A Business Rules Management System (BRMS) is a technology system used to capture decision logic as a business rule, which is then automated across applications. Instead of embedding rules as code within multiple applications, with a BRMS, the rules are externalized and managed away from application code. This enables the logic to be leveraged by multiple applications and changed independently from the governing applications.
A BRMS empowers companies to define and maintain the rules guiding a system’s decision workflow to determine what actions are enabled in any given circumstance. With logic outside the programming code, these systems deliver a profound boost to business agility, productivity and logic accuracy—and in so doing, deliver reliable cost savings and faster rules changes when necessary.
