Oracle RTD Roadmap #oow10

The Oracle Real Time Decisions (RTD) roadmap began with a quick review of Oracle RTD (see my earlier post on the role of RTD in e-commerce) – an analytical decision service that sits between the operational and analytic applications of an organization so that operational business processes can be analytically enhanced. Crucially it combines prescriptive [...]

I am giving a webinar on “Building Responsive Enterprises – One Decision at a Time” with Progress Software this week. I will discuss how decision management improves business performance by identifying the key decisions that drive value in your business. I will discuss: The responsive enterprise The need for decisions Business rules and business alignment [...]

There have been a number of twitter conversations around the recent SAP/Sybase news that make me want to write more than 140 characters in response. These fall into three main categories: Does the announcement have an impact on those considering decision management strategies What, exactly, do mobile workers need and does Sybase deliver this for [...]

The nice folks over at IDC let me take a look at IDC – Worldwide Application Development and Deployment: 2010 Predictions. I have a somewhat narrow focus (Decision Management) so only two are really in my zone. First, #10: 10. Decisioning Products Will Be Unified to Deliver a Decision Management Platform This is obviously right [...]

Stephen Brobst, Teradata’s CTO, took open Q&A. What’s the business and architectural impact of the temporal (and spatial) extensions in 13.10? Most Teradata customers are doing temporal things but implementing manually today using things like effective date columns. This is hard work and the new feature makes it easier to manage, more accessible to customers [...]

Syndicated from ebizQ My buddy Claye Greene, Principal Consultant at Technology Blue (a Decision Management Solutions partner) wrote a great little article on Decisions and Complex Event Processing that I highly recommend. Like Claye I think Event Processing and Decision Management are highlly complementary and Claye sums it up nicely in his article: To maximize [...]

There has been a lot of twittering between some of my colleagues (@CMatignon, @mgualtieri, @johnrrymer, @NeilRaden) around rules, decisioning and CEP. As such I thought I would write a quick blog post on the topic as it seems to me that the reason for confusion and for some of the back and forth I see [...]

Last month Mike Gualtieri and Charles Brett published “Must You Choose Between Business Rules And Complex Event Processing Platforms?” In this they ask and answer a question that has come up a fair bit recently: How can you choose between investing in a business rules platform and a complex event processing (CEP) platform? The answer [...]

There has been another flurry of posts around event processing and event management recently. IBM recently announced Business Event Management about which the architect guy had this feedback, Carole-Ann posted An attempt at demystifying CEP, BPM and BRMS and Eric Roch replied with EDA, CEP, BPM, BRMS and SOA. This is also a topic on [...]

I thought I would wrap up with some closing thoughts for the week: Lots of discussion of the importance of data – understanding it, integrating it, cleaning it and making the same data available to those reporting on it, doing analytics with it and running operational systems. Interesting times in the rules market with recent [...]

An old colleague asked me to explain a little about the difference between Complex Event Processing or CEP and decision management. In particular he referenced a recent series of articles by James Kobelius in which the last one (titled Really Happy in Real Time) discussed how “Complex event processing empowers the contact center to manage [...]

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. I heard Charles talk on a similar subject at the IBM IMPACT event –Live from IMPACT – Business Event Processing. While many more business and IT people are [...]

At least it’s blog cannot. I saw this post by my old friend Paul Vincent – Business rule execution: stateless/transactional, stateful/monitoring, or both? and tried to comment on it. Sadly the Tibco blog can’t add 6 and 2 and so rejected my comment (the sum was spam protection). So here’s my comment: I am not [...]

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 [...]
