Leveraging business rule technology means fewer errors and faster maintenance of business logic. InRule supports a spectrum of business rule authors – from subject matter experts to business analysts to developers — who can more easily write sophisticated business rules and complex calculations without costly custom programming. An integrated approach to authoring, storing, managing and executing rules can deliver consistent decisions, lower maintenance costs, and improved time to value for key applications. For decisive results, leverage rules.
Because InRule puts business rule authoring in the hands of business users, subject matter experts can easily write sophisticated business rules and complex calculations without costly custom programming. Business users can then update rules without programming changes to the application.
InRule can significantly reduce the cost of software development and maintenance. With business logic automation supported by InRule and InRule’s intuitive yet powerful authoring tools, organizations can save up to 90% of the programming and maintenance time related to business rules authoring.
InRule also helps you increase agility and adaptability. Because changes to business rules can be made easily and quickly without application changes, organizations can rapidly adapt to changing business conditions such as pricing, risk factors, and regulations.
Business decision management can additionally enhance consistency and ensure compliance. Whether driven by regulations or corporate governance, auditability of business rules is essential. InRule's centralized rule repository ensures that all application processes use the same rules and verifies that changes to rules are documented and approved according to policy.
Finally ISVs, Systems Integrators, and Technology Solution Providers can more easily differentiate products for competitive advantage. Enable your customers to tailor their own business logic and let your developers focus on other aspects of your solution.

A business rule engine is integrated into a business application to replace some or all of the business logic. How much of the application logic is controlled by the business rule engine varies depending on the type of application and logic.
For example, in some applications, such as an insurance rating program, you may decide to use the rule engine to control as much as 70% of the application logic. In other programs, such as an e-commerce application, you may choose to have the rule engine just validate the check out process. In general, logic that is subject to frequent change is best implemented using business rules.
Your application will communicate with the rule engine by specifying the rules to execute and passing in the necessary data. Once the rules execute, your application will use the rules engine results to display to the end user or to execute another process.
