SASŪ Business Rules Manager
SAS Business Rules Manager enables you to create business rules, manage business rule vocabularies, develop and test rule flows, deploy rule flow packages, and monitor rule execution. This technology allows consuming applications to deploy business rules for integration and plugs into the different modules of the decision life cycle. It also provides a common platform for rule management and deployment so business rules can be integrated easily with other SAS solutions.
SAS Business Rules Manager is also included as part of SAS Decision Manager.
The most current release is SAS Business Rules Manager 2.1.
What's New in SAS Business Rules Manager 2.1
SAS Business Rules Manager 2.1 includes several new features and enhancements.
- Integration into the SAS Decision Manager
SAS Business Rules Manager has been incorporated into the SAS Decision Manager suite of products. As a result, SAS Business Rules Manager has a new interface with the same look and feel as the other products in the SAS Decision Manager suite. SAS Business Rules Manager now has workspaces and a different set of categories as well as numerous other enhancements to its user interface.
- Authorization support
System administrators can use roles to control access to application features in SAS Business Rules Manager. Also, SAS Business Rules Manager defines several default roles when it is installed.
- Ability to define and view data tables through SAS Business Rules Manager
You can add tables that have already been registered in metadata, or you can run SAS Visual Data Builder. In addition to other features, SAS Visual Data Builder has query and data import features that enable you to build tables from spreadsheets, delimited files, and SAS data sets. After you have added a table, you can view table data, view table metadata, and create summaries of the table data from within SAS Business Rules Manager.
- Ability to generate rule flows from market basket data
SAS Business Rules Manager provides a new macro, %BRM_IMPORT_MARKET_BASKETS, which creates a rule flow using market basket data that was generated with SAS Enterprise Miner.
- New macros for importing and exporting data
You can import and export folder definitions and lookup tables between SAS Business Rules Manager and comma-delimited (CSV) files.
- Ability to view information about each of the published versions of a rule flow
The information includes the folder path to which the rule flow was published and the list of versions that have been published. For each version, SAS Business Rules Manager displays the date on which the version was published and the user ID that was used to publish the rule flow.
- Support for SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Data Server
You can choose to use the SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Data Server as a rules database. The SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Data Server is based on PostgreSQL 9.1.9.
Note: Support for the SAS Web Infrastructure Platform Data Server as a business rules database is experimental.
