Decision modeling as part of the requirements phase or iteratively during agile projects makes it easier for business users to fully participate in Drools implementations and maintenance. If you missed our webinar, Engaging Business Users with Drools, the presentation and webcast are now available. In the webinar Mariano De Maio, CTO of Drools experts Plugtree and I present how decision management and decision modeling:
- Capture business know-how graphically and early in the requirements process.
- Create and sustain a business friendly navigational view of the entire Drools project.
- Provide a framework for growth of Drools-based applications.
The decision modeling is demonstrated using DecisionsFirst Modeler Enterprise Edition (announced here) integrated with JBoss Drools. DecisionsFirst Modeler conforms to the new Decision Model Notation (DMN) standard and you can sign up for an evaluation copy here.
