MAIN FOCUS OF PRESENTATION:
FAMILIARITY WITH SUBJECT:
ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Business process modeling and business rules management are complementary practices with complementary technologies. While business processes define the set of activities that need to be performed to accomplish a business function, business rules define the specifics of making a business decision in the context of a process. What is the relationship between business process and rules? How do you capture and document rules within your process model? How does business rules technology differ from business process technology?
In this collaborative discussion we will discuss how you get started on identifying, capturing, and automating business rules. The objective of the session is to share and hear ideas from others about how to get started with business rule technology. We will document the discussion from this session and share the notes with all interested participants.
