Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM)

The Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) is an OMG initiative that supports both the US Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DoDAF) and the UK’s Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF). It standardizes the architecture definition language representation for both DoDAF and MODAF and will result in significant improvements in the consistency, quality and tool interoperability of enterprise architectures that comply with these frameworks.


Visumpoint served as active members of the UPDM Group and contributing authors to the OMG standard. Our intimate knowledge of UPDM prompted us to develop a profile that implements the specification. Visumpoint’s UPDM profile produces DoDAF and MODAF compliant views and work products and establishes the basis for analysis that supports decision-making processes throughout the Department of Defense.


Visumpoint provides UPDM mentoring, training and consulting services. We are adept at using UPDM to meet the technical and architectural requirements necessary for DoDAF and MODAF compliance.
