Best Practices, Business Policies and Decision Criteria in Intuitive Business Terms
Fair, Isaac and Company, Inc. announces Blaze Advisor 4.5, a rules management technology, offers application designers new flexibility in selecting how the rule engine should process the business rules they have defined. This integrated software suite enables enterprises to express their own best practices, business policies and decision criteria in intuitive business terms. A classic inference network supports a large set of rules with many interdependencies, while a new sequential mode allows efficient fixed-order rule processing against large data sets. This new option is well suited to many types of batch applications. A single application can use both processing methods in the course of making a business decision, with different rule groups partitioned for most effective execution and maintenance. This release also extends the solution’s exclusive custom generation of web-based rule management screens to include decision tables. Business managers use a web browser to manage thousands of rules in a compact grid, similar to a spreadsheet. They make changes at any time without learning programming syntax or specialized editor operation. There are numerous enhancements including compatibility with the Java Community Process specification for Java rule engine interfaces (JSR-94) as well as user interface improvements such as extensive context-sensitive help and easier access to rule projects and documentation.
