DMN Method and Style 2nd Edition Now Available

By |2018-10-11T09:20:59-07:00October 11th, 2018|DMN|

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

By |2018-09-28T12:56:13-07:00September 28th, 2018|DMN|

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

By |2018-07-17T09:04:42-07:00July 16th, 2018|DMN|

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

By |2018-06-18T16:25:32-07:00June 18th, 2018|DMN|

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 [...]

The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard is changing the practice of decision modeling and management.  Up to now, it has primarily been used to define model-based decision requirements handed off to developers for implementation in some other rule language.  DMN is good for that, and actually most tools that claim to support DMN cannot [...]

My new book BPMN Quick and Easy is now available in the Kindle Textbook format.  Kindle Textbook is a pdf-based (non-reflowable) format that preserves the graphics quality.  It runs on Kindle for PC, tablets, and phones, but not on really old Kindle hardware.  If you purchase the paperback you can get the Kindle format for [...]

Announcing New Book – BPMN Quick and Easy

Today my new book BPMN Quick and Easy Using Method and Style was published. You can get it on Amazon, and a Kindle Textbook version should follow next week.  Where BPMN Method and Style 2nd Edition was a comprehensive reference, the new book is slimmed down, focusing on just the elements today's process modelers need [...]
