SAS® Business Rules Manager

Create, publish and manage business rules in one place

Create business rules. Manage business rule vocabularies. Develop and test rule flows. Publish rule flow packages for deployment. Monitor rule execution. Trace lineage. Govern usage. And do it all in one place. SAS Business Rules Manager provides a central repository for business rules created with the solution, and a common platform for managing rule development and deployment, with workflow authorization throughout.


Create and maintain rules – no programming required.

Simple, automated tools for creating and managing vocabularies, entities and terms reduce the time and effort required to create business rules. It's wizard-driven so business users can create their own rules without having to know SAS or any other programming language.

Simplify rule logic updates in a single managed environment.

A single rule-management environment enables different systems and personnel across your organization to share and collaborate on rule development and use. Updates and changes follow defined workflows and are documented for full traceability.

Visually understand impact.

Better understand rule flows and their data dependencies using automatically generated graphics to illustrate connected actions and full lineage. Interactively test rule logic, and visually inspect and review detailed rule fire analysis before deploying into operations. SAS Visual Analytics provides an interactive visual dashboard and reporting environment for in-production rule behavior analysis.

Govern and control use.

The solution includes an integrated workflow for process customization and ensures the traceability of versioning and publishing activity, including approvals, version locking and version history. Granular control of rule capabilities provides role security, ensuring that users are appropriately authorized.
