Publisher Comments:

"SOAs and business rules are two of the hottest and most misunderstood topics in our industry. Graham's book does a very good job of explaining these concepts and presenting their symbiotic relationship to each other."

—David Marco, President, EWSolutions, Author of "Universal Meta Data Model" and "Building and Managing the Meta Data Repository" Universally Recognized as the world's leading authority on Meta Data Management.

Business rules management system (BRMS) is a software tool that works alongside enterprise IT applications. It enables businesses to automate decision-making processes.  Business rules represent any type of business data such as policies, procedures or regulations that define or constrain some aspect of a business.

International expert Ian Graham reveals best practice in modern enterprise system development.  He clearly demonstrates how to align IT with business goals.

Business Rules Management and Service Oriented Architecture will give you a greater understanding of:

  • The need for service-oriented architecture;
  • How the former depends on component-based development;
  • The technical features of a BRMS;
  • How to create a pattern language for BRMS development.

A BRMS could enable your business to reap the rewards of lower maintenance costs, greater business agility, enhanced decision-making and increased revenue. Strengthen your business by deploying this approach.
