Red Hat, a provider of enterprise open source solutions, has introduced a decision management platform and low-code development tool intended 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 designed to enable organizations to quickly build applications that automate business decisions.
“The notion of low-code development is less about eliminating code or cutting traditional programmers out of the application development process, and more about helping business and IT users to do what they need to do quickly and efficiently, and in a complementary manner,” said Mike Piech, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat. “Ultimately, what low-code tools should offer - and what we have built with Red Hat Decision Manager - is not a platform geared toward one or the other, but rather a rich and tightly integrated feature set designed to provide a better user experience regardless of whether you are a business analyst or hard-core developer.”
Red Hat Decision Manager 7 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 modeler.
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-premises within a customer's data center, or as containerized services on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
