Sandy Kemsley (of column2.com fame) and I are doing some research into the potential for BPM and Decision Management technology in mobile application development. As part of this research we are gathering information on the use, development and support of mobile applications and we would like your help – we would like you to take our survey: [...]

Quick thoughts on IBM and Lombardi

I have been out this week visiting clients and prospective clients on the east coast and so not blogging much. While I was gone IBM announced its acquisition of Lombardi. Now I don’t have much to add to Sandy Kemsley’s excellent post on the topic except to say that Lombardi has also been virulently anti-business [...]

I gave a keynote at the Business Rules Forum today on Smarter systems for uncertain times.  I gave the presentation without slides and had planned to use my notes as a post but, as the notes ran to 5,000 words, I have decided to write a white paper based on them instead! To keep you [...]

The second full day of the Business Rules Forum/Enterprise Decision Management Summit is over and once again I have been taking notes rather than blogging live. Once again there were some great sessions – today I heard Steve Hendrick of IDC, Sandeep Gupta of Equifax, Chaitan Sharma of DAASL, Zach Springborn of OneData and Mo [...]

It’s the end of day 1 of the Business Rules Forum/Enterprise Decision Management Summit and time to write a wrap up post for the day – no live blogging today as I have too much on as track chair to sit behind my keyboard! Today I got to attend Jim Sinur’s keynote and sessions from [...]

The Page 123 Linkfest

I discovered over the weekend that there is a game called “What’s On Page 123” that involves bloggers tagging each other. As Ken Molay, an old friend who writes the Webinar blog tagged me I now have to post to keep it going. The deal is that you have to write about the book you [...]

If, like me, you could not make it to the Gartner BPM Summit last week, here’s the next best thing. Three people I know well blogged about the conference. Sandy Kemsley, an independent expert on BPM, was the most thorough with David Straus (of Corticon) posting several times and a single post from Jim Sinur [...]

Mark Proctor, he of Drools fame, posted today on his vision for unifying rules and processes. Not content with describing me as “large” and “infamous” in a previous post, now he has to get my blood pressure up with this new post! Seriously, though, I am going to disagree with Mark’s basic premise. For starters, [...]
