Actionable Architecture to Enable the Enterprise

MDS has served in multiple capacities


What unifies these offerings is models; creating them, leveraging them, tooling them, and defining them. Models are the vehicle to better define, unify and understand complex systems. Those systems may be physical, social, information, or application systems – bringing these together into a coherent and actionable architecture is made possible through executable models.
