Why You Should Be Using Business Rules Today ...
Change Is The Only Constant
Your enterprise undergoes change all the time—and faster every day. Like entering into new
markets. Introducing new products. Complying with new regulations. Making new agreements with
customers and suppliers. Changing business direction through mergers, acquisitions, alliances
and divestitures. Are your systems and procedures keeping up?
A Business Rule Application is an agile application; one deliberately architected for continuous
change in decision logic. Even better, a Business Rule Application gives the control of business
rules back to the business.
What Business Rules Are
Business Rules represent your core business policies and decision logic.
They control or shape business behavior and decisions. They indicate
what is possible or desirable in running your business—and what is not! They are the
captured essence of business know-how.
What Enterprise Decision Management (EDM) Is
Business Rules are a means to an end – the ends are the decisions the business must make.
You want those decisions to be reliable, traceable, and auditable. To accomplish that, you
need to build decision services that are highly re-usable, manageable and flexible. Business
rule engines (BRE) are the ideal technology to achieve those goals. To learn more about what EDM
is and its objectives, please visit the EDMSummit website.
Business Rules Must Be Harvested And Managed!
In the vast majority of organizations today, most business rules are locked away in legacy
systems, user manuals—or in the heads of a few key workers. It's a challenge simply tracking
them down. The good news is that once you harvest and manage the rules you can then re-deploy them
far more rapidly and effectively than most professionals have ever imagined. Business rule management
is the key.
Business Rules are Happening Now!
If you want to improve your business processes—make them smart—you
must adopt architectures and tools to keep your decision logic right at your fingertips. That's
true no matter whether you are developing state-of-the-art Web apps—or simply trying to get your
business people and IT staff talking to each other more effectively. Business Rules are the practical
solution to solve a whole host of challenges facing businesses today.
