My colleague here at ebizQ, James Taylor, just posted some interesting projections over at the Smart Data Collective on the evolving adoption of business rules to move BPM efforts forward.

Here are some snippets of James' observations about business rules in the year ahead:

  • "Business rules are increasingly adopted as part of a broader effort involving business process management (BPM), service oriented architecture (SOA), complex event processing (CEP) and even Master Data Management (MDM)."
  • "The role of business rules as a platform for analytics, as a way to take more advantage of the data you have, is growing fast."
  • "The power of business rules and BRMS to improve business/IT collaboration... is a trend we see across the board. Companies adopting business rules are moving away from developers writing rules (though most start here) and towards business empowerment - setting up their business users to manage their own business rules."
  • "DaaS - Decisions as a Service - is another area of interest. Not only are more BRMS vendors and others supporting cloud-based deployment of Decision Services, they are also allowing companies to expose critical decision services to partners, supply chains and more."


In this blog (formerly known as "SOA in Action"), Joe McKendrick examines how BPM and related business and IT approaches can promote business transformation.
