The competitive nature of today's business demands that an organization's business processes be highly dynamic. A business must accommodate and manage fast-changing business rules associated with business processes. A business rules management system (BRMS) enables you to extract business rules and decisions from business processes and manage them independently, thereby allowing the processes to be streamlined. This article describes how to integrate IBM® WebSphere® ILOG® JRules, an industry-leading BRMS, with IBM FileNet® P8 BPM, a comprehensive business process management system (BPMS).
