Spot on. As the father of Rational Rose and of the UML persuasion, he'd say
Both from IBM and later this fall from Microsoft with the Oslo initiative
(successor to BizTalk and WF) we'll be hearing a lot about writing
applications by "modeling," as opposed to procedural code. Each of the
purveyors will have their own take and products to sell.
A lot of this will be hype. But part of it will be extremely relevant and
useful. The Business Process Management industry had this for over a decade
and it's extremely liberating. Yes, a lot of good things happen when you
abstract logical branching out of the procedural code, so that it is both
executable and infinitely editable in real-time. The "architecture" is the
logic flow which can increasingly be composed and orchestrated by
non-programmers, which is where the good news comes for a lot of the people
here. This will be played out in the public in the next 18-24 months.
If it didn't, you'd be out of a job.
