Red Hat Unveils Low-Code Decision Management Offering
Red Hat has introduced Red Hat Decision Manager 7, a decision management platform to simplify the development and deployment of rules-based applications and services. Red Hat Decision Manager 7 is the next generation of the company’s business rules management offering, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, and is aimed at enabling organizations to build applications that automate business decisions.
According to Red Hat, business processes can play an important role in helping organizations to improve efficiency and reduce workloads. Automating these processes can lead to more efficient operations and more accurate outcomes—particularly for complex or repetitive tasks—and help organizations better respond to changing market conditions and business needs.
Low-code development tools such as Red Hat Decision Manager enable business users to take a more active role in application development and, by fostering greater collaboration between business and IT stakeholders, can accelerate the application development process.
The new platform delivers an improved user experience and a more robust set of tools specifically designed to enable business users and citizen developers to directly modify business logic, which can help IT re-prioritize resources to support other tasks. Feature highlights include support for the direct execution of models expressed in Decision Model and Notation (DMN); redesigned decision tables and a new decision table editor; and an improved data modeller.
Built for both traditional and cloud-native applications, the offering can be used to create rules-based decision and planning microservices that can be deployed on-premise within a customer's data center, or as containerized services on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Red Hat OpenShift enables customers to enhance business value and accelerate digital innovation for their process-driven applications using DevOps capabilities such as automated testing and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD), and to govern them using practices designed to provide greater security, scalability and interoperability.
Red Hat Decision Manager is available for download by members of the Red Hat Developers community. Customers can get the latest updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
