The Be Informed Platform enables you to capture and maintain business rules about your organization's products, their constraints and relevant policies in human-readable models. These product and decision models are directly executable and reusable in both front-end and back-end processes and can be offered as a service to third parties. And can be used to both perform automated decisions and to have a highly contextualized, rich dialog with an end user.
Model-driven decisions. Decisions are captured using the modeling tools in the Be Informed Platform, based on the customizable metamodel for Products & Decisions. The modeling tools allow for defining constraints-based knowledge models that are highly intuitive and human-readable, which facilitates the ability to take ownership to a great extent. As these knowledge models are immediately executable, there is no need for code generation or any other form of translation of business rules into executable programming code.
Contextual compliancy. The Be Informed Platform's advanced inferencing engine is goal-oriented. Based on the specific situation at hand it applies only those rules that are relevant, ensuring both compliancy and efficiency.
Automatic and manual decision support. The goal-oriented inferencing engine determines which rules are relevant for a specific situation. Only when not all information needed to apply the rules is available, will the user be asked for input. When all needed information is available, a decision will be made automatically.
Reusable decisions. In order to guarantee that decisions are based on the same business rules throughout your organization, you can integrate the decision support into all applications, processes and channels in which decisions are taken.
Decision-driven documents. Any communication about a decision should reflect the actual decisions of the process. The Be Informed Platform enables you to base the contents of documents on the same rules that were used for the decision and the information used in the process.
Traceability of relevant regulations and policies. Business rules are based on original sources, such as legislation and policy documents. In the Be Informed Platform, business rules can be linked to their original source. This ensures both traceability for rule management and transparancy when rules are applied.
