Putting the Business Back in 'Business Rules' (and keeping it there) Part 1

Login or register below to view this webcast

An enterprise pursues its mission by the formulation of policy, and these policies are implemented by rules that permeate the business. But where are these rules kept, and how do they relate to the policies that supposedly gave them birth? Typically they are buried in documents, peoples minds, policy manuals, and most frequently in business system software code. And not only is their existence forgotten – but there very purpose lies buried under strata of system changes and evolutions.

Not only is this syndrome the reason for the lack of consonance between business purpose and IT direction, it is also one of the key reasons that IT projects fail to deliver on their business promise, and often fail to even complete.

In this brief, one hour session participants will learn about the best practices in separating business rules and tracing them from their source to their implementation – in a clear and practical way that is universal for business and IT projects.

The webinar will demonstrate tools to determine the right level of sophistication to aim for in implementing a Business Rules approach in a particular project, and will also demonstrate the methodology and software tools to use at particular levels of that approach including a Business Rules Management System that provides separation and traceability of natural language rules.
