Business Rules Management – Costs & Benefits (ROI)

Does an investment in a business rules management system (BRMS) pay off?

Assessing the ROI of a business rules management system

Companies benefit from business rules management systems (BRMS) in many ways and the benefits are often difficult to quantify. However, investments in these intermediaries between business and IT have to pay off. Our study gives you a brief overview of the costs and benefits of a BRMS.

Software developers in companies certainly understand a great deal about code and know how to write software elegantly. They are however rarely experts on the subject of business rules. This is an area that requires the company‘s experts who in turn have difficulty in envisioning how these rules can be integrated into the software. Business rules management systems (BRMS) act as intermediaries between the two camps.

The increasing interest in decision management leads to BRMS becoming more and more important. The demand is growing for companies to implement strategy changes faster and faster by adapting their business rules in IT systems, in order to be able to respond, at any time, to changes in the markets and the individual requirements of customers. Usually, however, prompt changes to the business rules failed due to the excessive length of the release cycles in the development of the applications

Business rules represent complicated business requirements that can only be specified and tested by the business. Nevertheless, cooperation between the areas of expertise usually ends with the specification of business rules. The implementation and testing is then carried out by IT. The result is that technical errors are only detected at a very late stage and at great cost.
