Aplication scope of MDE
MDE is not restricted to software engineering. Like object technology in the 80’s, it may apply to a number of different fields related to IT.
This has many consequences. Usually one believes models are models of the code, or models that can be transformed into code, or models that can contribute to code, or models that can be extracted from code. But probably in some times it will appear that models of data are at least as important as models of code. MDE is probably going to have an impact more important on data engineering than on software engineering.
