"BTW, a BRE (Business Rule Engine) is not necessarily a rulebase. It is simply a way to store and manage the business rules of a company. Business rules are usually simple in nature and massive in number. Excel is good way to manage business rules.…"
First, use your real name! :-) [Rolando]
Second, almost all of the manuals and text books on the subject treat a rulebase as a program that contains some kind of inferencing engine, whether it be Rete or SOAR or whatever. And it has to…"
Rule Architect / Knowledge Engineer, SME (several), DBA. Good... But you also need an EA over all of them to guide them and keep them on track. In addition, for an enterprise project, there probably would be quite a few other members.…"
"In a word, no. Business Domain Expert (or SME) is appropriate. But think about this: A business architect in regards to designing a building? No, you might have a financial expert involved or a style guide expert but NOT an architect. Business…"
On your qt of the difference between AA and ExSCG - I read what you think th difference will be. My impression is that the ExSCG will probably be more technical and could be less accessible for a broader audience (which would be perfectly ok) given the format but it will really depend. I am interested to see where the AA goes - it seems like it is setup to be more collaborative. It might be easier for me to get co-workers to look at. On a difference subject, as I work more in enterprise architecture, the more rules technology keeps coming up, which is why we will probably continue to overlap. The Zachman presentation at Rules Fest was another example.
Daniel Selman was the third to solve and first to post to ORF 2009 a solution to Einstein's Puzzle for ORF 2009. He did it using ILOG's Optimization software (and some help from some friends) and I'm sure Albert would not have approved. the first two entries (NOT programmers) solved it in 20 minutes with only paper and pencil. I'll show those later two later. Right now, ILOG's solution is at… Continue
See http://javarules.blogspot.com/2009/02/new-algorithm-from-dr-forgy.html for the write up on the new algorithm from Dr. Forgy to replace the Rete 2 / Rete III algorithm. Also, we will have a new benchmark just to test that one and others, the WaltzDB-200 later this year. Enjoy...
With the collaboration of three most excellent colleagues I have returned to the world of Quantitative Analysis and Forecasting. Finally!! Monica Adya was kind enough to send me the 1992 code that she did for seminal work that was co-authored by Fred Collopy and J. Scott Armstrong in 1992. It's all in C++ but I hope to begin by transferring to a combination of either Drools (or JRules or Advisor or OPS or JessJ or whatever) and Java. Or, perhaps, just leave the processing… Continue
We have nine "members" from outside the USA, but only eight total countries counting the USA. The count from outside the USA is as follows:
1 France (UK escapee)
Regardless, this is almost as many different countries as we had at ORF 2008. Which is not surprising since most came from ORF 2008 mailing list. Now, what we need is some "new blood" from folks… Continue
