Model-driven engineering

6 key benefits of Model-driven development

Model Driven Development  (MDD)  is a software development methodology that uses standard graphical models to construct a diagram and flow of processes and process steps to be developed into a system or application.

An example of a modeled business process

Here is our list of the top 6 key benefits of MDD:

1. Faster Development Time (Time to market)

Total development time using Model-driven development is faster compared to manual coding because it uses a higher abstraction level. Standard templates and processes are also available for use which gives rapid realization of requirements. With our modeling tool, models are directly executed to become a running system without media break. This means no codes are generated which require developers to program manually.

MDD utilizes agile approach which adds speed and organization to the overall process.

2. Overall Savings

Time is money, money is time and any savings in terms of project delivery saves you money.

No-coding means less need for expensive specialized programmers and with existing adapters, integration to any other system easier. To such a degree, all you need is a lean team. Easy access to adapters and integration also saves you from subscription cost on third-party adapters.

3. Common Language for Business and IT

Models and diagrams are something that everyone in the organization can easily understand. With MDD, you have one single tool to describe the process, architecture and interfaces.  It provides a clear and transparent process model and logical flow in graphical presentation which serves as the common language to all responsible departments. Hence, you can expect quick sign-off of your solution with one shared context that everyone in the team can understand and follow.

4. High Quality output

Clear and well understood requirements mean your Quality Assurance team can create test plans accordingly. With test cases automatically generated, you are sure to have high quality output with minimal human error.

5. Documentation equal to implementation

As a former Technical Analyst, I have witnessed enterprise software’s with its implemented version not equal to its documentation. This caused too much headache for both technical users and IT operations. And this is not a scenario you want to be into.

In MDD, your documentation is your model which is your implemented system. There are no codes to edit in the production environment so each necessary change is applied to the models for revision, version update and eventual deployment. Isn’t that awesome?

6. You keep your Corporate Knowledge

I have seen organizations wherein the operational processes are kept in the brain of the person in charge. So after this person retired, the organization had to take him as a consultant until the replacements became as knowledgeable.

One output of MDD is an end-to-end documentation of each project. Now, your corporate knowledge is safe within your organization, which you can upload in your intranet using different formats. In this light, new resources can be productive faster.

The graphical model serves as the business blueprint for the business and the IT Development and the IT support after go live.

6. Proactive IT support

Your client expects no less than a quick turnaround time in resolving issues. MDD offers model-based and visual root-cause analysis and error tracing, which enables quick issue resolution. In most cases, the IT will have a dashboard where they can monitor an error even before it becomes a ticket.

In summary:

MDD approach gives advantages in productivity as the model simplifies the engineering process. It is a cost-effective way to modernize your operational processes with a well documented and high quality result. It gives you utmost flexibility and lets you focus on business rather than technology.
