IBM Operational Decision Manager v8.9.2: Developing Rule Solutions Course Details:

Gain an overview of Operational Decision Manager, which is composed of two main environments: Decision Server for technical users and Decision Center for business users. The course outlines the collaboration between development and business teams during project development.

 Through instructor-led presentations and hands-on lab exercises, you’ll learn about the core features of Decision Server, which is the primary working environment for developers. You’ll design decision services and work with the object models that are required to author and execute rule artifacts. You’ll also gain experience with deployment and execution, and work extensively with Rule Execution Server. In addition, you’ll become familiar with rule authoring so that you can support business users to set up and customize the rule authoring and validation environments. To conclude, you’ll learn how to use Operational Decision Manager features to support decision governance.
