What is a Business Rules Engine (BRE)?

Business rules are defined as rule sets or reusable objects embedded into a workflow (or form) to control what is next triggered depending on the conditions present. A business rules engine then manages those business processes separating business logic information in a way that allows for improved performance and increased agility.

Often it is used to evaluate data that was entered into a form field to return a list or value and then make a dynamic decision based on the result. Business rules engine software allows users to manage and create business rules that capture workflow to improve business performance.

Maximized enterprise performance is the name of the game in today’s highly-competitive market. High levels of efficiency, lean models, effective workflows, responsive customer interactions, and good governance all lead to a healthy bottom line.
