Internet Architecture Board (IAB)

Body

From Wikipedia: Internet Architecture Board:

The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) is the committee charged with oversight of the technical and engineering development of the Internet by the Internet Society (ISOC).

The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) is the committee charged with oversight of the technical and engineering development of the Internet by the Internet Society (ISOC).

The body which eventually became the IAB was created originally by the United States Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) with the name Internet Configuration Control Board during 1979; it eventually became the Internet Advisory Board during September, 1984, and then the Internet Activities Board during May, 1986 (the name was changed, while keeping the same acronym). It finally became the Internet Architecture Board, under ISOC, during January, 1992, as part of the Internet's transition from a U.S.-government entity to an international, public entity.

Systems and Software Consortium, Inc (SSCI)

Body

From Transition Organization
Systems and Software Consortium, Inc (SSCI)
:

Systems and Software Consortium, Inc (SSCI) (previously Software Productivity Consortium), a non-profit organization of more than 100 companies, government agencies, and universities, develops processes, methods, tools, and supporting services that help its members and affiliates to build high-integrity, software-intensive systems. Consortium products and services support the entire development lifecycle, from requirements analysis and systems design through component-based development, automated testing, and the integration of object-oriented and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies.

The Consortium program integrates systems and software process improvement and measurement activities with proven lifecycle development and management methods for systems and software engineering. We are the leading providers of CMM®- and CMMISM-based assessments and evaluations of software and systems engineering maturity, and increasingly help our members to leverage their investments in these frameworks to also comply with ISO, Six Sigma, and other quality guidelines.

The Consortium’s measurement products and services provide guidance and support to organizations involved in measurement programs at all levels of process maturity. From the initial stages of defining and collecting cost and schedule metrics to the establishment of a quantitative management and ROI assessment program, the Consortium can provide technologies, training, and consulting expertise to help organizations achieve business objectives through a robust measurement program.

Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

Body

From Wikipedia: Model-driven architecture:

Model-driven architecture (MDA) is a software design approach for the development of software systems. It provides a set of guidelines for the structuring of specifications, which are expressed as models. Model-driven architecture is a kind of domain engineering, and supports model-driven engineering of software systems. It was launched by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 2001.
