Introduction to IBM Operational Decision Manager for Rule Authors

0 days


This course introduces rule authors to IBM Operational Decision Manager through a combination of recorded lectures and a hands-on lab exercise.

The course provides an overview of business rule and decision management concepts before introducing IBM Operational Decision Manager.

You then learn about the rule authoring and management features in the Decision Center Business console, which is the primary Operational Decision Manager tool for rule authors.

In the lab exercise, you use the Business console to view and edit rules, run tests and simulations, and deploy completed rules.
