A key benefit of implementing a Business Rule Management System (BRMS) revolves around flexibility: the ability to rapidly author and edit business rules. This year Dan Selman returns to IBM Impact to really walk the walk, building a running BRMS Demo using a scenario picked from the audience, all within little over an hour. We managed to catch up with Daniel to find out a little more about what he is looking forward to at this year’s event.
Who are you and what is your role at IBM?
My name is Daniel Selman and I lead the IBM WebSphere ILOG BRMS Rule Studio for Java team. My team builds an Eclipse-based development environment for working with business rules.
Can you give us a quick overview of what sessions are you presenting at this year's Impact?
I will be presenting "Business Rules Live on Stage!"; a PowerPoint free zone, where we try to build a simple business rules application based on requirements from the audience. It is usually fun and quite stressful for the presenters! I hope to see you at session 2198:
Program: Smart SOA and BPM Technology
I will also be helping out at the ILOG labs 2203 and 1547, where you can get hands on the BRMS products.
If there was one key message you would like attendees at this year's Impact to take away, what would that be?
SOA gives you infrastructure agility, BRMS gives you business policy agility. Do both!
What other sessions are you particularly interested in attending at the event?
I usually try to catch up on the latest developments in WID/WPS/WBE/WAS. I also want to see the Lombardi BPM tool in action. zSeries presentations are always challenging for me but make a nice break from the JEE/Java world view.
IBM has increases our focus on quality and intellectual property protection. It has been fascinating to hear from some of the great minds that work for IBM -- it has broadened my perspective, the sky seems like the limit!
