Couldn’t agree more re: “first-class citizens”.
The challenge as I see it in decomposing BPMS by externalizing rules, events, data, etc. is that it becomes expensive in Hardware and Software, adds indirection/latency, and distributed component complexity that makes system-wide security/governance/version control difficult.
We took the “first-class citizens” concept to its logical extent, externalizing all artifacts of a distributed system architecture. This gives us one layer, one artifact, and one extensible method. A lightweight approach to applying all concerns (system governance, business rules, transaction controls) at run-time based on context. This is real-time interaction processing, which bridges the divide between analytics and operations.
