In September 2005, the OMG voted to accept the Business Motivation Model as the subject of a Request for Comment (RFC).
This meant that the OMG was willing to consider the Business Motivation Model as a specification to be adopted by the OMG, subject to comment from any interested parties.
Adoption as an OMG specification carries the intention that the Business Motivation Model would, in time, be submitted to the International Standards Organization (ISO) as a standard.
One of the OMG's conditions for RFC acceptance was an explicit statement about attributes that would be required to be included in compliant implementations of the Business Motivation Model.
The BRG document was updated to Release 1.2 to include that statement in Section 1.4 of the document.
No other changes were made in Release 1.3.
As the work got underway, we posted
a PDF summarizing the status of that work.
In September 2007, work on the first version of the Standard was completed, with the acceptance of the BMM by the OMG Architecture Board at its Jacksonville meeting.
In December 2007, all remaining OMG approval bodies (the DTC, the Business Committee, and the Board of Directors) gave approval, and the OMG BMM Version 1.0 Specification was published and made available on the OMG website in August 2008 as OMG document number 'formal/08-08-02'.
Version 1.1 of the OMG document was published in May 2010 and made available on the OMG website as OMG document number 'formal/2010-05-01'.
The evolution of the BMM Standard continues, under the Charter of the OMG's BMM 1.2 Revision Task Force.
