Chapter Two: Enterprise Decision Management
Today’s business trends are driving organizations to build systems smart enough to cope with the demands of a more complex world. As a result, organizations must automate and improve far more of the decisions underpinning day-to-day business operations. They must treat these decisions as a corporate asset in the same way they treat their data as one—perhaps even more so. These decisions are too numerous and cumulatively too important to be handled in an ad hoc manner. Decisions (or at least the definition of a good decision) change rapidly and influence your organization’s behavior. A new systematic approach called enterprise decision management is needed.
