Build an app that uses Business Rules and IBM Analytics for Hadoop services on IBM Bluemix. Learn how to use a sample application that opens up the possibility for data scientists to analyze big data with business rules.
The Business Rules service hosted in Bluemix, and powered by Operational Decision Manager, allows you to define, deploy, and maintain business rules and policies separately from your application code. To demonstrate the benefits of decoupling the lifecycle of the calling application from the business logic (rules) running in a cloud service, the tutorial walks through building a simple hotel booking application in a Node.js runtime bound to a Business Rules service that calculates the booking rates. Learn how to deploy and execute business rules in the cloud environment. Then you can extend this application with more complex rules or build your own application.
This tutorial is the first part of a two-part series: Improve decision making in process applications with the Question and Answer service on IBM Bluemix.

This tutorial is the second part of a series: Engage users of process applications on their own terms with the Personality Insights service on IBM Bluemix.
