Decision Requirements and Modeling with DMN 1.3 in SMARTS™

The DMN standard (Decision Model and Notation) has brought to decision management a notation that comes with a powerful underlying methodology. With DMN, business analysts can model decisions in a structured way, starting from the the top-level decision into smaller sub-decisions. This iterative process is very friendly and very easy to share and collaborate with colleagues.

Since its inception, Sparkling Logic has fully supported the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) Standard. Now, Carole-Ann Berlioz, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Sparkling Logic, invites you to discover the new features of DMN 1.3. Learn how we implemented them in the latest release of SMARTS™.

Features include:

  • Implementing a decision model by a context, a function, an invocation, a list, or a relation (in addition to a decision table, a rule set, or a literal expression)
  • Implementing a business knowledge model by a function
  • Additional DMN model elements, such as text annotations, groups, or decision services
  • The DMN XML interchange format, including DMNDI, to import decision models from other DMN tools, or export them
  • Multiple expression languages: SparkL (the SMARTS™ expression language), FEEL (the DMN expression language), free-form, or any other
  • Executing decision models from SMARTS™ decisions, using decision model invocation rule sets (exactly like lookup or PMML models are executed from SMARTS™)

If your decisioning projects require formal requirements and decision modeling, this webinar is for you.
