  • Application Development Session: Room B first floor

    Session Evaluation

    Abstract

    Ever wonder where to find a business rule in your monolithic code base? Can't respond quickly to a simple business rule change? Do you have code that is so old that nobody knows how it works anymore? This session is for you!

    We will describe technical and business aspects of Business Rules and Business Rule discovery in large legacy environments. We will discuss the roles of Enterprise Architect and Business Analyst in the process of business rule discovery. We will then explore static code analysis, data analytics, and machine learning as possible techniques to expedite discovery of business terms and business rules. We will also demonstrate the importance of a coherent environment to facilitate and manage discovery of business rules in conjunction with managing performance and test data to help refactor the code faster.

  • Application Development Session: Room B first floor

    Session Evaluation

    Abstract

    DevOps principles have been around for some time.  Data accumulated from Development and Operations in the form of traces and logs has also been available for manual analysis.  Analyzing the intersection of dev and ops data using Machine Learning is the focus of this session.  By using sample applications and IBM’s Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence, we will discuss basics of Machine Learning and some of the Artificial Intelligence algorithms and explore potential future applications of more sophisticated approaches to analysis and improvements in efficiency of DevOps processes in Enterprise environments.
