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.

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

This course lays out a framework to identify the op

Dean, like me, talks about the importance of the “three legged stool” of business, analytics and IT. But it was the title that particularly struck me. As Dean says, it’s easy to […]
