The software industry has long strived for an environment where a business user can easily define the business concepts, relationships and policies. Recently a team of developers using semantic technology and an expressive business language made a significant breakthrough.
Through demonstration and discussion of the technologies, the presenters explore how business users create, extend and alter high level business concepts, view concept dependencies, create natural language rules and instantly reveal the code behind the rules.
