For years, Corticon has been a key driving force of business transformation, delivering unprecedented business agility and control to enterprises of all sizes and industry segments
Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2008
Corticon Technologies, Inc., the leader in model-driven Business Rules Management Systems (BRMS), announced today the immediate availability of the Corticon Business Rules Server for .NET product, which together with Corticon Business Rules Modeling Studio comprises the industry's first and only model-driven BRMS for pure Microsoft environments.
Corticon offers the only BRMS solution that enables the deployment flexibility and investment protection of modeling once, and deploying into heterogeneous environments. This compares favorably with offerings such as Ilog Jrules and Ilog Rules for .NET, where the Microsoft .NET® and Java execution environments require separate and distinct rule definition, which is both technical in nature and not easily interchanged.* By contrast, Corticon's business-friendly rule models can be executed without modification in a Microsoft .NET® environment, a J2EE environment, or both.
Corticon's BRMS for Microsoft-centric organizations includes complete rule authoring capabilities in its Windows-based Corticon Studio and execution of decision services in its Microsoft .NET-native Corticon Server for .NET. Lifecycle management of rule assets can be performed by Corticon's Business Rules Collaborator, or with Microsoft's SharePoint or Visual Source Safe. Corticon also offers code-free data integration through its Corticon Enterprise Data Connector, which accesses Microsoft SQL Server data consumed and/or manipulated during decision service execution.
Corticon Server for .NET exploits Corticon's Design-Time Inferencing architecture to provide robust, linear-scaling performance, and comprehensive auditing and control. Benefits of Corticon Server for .NET include:
- Performance: Corticon Server for .NET executes decision services optimized at design-time
- Scalability: Leverages Microsoft IIS to scale linearly with increasing system resources
- Audit-ability: Comprehensive rule messages enable complete traceability of every rule that executes and its relationship to the underlying business policy
- Transparency: Decision logic is expressed in business-friendly models that is readily comprehended by all in the organization
- Control: Corticon Server for .NET provides robust versioning and effective dating to maximize control and deployment flexibility
"For years, Corticon has been a key driving force of business transformation, delivering unprecedented business agility and control to enterprises of all sizes and industry segments," says Corticon Founder and CEO, Dr. Mark Allen. "With the release of Corticon Server for .NET, we bring all of the benefits of Corticon BRMS solutions -- including rule authoring on day one and lightening quick maintenance of automated decisions-- to organizations that have standardized on Microsoft .NET®."
"As a recognized leader for innovation on the Microsoft .NET® platform, Global 360 understands that .NET-centric companies are hungry for comprehensive and integrated business processes and business rules solutions," said Ben Cody, VP of Marketing and Product Management, Global 360, Inc. "Our partnership with Corticon has resulted in a combined solution that uniquely satisfies an organization's need for quickly assembled process- and rules-driven applications running on the Microsoft stack."
Corticon's BRMS drives decision automation within organizations, helping them to make better, faster decisions by managing the rules that drive their business. The Corticon BRMS empowers business domain experts to model, analyze, test and save business rules as executable decision services. These decision services run in both the .NET and J2EE environments, and easily integrate into enterprise applications, Services Oriented Architectures (SOA), and Business Process Management (BPM) systems.
