We cordially invite you to join us in London for a workshop on how The Decision Model (TDM) can optimise your organisation’s management of its most fundamental and valuable asset: the business logic that controls the thousands of automated business decisions it makes every day. We will present case studies that demonstrate the practical benefits of applying TDM to the management of business logic at an enterprise scale. Three practitioners will discuss key challenges of applying decision management and TDM and how to overcome them.

You can find out more about the workshop here.

Learn how TDM Enables your Organisation to Manage Business Logic

Understand, from case studies, how organisations can avoid the pitfalls of and move beyond the benefits offered by traditional business rules approaches. Experience the power of business decisions – a much more compelling discipline through which organisations can master their business logic.

Specifically we will demonstrate how:

  • to use TDM to analyse and model business decisions as a scalable, coordinated structure of cooperating business rules with explicit dependencies and precise meaning.
  • to test and evolve the business logic.
  • decisions lead to superior integration of business logic with business process and goals which leads to decisions that can monitor their own effectiveness.
  • TDM can deliver business agility and scalable, rigorous, enterprise decision management in a manner business rules alone cannot.
