Dr. Richard Mark SoleyDr. Richard Mark Soley

As Chairman and CEO of OMG, 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 CORBA® 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 TM (UML®) and later the Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®). He also led the effort to establish the SOA Consortium in January 2007, leading to the launch of the Business Ecology Initiative (BEI) in 2009. The Initiative focuses on the management imperative to make business more responsive, effective, sustainable and secure in a complex, networked world, through practice areas including Business Design, Business Process Excellence, Intelligent Business, Sustainable Business and Secure Business.

In addition, Dr. Soley is the Executive Director of the Cloud Standards Customer Council, helping end-users transition to cloud computing and direct requirements and priorities for cloud standards throughout the industry.

Dr. Soley also serves on numerous industrial, technical and academic conference program committees, and speaks all over the world on issues relevant to standards, the adoption of new technology and creating successful companies. He is an active angel investor, and was involved in the creation of both the Eclipse Foundation and Open Health Tools.

Previously, Dr. Soley was a cofounder and former Chairman/CEO of A. I. Architects, Inc., maker of the 386 HummingBoard and other PC and workstation hardware and software. Prior to that, he consulted for various technology companies and venture firms on matters pertaining to software investment opportunities. Dr. Soley has also consulted for IBM, Motorola, PictureTel, Texas Instruments, Gold Hill Computer and others. He began his professional life at Honeywell Computer Systems working on the Multics operating system.

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A., Dr. Soley holds bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Modeling and the Cloud

Cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud, cloud. Twice the hype, but less filling. Unfortunately, “cloud computing” has become the IT flavor “du jour” and you can count on many offerings suddenly incorporating the word “cloud” in their products, though it may be unclear precisely why (cloudiness apparently can have an effect on product descriptions).  This is a real pity, since cloud computing does bring together a lot of very good ideas and presents true opportunities to IT organizations large and small.

As an organization dedicated to open, transparent, useful and well-implemented standards, OMG has historically focused on how to build standards that add value for end-users and vendors, and since 2000 that focus has centered on modeling.  How does the advent and wide adoption of cloud computing depend on, and affect, the use of modeling?  What do UML, BPMN, SysML and so forth have to do with modeling?  Dr. Soley will discuss the value of modeling for cloud implementation; OMG’s focus areas for cloud computing; and the Cloud Standards Customer Council, recently created to bring together end-users to share cloud adoption stories (both successful and not-so-successful) and to develop requirements and priorities for standards necessary to make successful transition to the cloud possible.
