IBM® Operational Decision Manager offers a powerful user interface that enables you to author, develop and test quickly and easily. You can manage your updates in a secured, controlled and traceable built-in process. Update your rules and predict their impact on KPIs before going in production using three environments to develop, test and deploy your decisions in production.

Intuitive way to discover and author decision logic

IBM Operational Decision Manager brings the power of no-code decision modeling into the realm of business users. It enables them to discover the decision space, describe how decisions are made, prototype solutions and try them before going in production. Also, IBM Operational Decision Manager makes it easy to define your own business terms. It ensures that your decisions are written with the language your business experts use every day.

Built-in testing and simulation

Business users must be confident that their decisions behave correctly and that any update does not break the overall business logic. Testing and simulation capabilities help them validate the business logic against well-defined usage scenarios and key performance indicators.

Role-based permission management

In addition to running tens of thousands of rules across many applications, IBM Operational Decision Manager enables anyone to participate in authoring, updating, deploying and managing the rules. Roles and rights can be define to ensure that every user does just the right things. This adds agility to your business to help you capture new opportunities.

Built-in governance process

IBM Operational Decision Manager provides governance and change management capabilities around your ability to create and scale business decisions.

Simplifying business application changes

When you decouple business rules from business process applications, you improve agility. Enabling business rules to be changed daily or weekly, without having to redeploy the entire application.
