Object Management Group

<body> (OMG) A consortium aimed at setting standards in object-oriented programming.

In 1989, this consortium, which included IBM Corporation, Apple Computer Inc. and Sun Microsystems Inc., mobilised to create a cross-compatible distributed object standard.

The goal was a common binary object with methods and data that work using all types of development environments on all types of platforms. Using a committee of organisations, OMG set out to create the first Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) standard which appeared in 1991.

As of February 1998, the latest standard is CORBA 2.2.
