New book(s) on business rules
My friend Carsten Ziegler, with Thomas Albrecht, has just released a new book on business rules for SAP customers – BRFplus: Business Rule Management for ABAP Applications. I was delighted to provide a foreword to this book as I think BRFplus is a terrific tool for SAP customers, giving them the power of business rules on their ABAP infrastructure. You can buy the book right now on SAP Press and, hopefully, on amazon.com soon (check this link to see BRFplus — Business Rule Management for ABAP Applications). As I said in the foreword:With this book, Carsten and Thomas have written a detailed yet readable description of BRFplus. It covers everything from the web-based user interface for non-technical users to the technical details of the APIs. If you plan to use business rules to extend and manage your SAP Business Suite applications, which I highly recommend, this book will show you how to do so.
And don’t forget that a new SAP Press book on BPM is coming out soon also. Applying Real-World BPM in an SAP Environment has a whole chapter on decision management and business rules from me as well as a tremendous amount of great material on busines process management approaches and an overview of both SAP business rules products – NetWeaver BRM and BRFplus.
Finally, if you just want something short to be getting on with, check out this white paper I wrote on business rules and SAP – Business rules and decisioning for process experts.
