IBM® Operational Decision Manager (IBM ODM) provides an elegant development environment, along with dedicated, business user interfaces, for automating and governing frequently occurring, repeatable business decisions across processes and applications.

IBM Operational Decision Manager, built on the success of IBM ILOG® JRules, consists of two components, which form a platform for managing and executing business rules and business events.

  • IBM Decision Center provides an integrated repository and management components, allowing subject matter experts to maintain and govern their business decisions.
  • IBM Decision Server provides the runtime components to automate decision logic, enabling the detection of business situations and precise response based on the context of the interaction.

WA2209 Developing Event Solutions for WebSphere Operational Decision Management 8.0

This 4-day instructor-led course introduces application developers to IBM WebSphere Operational Decision Management V8 modules for developing event-based solutions.

Through instructor-led presentations, hands-on lab exercises, and a case study, you learn about the WebSphere Operational Decision Management V8 concepts, processes, and procedures that are needed to develop and implement an integrated business event solution. The course begins by introducing you to an architectural and technical overview of WebSphere Operational Decision Management V8. Subsequent units and exercises cover how to develop business event solutions by using Event Designer to define event rules, action, and business objects. You learn the characteristics of business rules and event rules, and build an event project with information technology assets. The course also covers technology connectors, deployment, and integrating rules with event projects. You learn how to use the event test widget in Business Space to test application logic, and build their own dashboard for monitoring business events. Finally, you learn the fundamental concepts of governance so that they can support lifecycle control.

WA2211 Managing Business Decisions with WebSphere Operational Decision Management 8.0

This 5-day instructor-led course introduces business analysts to IBM WebSphere Operational Decision Management V8. You learn the concepts and skills that are necessary to capture, author, validate, and manage business rules with WebSphere Operational Decision Management.

The course focuses on the iterative nature of working collaboratively with business policy experts and development teams on rule projects and event projects. Through instructor-led presentations, product demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises, you learn about the core features of Operational Decision Management, and receive intensive training in modeling business and event rule vocabulary, rule discovery, and rule authoring. The course uses realistic scenarios and a case study to illustrate the principles and good practices for discovering, analyzing, and authoring business rules and event rules.

The course begins with an overview of Operational Decision Management and the modeling concepts that are related to business rule applications. You work with Unified Modeling Notation (UML) to document use cases and draw class diagrams. You also work with real-life business models, use cases, and business policies during the rule discovery and analysis labs. After learning how to transform business policy into rules, you learn how to write rules in Decision Center and Rule Designer, including the Decision Center Business Console, which is new to version 8. You then run tests and simulations with Decision Validation Services.

Subsequent units and exercises introduce you to business event processing and the role of business analysts in planning an event-driven solution. You learn how to create an event project in Event Designer, and how to author rules in both Event Designer and Decision Center. You also use Business Space widgets to run tests and simulate business event processing.
