Decisions is a COMPLETE BPM platform with rule engine. At the heart of it are graphical designers that enable both IT and business to collaborate around the same visual – NO CODE – design technologies. Decisions is delivered either as a cloud service (SAAS) or can be managed inside infrastructure that your organization already has (on site or EC2/Azure).
Decisions workflow technology is designed to automate both people centric and data centric processes. It includes:
… and much more
Decisions also facilitates processes that are driven by experts or case workers. The rule and flow technologies assist in handling routine aspects and controlling the interactions and state of structured and unstructured data. Collaboration centric user interfaces can be created in same graphical paradigm as traditional workflow.
Decisions forms can be created for both browser based and mobile platforms. Decisions forms – created in same NO CODE paradigm – are responsive and dynamic.
Business rules can be leveraged by workflows, cases, forms as well as external applications. Rules can be called by API or embedded in other software/services. Rules are designed using graphical tools that business users can understand and often even modify.
Decisions was designed to run in a variety of different configurations. It can be run in the cloud (Decisions Hosted, Amazon EC2, Azure) or in corporate data centers. It can also be configured for redundancy and high availability. Enterprise features include:
Decisions features a full set of reporting/dashboarding and KPI/Metric functionality. This includes:
Integration is both an ‘inbound’ and ‘outbound’ concept in Decisions. Any flow, rule or report can be invoked either by a REST or SOAP based service or respond to a messaging queue (Rabbit, MSMQ, etc). Outbound there are integrations to both protocols and software packages including:
… and many more
The Decisions SDK allows developers (using .NET tools) to create new functionality for the design tools to use. This is often done when there is an integration with a system with non standard constraints or protocols, to include an existing library or set of custom code or to tune the design experience for the team members using the graphical designers. These include
In addition to any of the flows and rules being able to be consumed or embedded by your application or portal technology, Decisions includes a full user portal experience. This portal is skinnable (CSS), with user based security and native integration of all of the artifacts produced by the designer. The portal is optimized both for browser based access as well as mobile platforms.
An integrated app store (note, everything in it is free) provides pre built applications, templates and examples that allow you to quickly download stuff and customize it to your needs.
A full set of prebuilt business services are included that enable common business functionality to be leveraged. They include:
