In reality one Metamodel to cover the entire Transformation
domain does not exist and so a hybrid approach is needed. Here we see a full
hybrid meta-model, constructed by taking the most appropriate things from
various meta-models and producing a meta-model with 100% coverage. Horizontally
- from a Structural and a Transformational perspective, Vertically - from a
Strategy to Deployment perspective.
You may be surprised that the part that Pragmatic contributes is so small. However this is
perfectly understandable as Pragmatic have
always asserted that lack of meta-models has rarely been the reason for EA’s
failure and since there are already a multitude of Metamodels already in
existence it would be churlish to re-invent the wheel so to speak. It has,
however, made a massive contribution by the introduction of Transformation
Debt™ Agreements (TDAs) that allow the exposing and management of Transformation
Debt™ and with the definition of the vessels (Ontology) that all these
frameworks co-exist within, most notably MACE and MAGMA.
However, a full Pragmatic Metamodel is in production, which
will cover all domains and all levels.
