Despite much growth in SOA, BPM, and EDM technology, there remains an important missing link, the Decision Model. Introduced in this book, the Decision Model adds simplicity and rigor to the way we view, leverage, and automate business rules in much the same way as the Relational Model did for data. The first to reveal a model of business logic, complete with a well-defined structure and three forms of normalization, structural and integrity principles, this book has the potential to emerge as a classic reference. This groundbreaking work can change the game between business managers and IT professionals and deliver a foundation for a new generation of software.

In the current fast-paced and constantly changing business environment, it is more important than ever for organizations to be agile, monitor business performance, and meet with increasingly stringent compliance requirements. Written by pioneering consultants and bestselling authors with track records of international success, The Decision Model: A Business Logic Framework Linking Business and Technology provides a platform for rethinking how to view, design, execute, and govern business logic. The book explains how to implement the Decision Model, a stable, rigorous model of core business logic that informs current and emerging technology.

The authors supply a strong theoretical foundation, while succinctly defining the path needed to incorporate agile and iterative techniques for developing a model that will be the cornerstone for continual growth. Because the book introduces a new model with tentacles in many disciplines, it is divided into three sections:

Section 1: A Complete overview of the Decision Model and its place in the business and technology world

Section 2: A Detailed treatment of the foundation of the Decision Model and a formal definition of the Model

Section 3: Specialized topics of interest on the Decision Model, including both business and technical issues

The Decision Model provides a framework for organizing business rules into well-formed decision-based structures that are predictable, stable, maintainable, and normalized. More than this, the Decision Model directly correlates business logic to the business drivers behind it, allowing it to be used as a lever for meeting changing business objectives and marketplace demands. This book not only defines the Decision Model and but also demonstrates how it can be used to organize decision structures for maximum stability, agility, and technology independence and provide input into automation design.
