Decision Model and Notation officially adopted

Well it’s official – the Object Management Group’s Board of Directors has voted to publish the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) specification. You can see the press release here. Decision Management Solutions is excited to be a submitter for this new standard. As I say in the press release:

“Decision modeling is transforming how organizations adopt powerful technologies such as business rules and advanced analytics to automate and improve their decision-making. The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard provides an open and effective specification for this emerging practice. Decision Management Solutions is committed to supporting and using DMN and we’re delighted that the standard has been adopted and garnered broad support among OMG members.”

If you are interested in this standard and how it can complement process and other modeling techniques, we have a white paper on how to do decision modeling with DMN as well as some online decision modeling training coming in February. I blogged about this DMN beta specification earlier and provided some guidance on how to read the specification (which is written mostly for implementors not users).
