business rules management

Part of the Business terms glossary:

Business rules management (BRM) is the administration and automation of business rules. The goal of BRM is to increase organizational agility and responsiveness.

Business rules management can improve the efficiency of business processes through decision automation. This, in turn, can reduce dependency on an IT department to make changes to business logic.

An important goal of BRM is to accelerate business process management (BPM) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) initiatives and improve decision management and dynamic case management efforts.
