A radically different approach delivers reliable decisions that scale at digital speed.
Progress® Corticon® Business Rules Server processes the rules modeled, verified and tested in Corticon Studio, ensuring reliable results and delivering lightning-fast performance.
Corticon fits naturally in today’s service-oriented architectures, deploying as a web service and thereby improving the performance, scalability, and high availability of leading application servers. For even faster performance, Corticon can also be executed in-process.
While most business rules engines analyze rules during execution, Corticon takes a radically different approach with the patented Design-Time-Inferencing TM (DeTI) algorithm. With DeTI, analysis and conflict resolution happens during the design process when an extra second or two doesn’t matter. This enables the Corticon Server to deliver blazing performance that scales linearly with both the number of rules and the complexity of the data.
Corticon Server enables organizations to make better, faster decisions by automating business rules. Benefits include:
Because Corticon Server executes decision services with inferencing optimized prior to deployment, it executes rules more efficiently and reliably than traditional rule engines. Thanks to its linear scaling profile, capacity is limited only by the hardware and number of machines on which it is executing. As your company grows, Corticon grows with you.
Corticon Server makes the most of industry standards to provide flexible options for enterprise integration with applications running on Java or .NET platforms. You can embed Corticon in any layer of an application’s architecture. Embedding in composite or packaged applications through Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) or Business Process Management (BPM) systems is straightforward because Corticon Server was designed for it.
In today’s heated regulatory climate, organizations must be able to explain the reasoning behind each business decision and transaction. Corticon Server provides the “what”, “why” and “when” for every decision service it executes, eliminating the need for error-prone manual reconstruction or auditing. Sophisticated runtime filters further improve decision-making consistency by automatically matching the right decision service to a request.
Corticon will model, verify and test any business logic, regardless of its complexity.
