Automate and govern repeatable decisions


IBM® Operational Decision Manager is a full-featured, easy-to-use platform for capturing, automating and governing frequent, repeatable business decisions. It consists of two components, IBM Decision Center and IBM Decision Server. They form the platform for managing and executing business rules and business events to help you make decisions faster, improve responsiveness, minimize risks and seize opportunities.

IBM Operational Decision Manager improves the quality of transaction and process-related decisions and helps determine the appropriate course of action for customers, partners and internal interactions. It improves business insight and outcomes and helps you detect opportunities and risks. It also enables you to implement, test and deploy decision changes and understand how decisions are made and apply them consistently across processes and applications.
