I am talking about the sixth item from my earlier post

In a nutshell...

Oslo initiative (Microsoft Modeling Platform for 10x development productivity) took several directions and finally ended up being just a DSL toolkit for “SQL Server Modeling”.

Initially the scope of Oslo was broad in terms of brining both Business and IT closer by modeling all entities (both physical and logical) together in a heterogeneous enterprise environment.

But now it seems, Microsoft narrowed down the scope to just a DSL toolkit for SQL Server Models.

So, most of the promises that have been made are gone now... (may be Microsoft is thinking a better modeling platform for Enterprise! just guessing!!!)

The toolset (“M” language (name will be changed as the language name is already registered), Quadrant and Repository) remains the same and now they will be part of SQL Server product as a modeling toolkit in future...

What does it means to you?

If you were interested in Oslo enterprise capabilities earlier, then wait for few more years to see further promises J

But if you are still excited about the “Data” part (which is the best thing left out, though...), concentrate on Microsoft Data Platform and how you can leverage DSLs in Data platform (ADO.NET (Framework/Entity Framework, Services), Velocity etc) and check below links..
