ACTICO Rules

Accelerate innovation cycles and gain business agility while minimizing risks

Business Rules & Decision Management

Graphical modeling meets high performance execution

ACTICO Rules is our intuitive business rules management system. It enables companies to accelerate innovation cycles, and increase efficiency and business agility while minimizing risks at the same time. ACTICO Rules is your direct way to creating business value from IT: Decouple business logic from your IT applications, manage it with intuitive, graphical tools, and benefit from high-performance execution capabilities and audit-proof transparency.



ACTICO Rules covers the entire BRM life cycle

Business logic is modeled and optimized graphically

Model & optimize business rules

ACTICO Rules allows business professionals to create and optimize all kinds of rules-based decision logic autonomously. They use an intuitive graphical approach to model business rules and GRC rules for their business department. Testing and simulation capabilities ensure that only quality-assured, risk-free models are deployed to production. Comprehensive graphical documentations of models and data are generated with the click of a button.

Administrate & deploy business rules

With ACTICO Rules, you can facilitate the administration and deployment of business rules. A common repository improves collaboration between business and IT significantly and greatly simplifies how to organize and keep track of business logic as it is updated to new versions. By using ACTICO Rules as your enterprise-wide central rule engine, you simplify your application landscape and ensure consistency across all systems and channels.

Rules-based business logic is administrated efficiently and deployed consistently
Execution statistics are displayed in the graphical model

Execute, monitor & analyze business rules

Automate your rules-based, operational decisions, and reveal potentials for improvement with ACTICO Rules. It supports various execution scenarios for your business logic: from direct integration into a Java application via batch jobs to deploying rules as web services or microservices. Execution is monitored continuously and documented traceably allowing you to analyze chances and risks, and thus, by optimizing your models accordingly within a closed improvement life cycle.


Key Features


Graphical Modeling

Business users and IT professionals use the configurable ACTICO Modeler tool for intuitive graphical modeling, documentation, analysis and quality assurance of rules, business decisions or state flows.

High-Performance Execution

Rules and decisions are automated efficiently based on a high-performance execution core, the business rules engine. Each executed transaction is documented in a detailed way.

Central Repository

Business rules are managed in a central repository. Distributed teams use the repository to collaborate efficiently and provide the rules centrally for reuse – including full audit logs and access control.

Testing & Simulation

Comprehensive test management and simulation capabilities support users at assuring quality and avoiding risks. The test-driven approach ensures that only correct business rules reach production.

Analytic Capabilities

Users gain new insights by using execution statistics or dependency diagrams. Predictive decision tree models can be imported via PMML allowing you to transfer analytic results directly into an executable rule model.

Version Management

Our comprehensive change and version management supports you even in very complex scenarios. It enables you to deploy different rule versions dynamically during runtime.

DMN Support Available in 2017

In 2017, ACTICO Rules will support the creation, exchange and execution of DMN models. Full compatibility with DMN standard in version 1.1 provides even greater transparency and an optimized business IT alignment.

Benefits

Business-IT Alignment

ACTICO Rules supports your division of tasks and the alignment of business and IT. Business departments realize their expertise independently while IT provides the technical infrastructure and assists during integration.

Accelerated Time to Market

Rules and decision models are maintained by business professionals and implemented independent from IT release cycles. This accelerates time to market for innovations or modification significantly.

Increased Efficiency

Automating operational decisions results in an increased efficiency throughout the entire company. This systematic digitization reduces process costs and raises productivity.

Improved Transparency

Business decision rules are created and managed hand in hand with associated regulatory requirements. Visual models simplify familiarization and improve transparency of relations and dependencies.

Full Revision-Safety

Each executed transaction is documented in a detailed audit-trail. Thus, decisions made are traceable and reproducible at any time providing full revision-safety.

Continuous Optimization

By saving all executed decisions ACTICO Rules establishes the basis for analyzing and optimizing the underlying models continuously. Thus, potentials for improvement are identified easily and realized rapidly.

Reduce development time & cost

As a unique collaboration platform, ACTICO Rules has shown to reduce development time and costs by up to 50 %, while cutting maintenance time and costs by up to 90 %. ACTICO's business rules management system supports the clear separation of roles between business and IT departments, creating a new model of collaboration within companies and beyond.
