International workshop on Decision-oriented Business Applications: Experiences and Challenges
(workshop co-located with the 13th The IEEE Conference on Commerce and Enterprise Computing (CEC'11), Luxembourg, September 5-7, 2011)
CANCELLED. Due to the number of submissions, this event has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Description of the Workshop
Decision-oriented applications are complex due to the underlying business policies and require the participation of many stakeholders, from business experts over analysts to IT developers. In current practice, business users do not own their applications, as their construction and maintenance inevitably require having other agents involved. In the recent years, progress has been made in standardization of modeling and knowledge representation languages, as well as advances in methodologies and theoretical foundations for policy acquisition and execution. It is becoming increasingly feasible to reduce the coupling between policies and their implementations, and to empower users to independently interact with the part of a business application that is relevant to them, including the decision modeling process. One approach towards achieving this objective is to separate understandably the representation of the knowledge at the business, operational and execution levels, on the one hand; and the business vocabulary from the business rules, on the other. At the same time, it must be possible to merge them at any moment in order to provide integrated ownership, combined execution and consistency checking.
The goal of this workshop is to gather together the community of business users in charge of decision-support business applications. The workshop will be a means for practitioners to share and exchange experiences, best practices, critical visions, success stories, and to deﬁne a possible roadmap to the future.
