Rule-Based Data Processing with DMN and Camunda

Friday, September 21, 4:20 pm

Presented by David Hammer, Robert Breske

The GVL aggregates millions of usage reports for musical and cinematographic works from various sources every year. To cope with this amount of incoming data, a transparent and audit-proof data aggregation system was desired to be built. The solution was a DMN rule-based approach embedded in camunda's proccess engine framework, altogether with an audit-proof storage of the process history data. This system is capable of simulating the process flow for any processed data record at any later point in time, in case of a need for revision or validation. The GVL currently runs this scalable system with a troughput of more than one million daily process instances.
