Roger Hammer, CM evolveIT product owner said,. “At BBC 2016, developers will have a chance to see how to use different levels of software automation to actually solve these challenging problems at home.”

Showcasing CM evolveIT, CM First meets with global experts on business analysis at BBC 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. CM First Group will sponsor a booth, supported by partners Axon Ivy and Semantic Designs. Ira Baxter, CTO of Semantic Designs, will also speak at the conference, clarifying both the definition of a ‘business rule’ and then how to extract them from code so they can then be utilized by Business Process and Decision Support software.

Dr. Ira Baxter will speak on ‘Automated Extraction of Business Rules and Models from Code,’ on Friday November 4th from 11:30-12:30PM. This session lays the groundwork for understanding what business rules and abstractions actually are, how computer code implements extractions and how a developer can use information flow and pattern matching to support the extraction of business rules and abstractions. He ends by focusing on what kind of technology is necessary to enable the analysis of code by tracing flows through the code, and how sophisticated static analysis tools such as CM evolveIT can enable this activity for large enterprise code bases in legacy languages including COBOL.

This ‘Winning Techniques’ session promises to be very popular for the variety of stakeholders attending an IIBA event. The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) serves the growing field of business analysis which covers roles such as business and systems analysis, requirements analysis, project management, process improvement and development.

Once attendees have learned the value and necessity of code analysis, the next question has to be – how can this be achieved? What technology is necessary to ensure that a company can get accurate results, quickly?

Axon Ivy has long been a preferred target for organizations seeking to move to a BPM and DMP-focused approach. Gartner has just released the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS) adding Axon.ivy BPM Suite to the Quadrant for the first time, denoting the solution as one of the top niche players in this space.

CM First Group brings the technological solution to BBC 2016 and will demonstrate the capabilities and efficiencies of CM evolveIT in the exhibit hall. CM First is a leader in automated program analysis, code migration and re-architecting projects.

“There’s theory and then there’s practice,” said Roger Hammer, CM evolveIT product owner. “At BBC 2016, developers will have a chance to see how to use different levels of software automation to actually solve these challenging problems at home.”

Register now for this exciting event at: and make plans to learn from Dr. Baxter and the CM First technical team. Make this the year to move forward to understand legacy code and be in a position to modernize and transform it with automation that ensures success.
