BPM Institute Live Training: Decision Modeling With DMN San Francisco

Live Training as part of Brainstorm San Francisco

The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is a standard for decision modeling in the process of being adopted by the Object Management Group. It provides a graphical notation for specifying decisions so that decision making can be modeled separately from business processes. DMN allows both technical users and business users to describe, model and manage decision-making by providing a notation that is intuitive to business users yet able to represent complex decision making. The DMN specification also provides a mapping between the graphics of the notation to the underlying constructs of execution environments such as business rules management systems and predictive analytic environments.

The primary goal of DMN is to provide a standard notation that is readily understandable by all business stakeholders. These business stakeholders include the business analysts wh

Process innovation videos from bpmNEXT 2014

I attended bpmNEXT a little while ago and gave a demonstration of Decision Modeling for Simpler, Smarter, More Agile Processes. This was a live demonstration of DecisionsFirst Modeler, our collaborative cloud-based environment for decision modeling and showed how the Decision Model and Notation standard works. In addition, I showed how teams can collaborate on these models, how they can link to implementations like business rules, manage automation choices and ensure traceability. Check out the video below or here.

Made with IBM Keynote #IBMIMPACT 2014

Marie Wieck came back to discuss how to create the kind of composable business  IBM discussed on day 1. It’s critical, she says, to keep customers at the center and drive a new process from this. It’s key to use data to make better decisions, and it’s important to have the kind of scalable infrastructure you need to make this scale and deploy effectively.

Once again the focus is on IBM customers and HH Gregg came on stage to talk about their journey. As a regional retailer they need to need to differentiate themselves. In particular they have focused on providing a “friction free” shopping experience on every channel. They have historically invested in training for their staff and have tried to bring this kind of personalized service to their mobile strategy.  They determined that it was not enough to “mobilize” their existing interface, it had to reflect the different form factor and interaction patterns. Mobile had to lead not jus
