Sparkling Logic Releases Decision Management for Enterprise Projects

Kyoto, Japan

Delivering on the promise of enterprise-wide decision management

Sparkling Logic today announced the general availability of the Kyoto release of their SMARTS™ next-generation decision management system. This release is focused on simplifying the management of truly complex decision management projects where decision logic is often shared and re-used in multiple decisions or in variations of the same decision.

Many organizations invest in business rule or decision management systems to help them simplify, manage and automate their complex decision logic but most offerings don’t deliver on the promise. The latest SMARTS release is the only decision management offering to enable true enterprise decision management with support for cascading decision logic, hierarchical tags, cross-project views and updates, and decision repository replication.

Operational decisions, such as insurance underwriting and claims processing, often vary by geography, line of business, or product. For example, in a typical insurance underwriting decision, there are business rules that determine the eligibility of the insurance application where there is a common set of eligibility rules and state specific rules, which can override the common rules. SMARTS’ cascading decisions capability simplifies the re-use and management of the business rules across these complex decisions.

“Many companies struggle with a growing number of business rules in their systems,” said Carole-Ann Matignon, Sparkling Logic CEO. “Though business rules are improving the maintenance of decision logic, you cannot just wrap your head around tens of thousands of rules very easily. Our Kyoto release addresses this very elegantly by allowing reuse with an unprecedented simplicity.”

SMARTS’ latest release is a significant step forward to enable organizations to improve their operational decisions across business processes and systems. Business-driven changes often impact multiple decisions and organizations must be able to quickly determine which decisions will be affected by a change. SMARTS is the only decision management system to support queries and views of decision artifacts across all projects in the decision repository.
