Product description

Review

This is an important book: it has important things to say about an especially important set of real-world problems―business rules … The authors weave their business rule methodology together with the whole complex of other major business/technology areas, including business decision models, business process management, SOA, and requirement definitions … shows how a new way of using rules located in a common evaluation module can greatly simplify a business process and make it far easier to modify when the need arises.
―From the Foreword by Ken Orr, Topeka, Kansas

… one of the classic books of a new era in computing …
―Opher Etzion, IBM Research Laboratory Haifa

… a significant addition to our industry’s body of knowledge.
―Dave Hay, Capgemini Financial Services and Bestselling Author

… on the mark … a roadmap to successful use of business rules.
―Arne Herenstein, Insurance Industry Executive

… a new approach to improve the elicitation and quality of functional requirements and corresponding test cases in the development of systems .
―William D. Miller, Stevens Institute of Technology

… may very well change the way we define information systems in the future.
―Nadav Nahshon, Enterprise Data Architect

I expect the Decision Model to inspire developers of business rule mining and authoring technologies for years to come.
―Mannes Nauer, Software Expert

… a must for all of us who wish to break down our business rules and integrate them into the rest of our metadata systems.
―Robert Schork, DAMA-NJ and Meta-Data Professional Organization

… explains how to apply the model to directly benefit requirements planning, business processes, enterprise architecture and enterprise decision-making.
―Robert S. Seiner, KIK Consulting and TDAN.com

… covers the full spectrum of what you need to know when adopting decision management.
―Carole-Ann Matignon, FICO

… provides a framework and model that takes our field to the next level …
―Len Silverston, Bestselling Author

… presents a formal, and yet practical, model for business logic and business rules …
―Andrew Spanyi, Bestselling Author

I suspect this will be the handbook in this area for quite some time and a must read for all levels in IT today.
―Thomas Wolfe, Capricorn Technology Group
