  • ECC Conference Day 1 Afternoon Sessions Were Exceptional

    In mid-June, I traveled to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and attended the annual Enterprise Computing Community (ECC) Conference. In June, I wrote about the conference and for this blog and the next few, I will describe and discuss the sessions that I attended on the first and second day of the conference. This post describes the sessions that I attended in the afternoon of the first day of the conference. Read my thoughts on the morning conference.

    Marist College and the ECC for the 8th Annual Conference

    In mid-June, I traveled to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and attended the annual Enterprise Computing Community (ECC) Conference. This was my second time and the eighth for the ECC. Over the next few months, I plan to write about the presentations I heard and send some reports from the people that I met and interviewed in the field. I’m not going to do it all at once, instead I’ll spread it out to keep the memory of this dynamic experience alive in my mind and to encourage some of you to sign up for next year’s conference.

    Another New Economy: Cloud

    This is the first post in a new series on the cloud economy. Since mid-April, I have been exploring new economies leveraging software. I’m also including hardware and services when they’re part of the new economy’s system. Cloud is more than a software economy as cloud services involve a whole structure of software, computer hardware, people, procedures and data.

    Reverse Engineering Business Rules

    This is the last post in this series on software for Business Rules Management Systems (BRMS) software. In this post, I discuss the flip side of the business rule discussion, specifically extracting rules from existing applications. Think of a coin, it has two sides, head and tail. In the previous posts, I have been writing about the head of the coin—BRMS software that makes it possible to predefine the rules then use them at run time from the application. The tail side of the coin is using software and human invention to reverse engineer the business rules that are imbedded in the running code.
