Silvie Spreeuwenberg, a known authority in business rules, published a LinkedIn article that puts in question a need for general purpose BRMS and gives the preference to business rules incorporated in specialized software products such as SalesForce. She wrote:
“My hypothesis is that business rules will not create a breakthrough in making organizations more flexible and agile”
and made several more slightly controversial statements. Silvie even wrote that after this article “some say that I am an apostate or deserter of the business rules community”.
Silvie still sees “a future for business rules” but probably not in the coming decade. What is your opinion?
