All About Business Rules: Principles, Concepts and Usage
Presented by: Ronald G. Ross
Are you up to speed on business rules as an analysis and architectural technique? Do you know the latest techniques for business-oriented analysis of operational business decisions? Do you know how to use those techniques to simplify your business process models by an order of magnitude or more?
This tutorial takes an in-depth look at these and related areas. Business rules aren’t what many people think. They are first and foremost about running the business, not designing systems. (But they are essential for that too.) You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the pervasive impact they can have on your professional skillset and business insight. Let business rule development default to developers and you’ll never get it right.
Success with business rules requires pragmatic approaches, appropriate skills, and clear vision. Whether you are new to the area or already experienced and looking for fresh ideas, this tutorial fits the bill. Come prepared with the questions you want answered!
