    This paper focuses on a metamodel based approach to Unified Modelling Language (UML systems modelling and simulation. The approach allows creating a system model by operating with artefacts from the problem domain. As a novelty for UML modelling, especially for simulation purposes, the presented meta-model is enriched by a set of stochastic attributes of modelled activities. Modelling process is ensured by developing UML based Domain Specific Language (DSL) that is suitable for the metamodel, where UML diagrams are complemented with attributes necessary for model simulation. A modelling tool prototype was developed with Microsoft Visual Studio using Microsoft Visualization and Modelling SDK. Elaborated models are stored in a modelbase which conforms to the described metamodel. Relevant DEVS simulation software will be developed for ability to run those models and analyse gathered results. The given approach facilitates increases of the productivity in development of domain specific modelling and simulation tools up to 10 times.

    Actual problems during design, implementation and maintenance of securities settlement systems software are achieving complementarity of several different, connected, asynchronously communicating settlement systems and verification of this complementarity. The aim of this paper is to create domain specific language for modeling of settlement systems and their interactions. Then use models to calculate settlement systems behavior. Specific of settlement systems requires that they perform accordingly to business rules in any situation. This makes use of model checking a very desirable step in development process of settlement systems. Defining a domain specific language and creating editor supporting it is a first step to enable use of model checking techniques. Created models also can be used as input for other analysis methods and tools, for example, basis path testing, simulation and as base for deriving test cases

    Information technology systems represent the backbone of a company's operational infrastructure. A company's top management typically ensures that computer software and hardware mechanisms are adequate, functional and in adherence with regulatory guidelines and industry practices. Nowadays, due to depressed economic and increased intensity of performed operations, business highly recognizes the influence of effective Information Technology risk management on profitability. The purpose of this paper is to develop IT risks assessment systems support functional model, based on analysis of IT risks and assessment mechanisms, IT governance and risk management frameworks, functional analysis of IT risks assessment and management software, and, finally, to develop IT risk management domain specification language with a metamodel that defines an abstract UML based language for supporting model-based risk assessment. Usage of UML based domain specific language achieves synergy from in IT industry widely used UML modelling technique and the domain specific risk management extensions.
