Low-Code No-Code Applied to Decision Management
Low-code no-code is not a new concept to Sparkling Logic. From the beginning, the founders wanted to deliver a powerful yet simple product, so that a business analyst could start with data and build decision logic with built-in predictive data analytics and execution decision analytics.
Version after version, they have achieved this vision through SMARTS, an end-to-end decision management platform that features low-code no-code for business analysts and business users to develop and manage decision logic through point-and-click operations.
For business analysts, SMARTS offers a low-code development environment in which users can express decision logic through a point-and-click user interface to connect data, experiment with decisions, monitor execution without switching between different tools to get the job done. Depending on the nature of the decision logic at hand and user preferences, business analysts can choose on the fly the most appropriate representation to capture or update their decision logic. The resulting decision logic is seamlessly deployed as a decision service without IT intervention.
To push the simplification even further, Sparkling Logic founders turned to their customers for inspiration on their needs and developed three complementary technologies:
- RedPen, a patented point-and-click technology that accelerates rule authoring without a need to know rule syntax or involve IT to author the rules
- BluePen, another patented point-and-click technology to quickly create or leverage a data model and put it into production without involving data scientists or IT
- A dynamic questionnaire to produce intelligent front-ends that reduces the number of unnecessary or redundant questions
In addition to low-code development capability for business analysts, SMARTS also elevates the decision logic to a simple web form-based interface for untrained business users. They can configure their decision strategies, test the updated decision logic, and promote the vetted changes to the next staging environment — without learning rules syntax.
These business apps offer a business abstraction for most tasks available in SMARTS related to configuration, testing and simulation, invocation and deployment management, as well as administration.
For example, credit risk specialists can configure loans, credit cards, and other banking products, and pricing specialists can control pricing tables, through a custom business app specific to their industry. The no-code business app enables business users to cope with environment changes whether they are related to internal policies, competition pressure, or industry regulation.
Furthermore, SMARTS tasks can also be automated through orchestration scripts. Business users can trigger these scripts through the click of a button, or schedule them to be performed automatically and seamlessly.
