Logical Data Model

MISMO's Logical Data Model (LDM) is completely different from models previously issued by MISMO and is intended to support any technology that a company might choose to utilize.

The LDM will support XML, as MISMO has always done, and will also support JSON, which is the technology of choice for mobile transactions. The LDM will make it easier for organizations to communicate regardless of the technologies they choose to use for communicating with business partners. 

Created through MISMO's Logical Data Model Redesign Development Workgroup, MISMO's LDM was built using Unified Modeling Language (UML®) 2.5, a common standard created by the Object Management Group®. UML consists of an integrated set of diagrams that helps users specify, visualize, construct and document software or business systems. MISMO has also created a set of user guidelines to help industry participants adopt and implement the LDM in their business processes.

MISMO is in the process of developing an LDM specific logical data dictionary (LDD) to accompany the LDM which is expected to be available soon. 

The LDM XMI export file is in Candidate Recommendation (CR) status which means that it has been thoroughly reviewed by a wide range of organizations and industry participants and MISMO believes that it is ready for industry to use in implementations.  The User Guide and Release Notes are in final status.  

If you are a MISMO member, an expanded package of documents is available.  The expanded package includes everything available for public comment plus a .eap (SPARX) version of the LDM; and an .XMI file with class diagrams.  Follow this link to access the documentation available for MISMO member comment: LDM Member Version.

Non-MISMO members can access the Logical Data Model here.
