What is OMG DMN, and what can it achieve for users and vendors? by Paul Vincent, Christian de Sainte Marie, and Jan Vanthienen
On the need for decision modelling and standards. Participants are the Information Day Speakers who will take questions from the audience (and each other!)
For parties interested in the DMN standard, a meeting will be arranged after the Information Day to allow potential standard submitters (vendors, consultants and end-users) to discuss their interests and, if possible, form initial submission teams.
