DMN Method and Style 2nd Edition Now Available

The link is https://www.amazon.com/Dmn-Method-Style-2nd-Pracitioners/dp/0982368178.  As I posted recently, the second edition is completely rewritten and updated to DMN 1.2.  The examples are all executable and the book follows closely my updated DMN Method and Style Basics (available now) and Advanced (about a week away) training.  It's just gone up today, and looking lonely with zero reviewers.  [...]

DMN Method and Style 2nd Edition

In any emerging area it is possible to be too early, and with DMN Method and Style, published in 2016, I plead guilty to that.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  DMN 1.1 was finalized, and the bugs that had prevented implementation of DMN 1.0 were fixed.  But it's one thing to have [...]

5 Decision Service Usage Patterns

One of the most significant aspects of DMN 1.2 is the establishment of decision services as an important and useful feature of the standard.  Decision services existed previously but offered little practical utility other than demarking units of execution within a DRD.  Today that is just one of five distinct usage patterns for DMN decision [...]

DMN 1.2: Haters Gonna Hate

Here we go again.  We saw this eight years ago with BPMN 2.0.  A revision of the standard allows tools to work 99% the same as in the previous version, but adds some new features around the edges.  This causes the proprietary tool vendors to howl in unison: Not business friendly!  Why can't it work [...]
