MAIN FOCUS OF PRESENTATION:

FAMILIARITY WITH SUBJECT:

    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    CEP continues to attract interesting applications for operational intelligence - augmenting Business Intelligence and BPM / business process automation, and embedding business rules. Conventional decision services for SOA and BPM, using Decision Engines and Business Rule Engines, are also gaining traction to provide flexibility in business processes. In this session we look at how these approaches differ and what they share, at the modelling and execution aspects, and example application areas. In particular we will discuss use cases including real-life development examples that showed cost variations from 10x to 0.5x depending on the approach used for automating certain processes – proving for sure that any one approach does not fit all!
