IBM Operational Decision Manager 8.9.x

Until ODM 8.9.1, ODM came in three packages: Express, Standard, and Advanced. Express and Standard contained only rule functionality, and Advanced contained all the rule functionality plus Insights and Events. All three packages included Decision Server (designated as Advanced or Standard since ODM 8.7) and Decision Center. For system requirement purposes, ODM Express was equivalent to ODM Standard.  

Starting with ODM 8.9.2, ODM comes in two packages: ODM Server and ODM Server Express. ODM Server contains all the business rule and Insights functionality, while ODM Server Express contains only the rule functionality, with limited usage. For system requirements, there is no difference between ODM Server and ODM Server Express.
