Red Hat Decision Manager

Features and benefits

Automate decision making

When it comes to evaluating business rules to draw conclusions from live data, Red Hat® Decision Manager supports an advanced, highly scalable rules engine derived from the Drools 6 community project. With the latest algorithms and support for both forward- and backward-chaining, Decision Manager supports a range of decision automation solutions. Complex event processing (CEP) extensions from the Drools Fusion project add the ability to process time-based constraints providing advanced, real-time decision making.

The RETE algorithm included in Red Hat Decision Manager is a huge advantage, and the project team verified its effects by proof of concept... It is now possible to process eight months of production plans at the Brazil plant in approximately two minutes. This provides a system more than 10 times faster than what we use in Japan.

Optimize resources

Red Hat Decision Manager includes a unique toolkit designed to help Java developers construct applications that solve complex scheduling and resource optimization problems. Red Hat Business Optimizer is based on the JBoss® OptaPlanner community project and uses the BRMS rules engine to quickly find good solutions to problems that are otherwise extremely difficult, time-consuming, and expensive to solve. No specific knowledge of optimization techniques is required in order to use planner, making it easy for IT organizations to deliver resource scheduling and planning applications without specialized expertise and tools.

Empower business analysts and IT

Red Hat Decision Manager supports a business-friendly user interface for quick definition and simplified changes of sophisticated business knowledge for business applications governance. Simple metaphors, such as decision tables, scorecards, and domain-specific languages help IT and business users quickly create and change business rules.

Optimized for cloud and containers

Whether on-premise; virtual; or in private, public, and hybrid clouds; Red Hat Decision Manager can be hosted within a customer’s datacenter, or deployed to a private or public instance of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
