James Taylor, one of the leading experts on decision management, recently wrote an update on his blog (http://www.jtonedm.com/2016/05/17/first-look-sparkling-logic-update-3/) featuring Sparkling Logic’s products. James is the CEO and a Principal Consultant of Decision Management Solutions. He is a well-known author and speaker on using decision modeling, business rules, and analytics to improve decision making to enable a more agile, analytic, and adaptive business.
In his recent blog post on Sparkling Logic (http://www.jtonedm.com/2016/05/17/first-look-sparkling-logic-update-3/), James does a great job of summarizing the key features of PENCIL Decision Modeler and the more recent features we’ve added to SMARTS Decision Manager since he last published an update on us. He highlights key features of PENCIL including the DMN decision diagram and glossary, and the ability to generate a project in SMARTS for execution, testing, simulation and deployment.
For SMARTS, he covers features we’ve added since his last update in 2013 (http://jtonedm.com/2013/07/17/first-look-sparkling-logic-update-2/) including:
- Cascading or inherited decisions
- Native PMML support
- Lookup models
- Champion/Challenger testing
- Lifecycle management and task automation
Most of these are unique SMARTS features not found in other decision management products. **Spoiler Alert** He also mentions a feature in our upcoming release, Quebec, which supports graphical investigation of rules fired for specific transaction.
James’ “First Look” product updates are a great source to learn details about product offerings in the decision management space and we appreciate the recent update on our products. His blog and the Decision Management Solutions website are great resources to learn more about decision modeling and management.
