Abstract: This paper gives an introduction to the recently established OMG SBVR standard on business rules. This standard is a major step forward in improving the productivity of business rule- modelers and analysts. The paper shows how the mature fact-oriented approaches, e.g. ORM and CogNiam, are related to this new standard and how they can contribute to deliver high quality SBVR models.
