“Effectively capturing and managing requirements is critical in any IT project. Enterprise Architects and Business Analysts gathering requirements know how to capture and document processes, data and user tasks. But what about the decisions at the heart of a business?“ said Mr. Taylor. “Businesses are an interconnected set of decisions. Enterprise Architects and Business Analysts are finding that by modeling the business decisions that link Enterprise Applications to business performance measures they are able to more fully engage and collaborate as partners with the business owners.”
Webinar participants will learn how to define decisions and what information to capture; put decisions in a business context by linking to processes and business metrics; use decision dependency modeling to implement decisions effectively; and link decisions to business rules and analytic technology implementations for rapid deployment and maximum business agility.
