a paradigm for designing multi-tiered client server architectures. This seminar will review the latest techniques in business object modeling using real- world examples from re-engineering and design projects, including Jacobson Use cases, Scenario diagrams and Object models. It will survey all the necessary steps (sometimes left out of methodology texts) to go from the analysis of business processes to operational software. The seminar will provide insight into the following areas:

The talk should be of interest to anyone involved in business process improvement, re-engineering, software architecture or programming.
