Alignment of Business Process Management and Business Rules
Business process management and business rules management both focus on controlling business activities in organizations. Although both management principles have the same focus, they approach manageability and controllability from different perspectives. As more organizations deploy business process management and business rules management, this paper argues that these often separated efforts should be integrated. The goal of this paper is to present a step towards this integration. The authors propose a business rule categorization that is aligned to the business process management lifecycle.
