The 11 Secrets of Business Rules Success
Managing business rules gives you control over high volume operational decisions and delivers unprecedented agility. Based on decades of experience developing decision management applications, FICO has developed 11 steps to help you make the most of business rules. These include:
- Picking the right applications. Business rules are a powerful tool for building smarter decisions into your applications but are better suited for some applications than others.
- Following a process. Like any development technology, business rules work best when you have a structure and follow a suitable methodology.
- Writing the right rules, the right way, and reusing them. Ensure your business rules are concise and atomic and use the right metaphor to manage them. Take advantage of your ability to manage them for reuse and to systematically verify, validate and simulate rules to get the result you want.
- Operationalizing predictive analytics. Business rules are an ideal platform for putting predictive analytics to work to improve the effectiveness and precision of decisions.
