Taking Business Decisions from Plain English Through Implementation
Your business decisions are buried in application code, making it difficult, sometimes impossible, to respond in a timely fashion to continuously changing business requirements. As a result, your organization decides to move these decisions to a central repository for easy access, visibility and traceability. But where do you begin?
In this session, we will illustrate the end-to-end approach and techniques you can use to express the business decisions and rules in plain English and how to translate them into technical rules. The process starts with working with the product owner, business analysts and subject matter experts to express and manage business decisions in plain English and ends with validating the output of the rules with the original business requirements.
- Produce a well defined concept model from plain English business decisions
- Use the concept model as an input to drive the development of a domain model
- Translate plain English decisions and rules into technical rules consumable by a BRMS
