The BORO Methodology is a systematic process for the re-engineering of a business model from existing business materials, typically an existing legacy application. Its key feature is the ability to extract the underlying general patterns that inform the business - enabling much simple business systems to be built.

Origins of the BORO Methodology

The BORO methodology grew out of a series of legacy application re-engineering projects each of which started with the re-engineering of a business model out of the existing legacy application. The re-engineering focused on recovering a model of the business objects that underlay the legacy applications. This was typically a demanding task as there was little or no documentation, only the implemented application. Over time the approach was codified into a systematic process, originally called the REV-ENG (for REVerse ENGineering) Methodology, which is documented in Business Objects: Re-engineering for re-use, Partridge, 1996.
