Business Rule Management Solutions

Business Rule Management Solutions
Business environments change quickly and unpredictably. This makes flexible business policies those that can change frequently and quickly a necessity, because only such responsive policy changes will let a business stay competitive or even viable. For organizations to respond/adapt quickly to changes, the underlying logic that drives business decisions cannot be buried within disparate systems. Businesses must become more agile and the need of hour is to transform the logic into better executable models.


Organizations have started to embrace Business Rules Management Solutions to empower business users to manage the decisions, thereby increasing business agility and decreasing time-to-market. This is because Business Rules Management liberates the underlying decision-making logic from separate applications where it has been buried within the application code. A Business Rules Management System (BRMS) is a software system used to define, deploy, execute, monitor and maintain the variety and complexity of decision logic that is used by operational systems  within an organization or enterprise.

Transformation Initiatives using Business Rules

With a host of different IT solutions present, one needs to analyze and assess the benefits of making Business Rules Management part of any organization’s enterprise architecture.

Business Process Management – Business rules help an organization’s business process management initiative by capturing and executing decisions, thereby aiding in decision automation.

Legacy Modernization – As part of legacy modernization activities, harvesting and externalizing rules helps validate and redeploy business knowledge into new applications. Other advantages include improved consistency and manageability of business knowledge and lower maintenance costs.

Re-platform Initiatives – As part of re-platform (or adoption focus) initiatives, organizations can converge towards externalizing the key process-data model into a powerful decision strategy incorporating transparent and centralized business rules.

Regulatory Compliance – Regulatory bodies increasingly require organizations to make their strategies transparent and in alignment of specific norms. Business rules can be particularly helpful in implementing a strategy which can be automatic, easily manageable and highly responsive to changing regulatory policies.
