This 5-day instructor-led course introduces business analysts to the IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules Business Rule Management System (BRMS), and teaches the concepts and skills necessary to capture, author, validate, and manage business rules using IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules BRMS V7.1.
Through instructor-led presentations, product demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises, students learn the core features of WebSphere ILOG JRules BRMS V7.1, and how to work collaboratively with business policy experts and development teams. In this course, students receive intensive training in modeling business rule vocabulary, rule discovery, and rule authoring. A realistic case study is used throughout the course to demonstrate the principles and best practices for discovering, analyzing, and authoring business rules.
The course begins with an overview of JRules BRMS and the modeling concepts related to business rule applications. Students work with Unified Modeling Language (UML) notation to document use cases and draw class diagrams, and 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, students get an in-depth look at rule authoring. Students work with rules that are based on an actual business model, which lets them experience some of the questions and issues that can arise when users author rules that reflect complex business decisions and models. Students also closely examine the business case study and its underlying business object model (BOM) to understand how the BOM is reflected in the rules. The rule authoring exercises build on each other, and demonstrate the relationship between the BOM and the vocabulary that is available in the rule editors.
In addition, hands-on exercises with Decision Validation Services enable students to run tests and simulations. Students work with the Rule Team Server management features that support rule maintenance, including project versioning, baselines, project analysis, reports, and permission management for sharing rules between multiple users. They also learn how to identify governance issues and use JRules BRMS features to support rule governance.
