Ronald G. Ross on Business Rules
Ronald G. Ross is a noted industry authority and consultant. He has been the editor of Data Base Newsletter since 1977, and is the author of five books on information system development, including The Business Rule Book: Classifying, Defining and Modeling Rules (1994) and Entity Modeling: Techniques and Applications (1987). By many accounts, he was the earliest proponent of the business rule approach. Mr Ross is widely respected for his in-depth knowledge of database design and systems development techniques, and is known for the clarity of his writing and presentation.
Mr Ross will introduce us to the fascinating world of business rules and show how the formal expression of such rules can make your information systems and your business more adaptive and resilient. In addition, he will identify some major issues and pitfalls with current Object-Oriented approaches that we, as IRM professionals, should know.
