Business rules are at the foundation of every information system as they drive and offer guidelines for managing and conducting all activities within an organizations. They are important both for operational systems and for analytical ones, as they can serve as data quality rules. Several business rules implementation solutions are presented and analyzed, according to some basic criteria that have to be taken into account when choosing a business rules implementation strategy. This paper also emphasizes how an explicit manipulation of business rules influence the database design.
