Live Tutorial: Decision Modeling with DMN: Extending BPMN to Decisions, Business Rules and Analytics

I am giving a tutorial on Decision Modeling with DMN: Extending BPMN to Decisions, Business Rules and Analytics at this year’s Building Business Capability conference in the afternoon of Sunday November 2.

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.

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.”
