This white paper explains how a business rule management system can make business process automation easier to understand, maintain and manage. Compare BRMS with other business automation schemes, like traditonal software coding or standard business rule engines. Learn how the Welsh Assembly Government and a United States commercial lender have implemented business rules to make a difference in their business processes.
Drive quality earlier in the development process with continuous testing.
Large development organizations have increasingly been adopting select agile practices to enable faster development, create more reliable software, and reduce costs. Chief among these practices is providing developers early and frequent feedback from users, from other developers, and especially from the programming, build, and test tools. In the latter category, continuous integration and continuous testing are emerging as valuable techniques for identifying errors early so they can be corrected immediately by the developer who made the code changes.
We’re experiencing a data explosion. By 2020 the data we create and copy annually will reach 44 trillion gigabytes.1 As this data disseminates into the workplace, companies add hardware and software systems to store, protect and manage it all. While data can help solve business problems, data is most helpful when it reaches those who can use it. Companies need to build Microsoft SharePoint apps that integrate with other line-of-business (LOB) systems so users can take full advantage of this data explosion.
But the reality of creating apps that integrate data across organizational systems presents an intimidating challenge. To integrate multiple isolated data sources into an application that transforms data into useful information requires technical expertise, coding and ongoing maintenance. Integration also raises security and governance concerns. So it’s no surprise that only 47 percent of SharePoint users have connected their SharePoint apps with other systems.2 As a result, nearly
In today’s world, the data is flowing from all directions: social media, phones, weather, location and sensor equipped devices, and more. Competing in this digital age requires the ability to analyze all of this data, and use it to drive decisions that mitigate risk, increase customer satisfaction and grow revenue. Using a combination of proprietary software and open source technology can give your data scientists and statisticians the analytical power they need to find and act on insights quickly.
IBM® SPSS® Statistics provides all of the data analysis tools you need, and integrates with thousands of R extensions for maximum power and flexibility. In this next Data Science Central Webinar event, we will show how SPSS Statistics can help you keep up with the influx of new data and make faster, better business decisions without coding.
With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.
