The Service oriented architecture Modeling Language (SoaML) is a new specification from the Object Management Group (OMG) that intends to bridge the gap between business and IT models. Nevertheless, the specification is very vague on the methodology aspects and practical means for integration with OMG business level languages – Business Motivation Model (BMM) and Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). SHAPE FP7 EU project addressed these issues by means of a dedicated Model Driven Architecture (MDA) based methodology and tool support. The results were validated with industrial case studies by Statoil and Saarstahl.

In this paper we focus on our experience with SoaML obtained with Statoil case study, briefly describe the developed Model Driven Architecture (MDA) based methodology for modeling enterprise architectures with BMM, BPMN and SoaML, which we illustrate with a "Discount Voyages" example. Finally, we present Statoil case study and outline the future research directions.


Dr. Andrey Sadovykh holds the Ph. D. degree in Computer Science of Paris 6th University and M. Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. He has more than 10 years experience in IT systems engineering and research in IT field.

In SOFTEAM, Dr. Sadovykh leads research activities on Model Driven Architecture (MDA™) and Architecture Driven Modernization (ADM) in a wide area of application domains including Software Process Enactment, Embedded Systems, System Engineering, Service Oriented Architecture and Enterprise Architecture. He worked as the project manager / lead researcher in a number of EU projects such as MOMOCS, MODELPLEX, SHAPE, MADES and FITTEST. In addition he was responsible for technical results as the consortium coordinator in the RTE Space (ESA-funded) and ENOSYS (EU FP7-funded) projects.

Mr. Brian Elvesæter is a research scientist at the department for Cooperative and Trusted Systems in SINTEF ICT – the biggest research institution in Scandinavia. He holds a M.Sc. degree in computer science from the University of Oslo in 2000, and he is currently working on his Ph.D. which focuses on service engineering and enterprise interoperability. He has experience from a number of EU projects in FP5, FP6 and FP7, including COMBINE, ATHENA, INTEROP, ELLECTRA-WeB, COIN and SHAPE.

Mr. Philippe Desfray is an expert in object oriented method, and VP for R&D in the SOFTEAM company. He has created an object oriented method in 1990, published three books, in particular "Object Engineering - The fourth dimension - Addison Wesley - 1994." and has conducted the development of the Objecteering and Modelio CASE tools. In 1994, he has introduced a technique called Hypergenericity close to the UML profile technique, supporting model transformations. His continuous work on Model Driven Engineering has conducted him to heavily influence the "UML Profile" standard, and to drive the development of MDA based evolutions of the Objecteering and Modelio CASE tools. Since 1994, Philippe Desfray represents SOFTEAM as a Contributing Member at the OMG, and actively participates to the UML definition, and to new standards such as SPEM, MDAC and SoaML. In particular, Philippe has been leading the definition of the UML Profile mechanism for UML1.4, and UML2.0. As VP for R&D, Philippe Desfray has participated in and leaded many research projects, which includes several European research projects, all involved in modelling related aspects.

Dr. Arne-Jørgen Berre is chief research scientist at SINTEF ICT and associate professor at the University of Oslo Institute for Informatics. He received his PhD in 1993 on Systems Interoperability. He has been technical coordinator for a number of IST Framework projects since 1994. He is involved in interoperability and model-driven standardization activities in OMG and ISO currently leading the OMG SoaML (Service oriented architecture Modeling Language) standard and Norwegian Computer Society "Services in practice" resource network.
