Jun 26 15
Progress Software Corporation has announced the new release of Progress Corticon Business Rules Management System, or BRMS. The Corticon Rules without Limits system makes it possible for business and IT professionals to collaborate on business rule development, execution and management and deploy on either Java or .NET platforms. With the Corticon Rules without Limits system, rule authors can build, develop, test and deploy rules in their platform of choice-Java or .NET. With easier management of business rules across multiple servers for easier adoption and scaling, rules can be shared more easily across applications, business lines or even companies. Progress has consistently built on its history of product innovation to make the Corticon BRMS the business rules engine. In addition to cross-platform support, other key new features in Corticon BRMS 5.5 include: Rule flow branching, including improved flexibility and ease of use for the creation of complex decision services and large rule flows, while maintaining full backwards compatibility with existing rule flows; Adaptive and reusable rule flows, including a modular approach for easier ruleflow creation; Improved thread pooling for decision service execution and support for auto-scaling; A new high performance logging subsystem, allowing log files to be used as an audit trail for runtime execution; and REST API for server management of custom control over server configuration and deployment. Progress Corticon BRMS delivers high-quality, high-fidelity, high-performance automated business decisions. It helps increase agility of decision change processes and enables new insights into the connections between individual recurring decisions and business performance. By separating decisions from processes, the Corticon system helps both business and IT users quickly create or reuse business rules. Moreover, business analysts can identify, automate and deploy business rules and decision systems in collaboration with IT, without the need for expensive custom coding.

In addition, the new DataDirect drivers: Provide natural relational views for SQL-based applications; Optimize performance for any application, without compromising functionality; Enable users to query, sort and/or aggregate all data stored in arrays via SQL; Normalize schema-less MongoDB data into relational views; and Maximize MongoDB performance via optimized joins across tables. In addition to MongoDB and SparkSQL, Progress offers DataDirect drivers for a variety of big data sources including Cassandra, Impala, SAP HANA, and Apache Hive, as well as commercial distributions of Hive from Amazon, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Pivotal.
