Decision management and analytics represent the next frontier in application development. While conventional language-based development tools have served us well and will continue to do so for mainstream IT needs, the opportunity in applied IT comes by looking beyond the incremental utility of process and workflow automation. Simple problems are best addressed by simple solutions and this is where language and process-led solutions are an ideal match. But complicated and complex problems represent higher-value IT use cases and are difficult to solve with process-led tools. This is where decision-led and analytic-led tools define the art of the possible and enable solutions that have the potential to be game changing. What’s even more remarkable is that while these decisioning and analytic tools can deliver very sophisticated solutions, they do not levy unusual demands on the user and in many cases result in less code being developed. Read on to better understand the role of decision analytics in complicated and complex problem solving and how to move beyond your current process-led application portfolio.
