NEEDHAM, Mass., June 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- OMG™ today announced that No Magic, Inc. has become a 2010 OMG Annual Sponsor at the tier-one Platinum level for a third consecutive year. As an active OMG member, representatives of No Magic are on OMG's Board of Directors, and Architecture Board, in addition to serving as co-chairs of the Process Metamodel Architecture Board Special Interest Group, the UPDM 1.1 Revision Task Force and the UML® Simplification Working Group. OMG, founded in 1989, is an international, open membership, not-for-profit computer industry consortium with more than 500 members worldwide, including government agencies, small and large IT users, vendors and research institutions.


OMG is most known for its standards development work, building enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies. Over time, OMG has evolved to meet the changing business needs of Information Technology by playing a strong role as a builder of practitioner-driven Communities of Practice focused on Green/Sustainability, Service Oriented Architecture, BPM, Cyber Security and Event Processing, while staying true to its standards development roots. OMG has also, in partnership with UTI, developed several certification programs, testing knowledge of UML®, Real-time and Embedded Systems, Business Processes and a new program on Systems Engineering.

"Because of our significant involvement with OMG and strict adherence to the OMG standards, No Magic is considered the most standards-compliant software company in the industry. As a result, all of our solutions bring true end-to-end interoperability to the enterprise," said Gary Duncanson, President and CEO of No Magic, Inc. and member of the OMG's Board of Directors. "Each one of our product releases, including the latest release of MagicDraw 16.8, SysML, UPDM/DoDAF/MODAF demonstrates our continued commitment to maintaining industry standards. Our clients benefit from true interoperability and increased stakeholder value by avoiding proprietary 'vendor lock-in', a major cause of increased risk and cost for the enterprise," said Mr. Duncanson. "Our onsite and online courses will prepare individuals for the corresponding UML, SysML (OCSMP™) and UPDM/DoDAF/MODAF certification programs offered by OMG," he added.

"No Magic has taken a leadership role in the development and use of OMG standards. Their support of all of our standards initiatives will greatly add to the success of the 100 specifications currently underway at OMG," said Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., chairman and CEO, OMG.
