Simplify Managing Complex Decisions for SAP ERP Systems

For many organizations, the ERP system is like the beating heart driving essential processes and linking key technologies that power the business. Unfortunately, these systems can quickly become large, unwieldy and costly, especially when business logic is hard-coded within the application.

As these systems grow larger and larger, costs continue to skyrocket, and it becomes more complicated and time-consuming for developers to make changes to business logic that is buried within the application.

SAP users are turning to InRule as an alternative to hard-coded logic within their ERP systems.

By centralizing and managing business logic with InRule®, and integrating with SAP ERP systems, enterprises can capitalize on the strengths of two technologies to power essential processes and business rules – while bringing costs back under control.

Extend the Value of Your BizTalk Server Investment with InRule

Organizations with complex business logic or who want to empower business users to manage business rules need a more intuitive authoring environment and more granular rule management than is included with BizTalk Server. InRule extends your investment in BizTalk Server by empowering the people who understand your business to write and manage rules.

  • Write rules with an intuitive, menu-driven approach using the business language editor

  • Manage the security and change control of rules via irCatalog

Three ways to call InRule from a BizTalk Orchestration

  • Create a custom, static .NET method with irSDK and call it from an expression shape
  • Use irAdapter for BizTalk Server, an adapter included with InRule
  • Call generic static methods from the expression shape available in InRule

Windows Workflow Foundation Decision Platform: Manage Complex Logic within Windows Workflow Foundation Workflows

You can run the InRule Decision Platform from a WF workflow without writing a single line of code using an InRule activity for WF.

An InRule Activity for Windows Workflow Foundation

  • Drag and drop the InRule activity shape onto a workflow
  • Specify the source of the rules (e.g. irCatalog) and the state through the properties window
