Back from the Future

But that's in the future. For now, MDA is a broad umbrella that covers a set of related technologies all modeling standards adopted by the OMG that support design-time interoperability. It provides companies that adopt it with the ability to derive code from a set of stable models as the underlying infrastructure shifts over time, and with a healthy return on investment from reuse of domain models across the life span of software.

In the final analysis, though, we must remember the words of Hannah Arendt (Arendt 1972), a German-born U.S. political philosopher who said:

Predictions of the future are never anything but projections of present automatic processes and procedures, that is, of occurrences that are likely to come to pass if men do not act and if nothing unexpected happens; every action, for better or worse, and every accident necessarily destroys the whole pattern in whose frame the prediction moves and where it finds its evidence.

It's up to you where MDA goes.
