Uncovering Booking Fraud with Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) and Decision Model Notation (DMN) by Arun Pareek


In a previous blog post, I wrote about the new Decision Modeling capability introduced in Oracle Process Cloud Service. The earlier post provided an introduction to DMN and a usage scenario along with a working prototype.

The decision modeling and notation standard released by OMG is a very powerful framework providing an implementation and modeling specification for solving many complex operational and strategic decision in an organization. In this second blog post of the series, I will put the DMN engine in Oracle PCS through a litmus test by implementing a complex decision modeling use case.

To make matters more interesting, I have now selected a decision modelling scenario published as an open challenge in the Decision Management Community in February. The solution shared in this post has been accepted and validated by the community moderator.

The modeling approach shared in this blog is based on the principle of “Inherent Simplicity” which says that every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple.
