    3. Business rules are crucial to operational systems, and they change over time. The traditional (ad hoc) approach of dealing with rule changes leads to… Issues Where Business Rules Typically Exist • Rules are hidden in code or isolated within the organization • Changes are hard to track and maintain over time • Rules used by systems have to be programmed and require IT resources • Duplication and multiple versions of the same rules • Lack of auditability, traceability • Decision changes cannot be easily tested or simulated Processes People Documents Applications Traditional Approach for Managing Decision Change • Reduced organizational agility • Reduced employee productivity • Increased load on IT

    4. The Smarter Approach – Easy, Safe, Reliable Change with BRMS Where Business Rules Typically Exist Processes People Documents Applications • Eliminate decision silos • Make decision logic accessible to Business and IT • Allow business users to manage rules • Implement fine-grained, context-specific decision automation • Reduce maintenance time/cost Business Rule Management System Rules are Defined, Analyzed and Maintained User Tools Rules are Stored and Shared Rule Repository Rules are Deployed, Executed and Monitored Rule Server August 22, 2014 4

    5. Redefined Application Change Cycle Days / Weeks Weeks / Months Developer Business - IT Decisions / Policies Functions /Tasks / Flow Implement Govern Design Code Publish Rules Execute Edit Trace

    6. Managing Change Across the Organization I need easy, efficient and reliable policy change delivery I need a comprehensive rules development and maintenance environment Development Rule Developer Rule Modeler Business Analyst Line of Business Business Partner Policy Manager Line of Business Manager I need performance, scalability, monitoring andreliability of operations Production IT Administrator System/Ops Manager

    10. Business Rule Language if the type of claim is Veterinarycost then Processing type for claim is : Automate else Processing type for claim is : Manual • Supports all kind of rules: • Basic to cross validations • Derivations • Inference based rules • Calculations rules • Product offering • Underwriting • Scoring • Rating… • Customizable vocabulary specific to your organization, industry, application (etc.) • Supports language localization • Integrates with external data sources (e.g. list of countries) • Drop down lists for customized domain data • Templates facilitate new rule creation if the credit score of the borrower is less than 200 then add "Credit score below 200" to the messages of the loan reject the loan;
