Decision services are quite the buzz term lately, and are even turning up as product features. As a solution architect or developer you may have seen the need to go outside of the pure product scope and think about designing and implementing decision services so that they can be easily maintained and consumed. Part 1 of this series addresses some best practices for designing and implementing a decision service using IBM® Business Process Manager Advanced and WebSphere® Operational Decision Management. The article defines the key points to consider when designing rule-based decision services that follow best practices and fit into a large IT architecture. This content is part of the IBM Business Process Management Journal.
