Red Hat has released JBoss Enterprise Business Rules Management System (BRMS), an open source business rules solution that enables easy business policy and rules development, access, and management.
“In today’s economic environment businesses must be able to quickly adapt and respond to regulations, customer trends, opportunities and threats,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, Middleware Business Unit, Red Hat.
Business rules are parameters that describe how an organization performs work. Best practices require business rules to be maintained separately from the software applications and services they govern in order to maximize agility. If business rules are duplicated or scattered across many applications, updates are costly, error prone, and take weeks or months to implement. With JBoss Enterprise BRMS, enterprises can update their business rules to reflect the day-to-day business and regulatory environment as quickly as in a few hours or days. Additionally, JBoss Enterprise BRMS enables non-technical staff to manage the business process in an organization without programming.
“The combination of tight budgets, the increasing maturity of the BRMS, and the continual improvement of open source technologies creates a nearly perfect disruptive storm in the BRMS market,” said Stephen D. Hendrick, Group Vice President for Application Development and Deployment Research at IDC. “Open source BRMS products that get rule authoring, processing, and management right combined with a significantly lower TCO will receive a strong positive reception in the market.”
“From increased regulatory requirements to market pressures, the ability for organizations to rapidly respond and modify business rules is paramount. As a service provider we consistently strive to provide innovative and world-class solutions to our customers. Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise BRMS solution will allow us to give our customers an easy to use automated business rules system that will take their businesses to the next level,” said Tom Stack, vice president, Ubiquitous Solutions.
