The offering also includes InRule Technology’s implementation guide for prescriptive guidance using rules with CRM.

Rule Customization with No Coding
InRule for Microsoft Dynamics CRM enables business analysts and other subject matter experts to author and maintain complex decision logic that otherwise requires Java script or hard code. Users can easily import entities, fields and relationships from Dynamics CRM using a wizard, and rule authoring is simplified with an intuitive, configurable interface. Rule authoring and management are tightly integrated with Dynamics CRM, making the user experience familiar and easy to learn.

Test Changes Without Modifying Data
Users can easily validate the performance and results of rules without manually entering test data. InRule for Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides simple selection of records for single-record testing and for multi-record regression testing to ensure that rule changes don’t adversely affect existing functionality.
