Automate Business Rules to Accelerate Application Development

Automate Business Rules to Accelerate Application Development

Posted on January 09, 2023 0 Comments

Your Progress OpenEdge applications can experience significant improvements by integrating Progress Corticon's business rules management capabilities.

Any business, whether it operates in a highly regulated industry or has many internal decision dependencies, can benefit greatly from the automation of business rules.

Businesses are driven to develop cost-effective solutions to maintain their applications, considering regulatory obligations and industry challenges since the market for business applications is so competitive. Other companies must also confront the issue of upgrading their systems to meet these demands while bringing IT systems closer to the actual business to enable quicker responses to changes.

To react quickly to change, business analysts and domain experts frequently need the authority to define application behavior without going through the software development release lifecycle.

What It Does

Progress Corticon for OpenEdge combines two industry-leading technologies that automate decision-making logic with agility and business control, helping organizations make better, smarter and faster decisions. The rules engine separates business logic from application code to accommodate faster, business-driven change.

By automating decision-making logic, developers are allowing applications to make smarter and faster decisions. This allows the business to improve the accuracy and speed of benefits, eligibility and delivery for your customers.

Why Is It Important?

Corticon fosters a collaborative approach that is faster and less error-prone, enabling developers and business analysts to develop and modify solutions faster. Separating customizations from core application code means more accessible customer support and predictable upgrades.

By importing the OpenEdge database schema as Corticon Vocabularies, businesses may share data models with other Corticon users right out of the box. Rules can also be called managed adapters directly from Progress OpenEdge Advanced Business Language (ABL).

Business analysts and developers can create and test business rules and business logic outside of OpenEdge using the Eclipse-based development environment offered by Corticon. While upholding IT governance and controls, Corticon enables business analysts to play a more active part in the development process.

Key Benefits

Manual rule changes are time-consuming, prone to error and leave businesses vulnerable to compliance issues. A combined RDBMS and rules engine will unlock overlooked business opportunities and free up employee time to pursue them.

  • Accelerate initial development by 10x, maintenance cycles by 25x.
  • Get higher-quality business logic by catching errors earlier in the design.
  • Import database schema as Corticon vocabularies, saving time and money.
  • Engage and empower business analysts in the development process.
  • Ensure proper governance and rules compliance.

In addition to these advantages, users can cut the initial development time for business logic by 90%, freeing developers to work on more innovative business projects. Business analysts can now control their business logic, which will increase agility and shorten time to market, saving developers time and resources. Overall, by using Progress Corticon for OpenEdge, users can develop higher-quality business logic.
