The process for changing a business policy requires a complex consultation and translation process. Policy changes often become entangled in a software development cycle that is driven by a host of technology and resource issues, and is insufficiently responsive to the business sponsors' needs. In effect, the owners of the business policy lose control over its expression and evolution when it is handed off to be embedded in a software solution, and never regain control.

This white paper details how Business Rules Management Systems (BRMS) can deliver the flexibility and agility that traditional software applications fail to provide. Learn how this technology can be used to enhance the entire policy management infrastructure of the enterprise, creating enhanced alignment of business and IT. Discover why software developed using BRMS are able to effectively accomplish the following:
•   Implement rule changes according the business rule lifecycle.
•   Author rules in business language.
•   Manage rules throughout their life cycle.
