Future of visual modeling

Andrew Watson has a white paper about the past, present, and future of visual modeling. What I find interesting in this paper is the strength and solidity the MOF has given the other modeling standards offered by the OMG. For example, the SysML and BPMN standards both use MOF as their foundation.

The paper also gives some interesting statistics for development projects that derive at least some of their code directly from models. Good read.
