Business rules

Smart BPM requires smart business rules

Today’s leading enterprises want “intelligent” business process management platforms that can thrive in complex, highly dynamic operational environments. A smart process management solution, however, can only be as smart as its business rules capabilities. In a sense, business rules comprise the intellect of a BPM system. In order for processes to be automated, an organization’s goals, policies, and procedures must be translated into a set of business rules that can be applied to individual events and interactions. The more sophisticated the business rules capability, the farther will be the reach of your BPM system.
