Aiming at solving the problem that existing model driven architecture (MDA) cannot provide effective guidance in business modeling and requirement modeling stages of developing management information system (MIS) software, this paper presented a business-model driven architecture for developing MIS software by introducing a business model component into current MDA framework. In the presented architecture, the business model consists of four types of sub-models: organization model, business process model, activity model and business document model. The relations among these sub-models were discussed and a roadmap from business model to platform specific model (PSM) was given. Then, an integrative, business-oriented meta-model for developing business-model driven MIS software was defined.
