Most business requirements center around processes and data. Knowledge, expertise, and predictive analytics are typically shoehorned into a process or data definition. This leads to solutions that quickly become complex and hard to change. For business rules projects, rules analysis approaches tend to capture many individual rules. This results in large numbers of low-level rules, often with multiple versions, that quickly become hard to change and maintain. For predictive analytics projects, CRISP-DM and other methods stress the importance of business understanding but lack a repeatable, understandable format.
Decision modeling closes the gap. As decisions are modeled, goals, processes, and data come together, and there is a place to include knowledge, expertise, and analytic insights. Decision requirements model can easily be expanded in a series of iterations, allowing progress to be made in an agile approach.
Decision modeling using the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard results in a clear business target, as well as an understanding of how the results will be used and deployed, and by whom.
