    Business Rules Automation | Graphical Rules Authoring


    XpertRule® Decision Author is our Graphical Rules Authoring Environment used to develop, test, deploy and maintain Business Rules applications. The main value proposition of XpertRule Decision Author is the speed of development of business rules, work flows and calculations. This is a result of 30 years of investment into R & D reacting to graphical development environments, graphical rules representations and high performance deployment architectures.

    Based on the experience of many XpertRule developers from large organisations around the world, the typical improvement in application development speed gained from using XpertRule are up to 30 times that of Java or .NET technologies.

    The unique features of the web author are:

    • Create knowledge from your web browser
    • No downloads, no browser plugins & no installs.
    • Knowledge is stored in the cloud and can be edited from anywhere.
    • Test your knowledge live.


     Below are examples of the decision tree / flow representation in Decision Author




    Decision Author also allows rules to be expressed as decision tables which are easy to maintain within Decision Author or can be imported from external databases or spreadsheets.




    Decision/flow trees in Decision Author can also contain functions and/or scripting elements. These elements can be used for calculations, string manipulations, calling external elements (web services, data sources) etc.




    Decision Author supports 2 levels of scripting to allow a developer to choose the representation which best fits their needs & skill set. We support an integrated formula builder which supports many of the most frequently required operations. These formulas are maintained via a graphical interface with minimal (if any) typing required. Should more complex scripting be required, we support the industry standard JavaScript language. The developer can even mix and match their choice of representation within a single application if the need arises!




    Decision Author has a graphical user interface with an object explorer showing the attributes, trees, tables, procedures and other components of the application.




    Decision Author breaks-down the rules into a hierarchy of decision trees for ease of development and maintenance. A report displays the overall hierarchy of decision trees and attributes in a “knowledge map” as illustrated in the following map showing a tree “Expenses” which has 3 questions “Grade”, “Hotel” and “Department” of which “Hotel” is a sub-tree with 2 questions “Cost” and “InLondon”.
