Our Approach

How can Artemis Alliance maximize your opportunity to achieve technical and business gains? It all starts with our approach. Based on customer demands, our approach is fundamentally different from that of many consulting firms. Far too often, consulting firms drive in busloads of resources, get them educated on your dime, push you to outsource the entire project, attempt to keep them billing as long as possible, and hit you with long-term maintenance costs on software they developed for you at your cost. Artemis’ approach is to truly partner with our customers and work with the people and teams already in place. We bring in the right resources with the right skills at the right time to fill skill or experience needs and mentor your team to a level where they operate independently from any outside organizations. Our goal is to make ourselves obsolete!

Our Approach to Business Rules Initiatives

Artemis focuses on the whole business, not just the technology. Technology alone is rarely, if ever, a silver bullet. Yet technology deployed with business intelligence becomes interesting and powerful. Deploying technology that externalizes and manages the decision-making capacity or the rules of an organization empowers the business to use that technology as an extension of its intellectual power. This is not a simple endeavor. It requires new thinking and true collaboration between the business and technology groups.

Faced with the contemporary demands to share information effectively, streamline productivity and reduce costs, many organizations are faced with the question of how to adopt and realize the value of a business rules approach. The decision to adopt a business rules approach requires the company to resolve a whole set of complex issues relating to “how” to design and implement this business rules initiative.

In the end, a successful business rules initiative provides not only technological improvements within an organization, but also some real and measurable business improvements such as:

  • The ability to make and implement changes to the business quickly.
  • Reduction of both the disruption and cost of making change(s).
  • By aligning business people more closely with system specifications and with business rules no longer hidden in code, they have access to better decision-making information.
  • As conclusions reached from data warehousing are more meaningful when associated with active business rules, the correlation of trends or results to the underlying business rules provides a mechanism by which the business can experiment with changed rules to improve forecasting.
