Decision Modeling is Evolving 


We recently learned that the IIBA Object Management Group (OMG) voted to publish a new Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard.  Around that time, the BABOK update team accepted decision modeling as a technique to be included in the new BABOK.   That change removed the use of process to describe decision-making logic.
The first Decision Model that will be discussed in this presentation was introduced to the public in 2009.  By 2013, it was in operation around the world.  An emerging model for detecting events of business interest will also be explored.

In this presentation, you will learn:

• Why and how The Decision Model is operating in production worldwide

• How to build a decision model

• What the new OMG DMN standard contains and who created it

• What the Event Model is and why we need it

• Where decision modeling is going from here
