m-Power's Business Rules Designer Automates Business Processes Without Coding
March 2016 Oak Brook, IL
Today, software developer mrc announces the release of the Business Rules Designer within m-Power. m-Power is a web application development platform that businesses use across their organizations to create web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.
What are business rules?
Unique to every organization, business rules are custom database procedures, programs, or scripts that define business processes. They provide the rules an automated business process must follow when it runs. For example, business rules drive common tasks like:
- Logical email processing
- Nightly scheduled jobs
- Workflow automation and other processes
However, creating these custom business rules requires lengthy development cycles and manual coding. Business users often wait weeks or months for IT departments to create the custom code needed to implement their business rules.
What does this enhancement offer?
With the new Business Rules Designer, m-Power users can now automate the entire process. The Business Rules Designer lets both non-technical and technical users create business rule logic without coding. This feature helps m-Power users:
- Save time
Because the Business Rules Designer uses a point-and-click interface, it eliminates manual coding. This reduces the development process from weeks or months to hours or days.
- Remove pressure from the IT department
Because the Business Rules Designer lets business users create rules on their own, it removes pressure from the IT department. Since business rule creation is no longer an IT-specific task, it frees the IT department up for more business-critical projects.
- Simplify maintenance
Because the Business Rules Designer stores business rules in easily-understandable steps, it simplifies maintenance. Rather than tracking down the business rule developer and modifying custom code, business users can understand and maintain every rule on their own.
"The Business Rules Designer ease of use will simplify the difficult and time-consuming task of creating business rules from scratch," says Tyler Wassell, mrc's Director of Development. "As a result, m-Power users can easily automate manual business processes quickly—without the need for manual coding."###
