We have released the first version of our Decision Management Systems Platform Technology report. This report is available free for download from http://www.decisionmanagementsolutions.com/decision-management-technology.
One of the challenges is that multiple product categories exist in the market for the capabilities we discuss in the report. These product categories often overlap.
While there are many Business Rules Management Systems that just manage decision logic, there are also products that combine the management of decision logic with optimization or with building predictive analytic models. There are also products that are called Decision Managers or Business Decision Management Systems that manage decision logic and other Decision Management products that manage decision logic and build predictive analytic models. Some Predictive Analytic Workbenches include in-database scoring capabilities, some package this separately while model monitoring and tuning is similarly sometimes packaged separately.
Future releases of the report will include additional guidance on categorizing products and on navigating the available product categories. You can download the report, and all future versions of it, for free at http://www.decisionmanagementsolutions.com/decision-management-technology
