IBM Operational Decision Manager Room for Improvement

JayBirchmeier
Client Engagement Manager at Apex Process Consultants
There is some promise of how decisions could take advantage of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). That has been slow to develop. It is still not clear where the market will take it, but that is something that I am looking forward to down the road. Today we augment some ODM decisions with AI and with analytics, but I expect that in the next several years we will see much more growth in this area. ODM has recently released support for Decision Modeling and Notation (DMN) models that can be authored and executed right within the product. This too is an area that is in its early stages and I expect will mature quickly to an enterprise level. View full review »

Merging. If merging could be just like SVN, that would help. It should be a lot simpler. That's the only thing I don't like about ODM, merging from our local computer up to the Decision Server. I feel like it could be a lot easier. Also, extracting specific rules. We've had to do a lot of custom work on that. The testing, we've played a little bit with it, but we have our own testing methods. If it could be as simple as we have for our custom work, that would be great. View full review »

The initial set of features that I'd like to see are, for an IT guy like me to start building a rule, we end up using a lot of IT tools. But I think there should be more involvement by business. Business should be able to create those rules from scratch. I think Blueworks does it great. I think there should be a facility for business to really create rules from scratch. The only part for IT should be to make sure the platform is stable, the technology platform, but everything else, the business should be able to create those rules. It is business-user friendly, but it still needs to be from scratch, from ODM. View full review »

One area for improvement is master data integration. That should be more fluid. The others are hierarchical drop-down lists, and hierarchical master data. We have a few hundred others that I have on the list. View full review »

I would like to have integration of the user interfaces, and they are putting them together in the next version of the solution. There used to be two separate interfaces. Now, they are merging them into one. View full review »

What I'm really interested in, what I'd really like to see with this technology, is artificial intelligence, RPA. How can that interface with ODM? View full review »
