Progress Software Demos Advanced Business Rules Control at Gartner Business Process Management Summit
Progress Corticon Rules Engine Delivers Improved Decision Management and Increased ROI
Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a leading software provider that enables enterprises to be operationally responsive, has announced a new release of the Progress® Corticon® 5.2 business rules engine. The new release provides several innovative features that deliver faster decision management through the market-leading Corticon business rules management system (BRMS).
Progress will demonstrate the following Corticon 5.2 advancements at the Gartner Business Process Management Summit in London:
- Web-based rule maintenance - business users can modify rules within an already deployed decision service using simple, predefined web templates;
- Natural language support – business rules can be represented in pure natural language and supporting any locale, simplifying rule maintenance by business users;
- Improved mobility – business users can change business rules directly from an iPad, and IT can monitor and manage Corticon server performance via their tablet computer;
- High-performance batch processor - IT users can deploy Corticon BRMS in a batch processing architecture to maximize performance and scalability;
- XML namespace – This supports multiple namespaces for XML payloads.
Tae Sondreal, Business Rules Architect, Prime Therapeutics, noted: “Corticon's approach to natural language is amazingly simple, yet incredibly powerful. Unlike other BRMS products, it is remarkably easy to setup, and enables true business user control of complex decision logic.”
The Progress Corticon BRMS is now integrated into the Progress Responsive Process Management™ suite, a pioneering offering in the emerging intelligent business process management space.
The Progress RPM suite also comprises the Progress Actional® Business Transaction Management (BTM), the Progress Apama® Complex Event Processing (CEP) and the Progress Savvion® Business Process Management (BPM) platforms, all of which are managed using the revolutionary Progress Control Tower® interface that delivers the real-time intelligence other business dashboards cannot.
Dr. Mark Allen, chief Technology Officer of decision management at Progress Software, said: “This new release further reinforces Progress Corticon’s leadership position in the BRMS market. In addition, customers using the Savvion, Apama and Actional products can take full advantage of the Corticon product to improve their operational responsiveness through advanced rules automation, which will enhance their existing BPM and SOA investments.”
The Progress Corticon BRMS product is used by many of the world's largest financial services, insurance, and eCommerce companies as well as federal and state government organizations, collectively automating millions of decisions per day to improve productivity and customer service. Corticon’s model-driven approach makes rules accessible to business domain experts who can maintain and adapt rules, according to changing market conditions.
