A business rules management system (BRMS) is a type of software solution that gathers business decisions into business rules, which are then automated across applications. Decision logic specifies the details of a decision, meaning what combination of data leads to what result. After defining the decision logic, you need to apply rules to that decision.
Business rules are directives that define or restrict an organization’s business activities. Business rules provide the guidelines on how processes need to be performed.
The business rules management system (BRMS) defines, deploys, executes, monitors and manages business rules and decision logic. The system automates rules and decision making across processes. The BRMs identify the relationships between the business rules and associate the rule with the solution that executes the function.
This saves companies from having to embed the rules as code. The BRMS manages the rules separate from application code, thus allowing rules to be applied to multiple applications. The system also allows the changing of rules without disrupting application processes.
