MetaModeling System 

Elastic Modeling Languages
Declarative models are useful ways to drive complexity out of IT application design and configuration, in favor of more concise statements of intent. Given a declaration of preferences or constraints, an IT management system can compose multiple models together much more effectively than if the models were predominantly procedural, and also formally verify for conflicts or mistakes. On the other hand, not everything can be declarative; at some point, procedures are usually required to specify the “last mile” of provision, installation, or configuration. The Elastic Modeling Languages provide a balance between enabling users to express declarative, machine-reasonable policy, and procedural know-how for configuration or provisioning.
