Why a Decision Platform?
What is a Decision Platform?
A Decision Platform is an end-to-end solution for the enterprise decision management lifecycle, including business rule management, analytics, process management and machine learning/artificial intelligence.
A business rules management system (BRMS) is a subset technology within a Decision Platform. It allows for authoring, testing, storage and execution of business decisions, without code. Managing decision logic outside of code enables it to be maintained without programming, often by less technical users.
For example, the logic that determines whether you qualify for a loan (and at what interest rate) can be defined outside of code so that as marketplace conditions change, the rules associated with lending—rules associated with minimum income, credit score or debt to loan ratio—can be updated without changing code.
What Does InRule Do?
At InRule Technology®, our vision has always been to make it easier and more cost-effective to write and manage decisions in InRule® than to manage decisions in code. We strive to make automation accessible.
InRule empowers technical and business users to change decision logic and calculations in applications—with less effort, cost, and risk than programming—to help organizations keep pace with changing marketplace and customer needs.
What kind of problems are solved with InRule?
InRule is used in a variety of industries in any situation where enterprise decisions are complex and/or change frequently. Some of the common uses of InRule include:
- Eligibility for social programs, loans and insurance policies

How long do projects take?
Some clients with less complex projects have gone from downloading InRule to production in less than 60 days. Other more complex projects—with integration among many platforms and business decisions being made across organizations—have taken 18 months to get into production.
The majority of our clients go from license to production in about six months.
Can business people write and manage decision logic with InRule?
Yes! In our 2021 InRule User Community survey, we found that 44% of survey respondents stated that over 60% of their users are business users – not developers.
Getting started with InRule
What’s the best way for me to determine whether InRule is right for my organization?
Prospective customers find that downloading a free trial of InRule and participating in a demo with one of our pre-sales engineers are the most useful tools for determining whether InRule is right for them.
When you download our software, you have access to a fully functional version of the software for 30 days, along with the assistance of a pre-sales engineer. You also have access to documentation, product “how-to” videos, sample code and best practices documents.
Most of our clients have also benefited from a live demonstration, usually delivered via web. This is a chance for you to see our technology in action and to ask your key technical and business questions.
