Workflow Automation and Business Rules

     

Workflow Engine

Workflow is a series of steps that get work done and a fundamental partner of the Rule Engine in Decisions. With Decisions you can develop executable workflows without writing code, in the same way you would draw them on a whiteboard or using other diagramming software. The real magic is in the workflow steps – these graphical abstractions of code can be placed in complex patterns that get real life work done. Adding steps to the toolbox can be as simple as pasting an API URL into a wizard, or using our SDK to register custom .NET methods.

Business Rule Engine

The Business Rule Engine is at the core of the Decisions Platform right next to the Workflow Engine. It enables users to see, understand, and edit the business rules in their software applications without writing any code. Decisions Rules can take many different forms to support different types of evaluation. These include: statement rules, truth tables, decision trees, sequential rules, and expressions.

Forms Designer

A WYSIWYG form designer makes it easier to create targeted points of end user interaction that collection information that moves a workflow along. With an extensive library of form controls, mobile-friendly configurability, and the option to embed these forms in other applications or portals – we expect change to happen quickly.

Configurable Dashboards and Reports

We want end users to get work done quickly. So instead of checking a report in one system, writing a note down on paper, and going somewhere else to take action – end users can drill in, and make changes or assign tasks from right within a dashboard in Decisions. User can personalize these pages with a drag and drop editor and revert back to the original shared version at any time.

Flexible Deployment Options

Decisions can be made available as a service (SaaS) or as a license to be installed on your own hosting solution on-site, in the cloud, or in a hybrid site/cloud model. The software is the same for each model, and there is minimal effort migrating to or from the cloud.

Key Features

Integrations

Workflow Automation and Business Rules are not very useful without data and events in other systems to support. That’s why we made it easy for users to connect to new systems with click through wizards for new API and database connections. In addition to bringing new information in – every flow, rule and form has its own integration details that are configured by selecting a few options to define how you’d like to access it from other systems. 

Developer SDK

Developers can extend the platform through a simple .NET SDK. These extensions can be at the flow step, rule verb and form control level, or more complex extensions can support unique integration and other features.

Modules

Decisions provides additional functionality and out of the box component packs through what we call modules. Out of the box modules including connector packs and patterns to systems like Salesforce, Sharepoint, Amazon Web Services, Docusign and many others. We also let developers create add-ons that can be enabled or disabled at the admin level in the platform.

Visual Data Mapper

Without writing code you can map data that is moving around your workflows into data structures that are easily consumable by users and other systems. Simply drag a line from a data structure on the left to the data structure on the right and let the data flow.

End User Portal

Decisions provides an end user portal out of the box where your end users can get work done and interact with the workflows you have built. Complete with a flexible and pluggable user management mechanism you can surface tasks, reports, dashboards, service catalog items, forms and other interactive pages to your end users. User can configure custom views – and you can use our granular permissions mechanism to make the right users have access to the right data at the right time.

Easy to Embed

Decisions is an open, and pluggable platform focused on enabling the participation of your non-developer users in the software design process. We understand that we may be participating in a larger system – and as such designed each component of Decisions to be easily embeddable in other systems on a user interface and data level.
