    There have been a number of solutions submitted to February’s decision modelling challenge.

  • 2021-05-05: “Compression of Redundant Rules and Other Logical Optimizations” presented by Seth Meldon, Progress Corticon.
    When migrating to an enterprise BRMS from an existing tool for maintaining business logic, implementers will often be given a specification of business rules to work from that replicate the design patterns used in the legacy tool. This can result in replicating logical problems and inefficiencies in the BRMS. This talk, inspired by the demonstration of one of these capabilities (compressing over 16,000 rules into just over 1000) in the February decision modeling challenge, discusses the ways that Progress Corticon BRMS helps rule modelers to catch these logical inefficiencies in the design phase. Recording
  • 2021-04-07: “Machiavelli: How should an aspiring prince use rules, decisions and processes?” presented by John Svirbely and Denis Gagne, Trisotech.
    “The Prince” from Machiavelli was meant as an instruction guide for new princes and royals. But what if Machiavelli had the benefit of modern modeling tools to capture his teachings? Join us as we revisit Machiavelli’s “The Prince” using unambiguous terminology and rules to define and automate decision and process models. Armed with an automated set of decision services, any layman can aspire to become a Prince. Recording
  • 2021-03-10: “Practical decision modelling in an Agile environment” presented by Nick Broom. Agile has been the buzzword across companies and domains for years now and focusing on the early delivery of value and ‘pivoting’ has become even more important given the past 12 months. So how does decision modelling fit with Agile practices? How can a complex decision model be developed iteratively so that it realises value as early as possible? How does a user story and its acceptance criteria relate to a decision model? This presentation aims to tackle these questions in practical terms using real-world examples.
  • 2021-02-10: Decision Governance“, presented by Larry Goldberg, Sapiens Decision. Today we understand that decisions made in business systems at scale determine not only the financial success of each organization, but indeed its very character. Consequently, governance over the design, testing and deployment of those decisions becomes critical to the success of the enterprise. This talk discusses the principals of governance in Sapiens Decision, and the means for its implementation.“‌‌‌
