    Abstract

    Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is an OMG standard to ensure that decision models can be shared between multiple stakeholders, and/or created, analyzed and executed on platforms provided by multiple vendors. DMN is already showing promise, with several industrial business rule vendors providing support. This compares well to previous standards like Rule Interchange Format (RIF) and Production Rule Representation (PRR) which failed to gain industry adoption with the business rules community. This paper introduces DMN with a focus on the portability of its executable profile across computational platforms. The paper proposes a cross vendor collaboration challenge, "Vacation Days" from the Decision Management Community, to test the effectiveness of the standard for use in cross vendor situations. The different degrees of compliance and extensions as supported by the vendors is also discussed.
