RPA can delay your Digital Transformation

Written by Jakob Freund on , under Community category.

This is the most tangible insight I took away from attending an RPA conference in London this week. It was actually stated by one of the keynote speakers (he literally said: “many organizations use RPA to delay their digital transformation.”).

DMN is more than a Decision Table

Written by Philipp Ossler on , under Community category.

Decision tables are the most common element from DMN. They are easy to use and can solve many problems. However, DMN has more elements like Business Knowledge Models, Contexts, Literal Expressions, Function Definitions, Invocations and more.

In this post, I want to introduce the new extension for DMN and show how it can be used to model an example decision with the full power of DMN.

The (Re-)Emergence of Workflow Automation

Written by Jakob Freund on , under General category.

This blog post is based on the keynote I presented at CamundaCon 2018. It covers these four points:

  • We’re all turning into technology companies.
  • Digital Transformation relies on Business Process Automation (BPA).
  • BPA is a technology puzzle that suits your business.
  • Workflow automation is always one piece of that puzzle.

I am going to elaborate on each point and describe how I see Camunda contributing to this general development.
