Why Visual Rules?

In complex company structures and heterogenous teams, flexible and intelligent business rules are essential to profitable decison-making.

Intuitive modeling

Your business users and your IT experts can define rules via visual modeling interfaces and allocation of specific roles. Visual Rules serves as a communications platform.

Agile business rules

Visual Rules lets you respond flexibly to modified requirements. Your business logic is therefore always up to date – with no changes to your application.

Trackable decisions

Visual Rules precisely converts the rules you have modeled into executable applications. As a result, you can automate and track decisions.

Flexibly manage business rules from conception to execution

In collaboration with their IT experts your business users can use Visual Rules to model even highly complex business logic by converting them into easy-to-understand rules. In addition, you will intuitively create and maintain rules as well as automate operational decisions in the Visual Rules Modeler. You can present simple business logic in decision tables that are very similar to those compliant with the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard. Alternatively, make more complex material easy to understand by modeling it in process rules.

As rules affect many different people, Visual Rules supports rules management by the team. Assign responsibilities to your business users and IT experts, allowing your staff to use Visual Rules for effective teamwork. In Visual Rules your business users can use the Visual Rules team server together with his IT colleague to make changes without any need to modify the application.

Once you are satisfied with the rules you have created, our software will automatically convert them into executable code. Visual Rules will also test your business rules and roll them out to the runtime environment. As an alternative, you can choose to provide your models manually.

On-the-job teamwork pays off. When your managers and IT experts collaborate, your development phase might last only half as long. What’s more, you can reduce the duration of maintenance tasks by as much as 90%.

Apply your models and track the results

Based on your rule models, Visual Rules generates Java code that is compiled to ensure ultra-high performance. Our BRM software can be integrated into your IT landscape very smoothly, either by invoking rules as SOAP or RESTful web services or integrating them into existing Java applications. This means you can customize your business rules. They will also be executed in a reliable and trackable manner.

In addition, Visual Rules documents every step – allowing you to evaluate your runtime statistics and processing time. These evaluations make it easy for you to track and optimize your business rules. Visual Rules helps you to not only meet compliance regulations, but also make the right decisions.
