Business Activity Monitoring

When it’s a dashboard. I often hear people talk about fighter pilots as a model for the future of business users. For instance, Ade McCormack did in his book on the IT value stack. Indeed this is such a good mental image that many companies use it – either to promote their products or to [...]

Last session of the day (also blogged on paper) was Charles Brett on Why Events Matter To The Business and what this means for application development professionals.

Last session for me today, indeed the last session before I go home, is Janelle Hill of Gartner and Kramer Reeves of IBM on improving agility through end-to-end process agility. Janelle went first sharing Gartner’s BPM Scenario for the next five years. She had two initial points: In 2013, do you know where your work [...]

Ed Lynch, from the AptSoft acquisition, was on next for me talking about using Business Event Processing for an agile business response.

Wayne and Dan did a nice tag team discussing the principles involved and giving some Teradata-specific examples. Wayne [...]

Charles Nicholls of SeeWhy was up next, talking about Turbocharging business rules with BI 2.0. Charles wrote a nice little eBook called In Search of Insight (it’s free and you can download it here). I have also blogged about SeeWhy a couple of times – here and here. Charles defined BI 2.0 as a business [...]

Sandy is my fellow blogger- she blogs at column2 but I met here when we both blogged over on ebizQ (my blog is here). She presented on “Business Process Management with Business Rules and Business Intelligence” and started by pointing out that she has long felt that business rules are essential for business process management [...]

John Trigg over on the Apama blog had a post today – The Opportunity for Business Intelligence: Is it Evolution or Revolution? – that made me think about Complex Event Processing(CEP) and Decision Mangement. Many of the posts I see about CEP, like John’s, are trying to compare CEP with BI and so-called Operational BI [...]
