The Decisions Platform was built to provide meaningful configuration technologies enabling processes and rules within an application to be adjusted – without coding.
The Decisions Platform contains the following pieces
The platform can be leveraged to extend an existing application, be used to provide the base of process automation within an organization or as the foundation of a commercial application.
The Decisions Automation Platform provides a complete set of tools for building software applications. Every element of the Platform is reusable, streamlining application development. The Platform includes a full featured graphical workflow designer and business rule engine for modeling and automating business process. An easy to use drag-and-drop forms designer allows for the collection of data from end users. All data that is collected through the process, end user interaction, and integrations with external data sources is leveraged by the Decisions Reporting and Dashboard Engine.
The heart of the decisions platform is a set of designers that allow business functionality to be configured – without coding, in a fully graphical environment – by business analysts.
The Designers are:
Each of the designers serves a different purpose, but they interact together to provide additional functionality. For instance, the report engine can use the rule engine to provide logic around the meaning of data. The flow engine can leverage the data extraction and computation capability of the reporting engine to fetch data from databases and other sources – and inversely, the flow engine can be used by the reporting engine to make the data in reports active and actionable.
The Decisions Platform was to provide the base technology for a next generation set of applications – applications that could be configured by business people to provide greater business agility. The tools, features and architecture of this platform was to enable complex functionality to be moved into the web browser and deployed either in the cloud or on premise. Read more
