Graphical decision models based on the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard are easy to create and easy to communicate. The business focused decision structure provides needed clarity and facilitates collaboration and conflict resolution across business, IT and analytics teams. Flexible enough to keep up with today’s rapidly changing requirements, decision modeling helps stakeholders focus on the real needs of their organization.

And like every other assessment of this problem, including ones we have conducted here at Decision Management Solutions, the problem is not in the data or in the analytics themselves! The problems are in framing the problem and operationalizing the results. Everyone seems to have the analytic technology they need but they just aren’t getting it to work for them.

Rules Architects we work with are increasingly using decision modeling as part of their business rules management system (BRMS) implementations. This month’s blog series will explore three key benefits of using decision modeling and a BRMS.
Join us this month for a demonstration of the DecisionsFirst Modeler Enterprise Edition Integration with IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM).
DecisionsFirst Modeler enables organizations to accurately specify their business using decision requirements models, structure and manage the supporting business rules and streamline business process design.
