  • 2.  Business Process Modelling (BPM) ◦ Model business processes using graphical notations ◦ Model the sequences of tasks within a business process ◦ Expected Benefits:  Great for the automation of business processes using a BPM execution engine (e.g. jBPM, Activiti, Intalio BPM, etc.)  Improved business process agility and optimisation ◦ Potential Problems:  Most BPM models are too complex due to the unstructured mixing of business logic (rules) within process models  Difficult to make (and test) changes to BPM models resulting from changes in business logic (rules)  Complexity of large scale BPM projects can often lead to significant project over-runs and project failure. Commercial In Confidence - (c) Azinta 2011 16 February 2011
  • 3.  Business Logic (Rules) ◦ Business logic (rules) are critical for making business decisions and the key competitive differentiator ◦ Business Rules are the “why” behind use cases, processes and systems ◦ Expected Benefits:  Logic (rules) are the means of guiding business behaviour toward business objectives  Can be automated using a BRE engine (e.g. Drools, OpenRules, etc.) ◦ Current Problems:  Prior to The Decision Model, there was no universal rigorous way to separate business logic (rules) as something totally unique in its own right with its own look-and-feel and its own agile change cycle Commercial In Confidence - (c) Azinta 2011 16 February 2011

  • 10.  Business logic is the means by which the business derives conclusions from facts. The simplest case is the evaluation of a single fact leading to a single conclusion Commercial In Confidence - (c) Azinta 2011 16 February 2011
  • 11.  An atomic piece of business logic ◦ Consists of zero to many conditions ◦ Leading to a conclusion about one fact type ◦ Each condition is an atomic logical expression about an atomic fact type ◦ Conditions are ANDed together, never ORed Commercial In Confidence - (c) Azinta 2011 16 February 2011
