Keith Swenson on Model-Preservation vs. Model-Transformation

Keith has put out a series of articles (possibly more to come) that lay down a great marker for how to evaluate Modeling strategies and how these approaches compare (strengths and weaknesses of each, across several dimensions). It started with this post, which set the table for further discussion. Following that were posts on Analytics, Round-tripping, Performance, and Simulation. I recommend reading them all if you want a better understanding of some of the BPMN – BPEL debates (without even mentioning those terms), and understanding implicit tradeoffs in a product that the vendor may not (or may not be able to) articulate explicitly.

    Scott, I wanted to thank you for the excellent coverage and interpretation of the ideas from my posts. I would like to mention that when I was writing these I remember browsing through your older blog posts to confirm my ideas. Thanks for keeping this excellent blog.

  • Keith, thanks, very kind of you to say this. I liked the very logical organization of your posts, taking each concern separately for examination against the two basic strategies. It was hard to resist reacting to your thoughts and borrowing your organization to do so- great food for thought, I think. Good to hear that my posts were received in the same spirit that they were written, and thank you for helping put these issues under a brighter light.
