Business rules are the core of process automation

Complex projects usually cannot be controlled by simple process chains. When reaching a certain level of complexity, it makes sense to decouple business rules from the remaining process logic. This can be achieved by using a Business Rule Engine (BRE) to manage, maintain and execute business rules.

Graphical editor for business rules

An integrated graphical editor provides an intuitive interface for defining and modifying business rules via decision tables:

  • Rules can be simulated directly
  • Automated test routines for error-free operation
  • Direct integration of process data and tool support
Whether DMN or Excel spreadsheet: AXON Ivy supports multiple languages and notations to define rules.

DMN & Excel rule formats

The Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform supports multiple rule description languages and notations. The most complex is probably the OMG® standard DMN, for which the platform offers full execution support for models at conformance level 3.

 

A simple alternative is provided by Microsoft Excel decision tables, which can be used within the Rule Engine. End users can define low-code rules within a tool that they are already comfortable with.

The Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform supports the modeling of business rules with BPMN 2.0 elements.

BPMN element for applying rules

Thanks to this BPMN activity, rule execution can be directly integrated into the respective process. Like any other process activity, this element can be defined with a low-code user interface:

  • Rule execution and all governance processes can be customized
  • Rules are logged and can be tracked in an audit-proof manner

With the integration possibilities of the Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform, rules can be published and linked in other systems.

AXON Ivy integrates the rule engine Drools, offering powerful capabilities when defining sets of rules.

Scalable, integrated business rule engine

The Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform offers a powerful business rule engine that can be seamlessly integrated into the IT environment:

  • Highly scalable, clusterable business rules engine
  • Java-based for direct application integration
  • Rule Services can be added for rule execution in a service-oriented architecture
  • Audit-proof execution logs and statistics

AXON Ivy integrates the open source rule engine Drools. Many of the Drools features are integrated into the platform's UI and API. However, the full Drools API remains accessible for very complex rule execution.
