Abstract

IBM ODM V8.9.2

IBM Digital Business Automation is a flexible platform that automates:

  • Repetitive human tasks
  • Content management
  • Process workflows
  • Data capture
  • Business decisions:
    • Improves responsiveness and consistency while reducing costs
    • Allows businesses to make the right decisions at the right time by capturing, automating, and managing repeatable business rules.

IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) is an advanced business rules management system. It is part of the IBM Digital Business Automation platform that helps clients capture, automate, and govern frequent, repeatable business decisions. ODM adds real-time decision making to clients' day-to-day operations. It can help ensure their applications remain current and well aligned with their changing business objectives.

The ODM offerings include a full edition and also an Express edition. They can address the incremental requirements from basic rules to full decision management:

  • ODM Server is a single offering that combines what was previously licensed separately as Decision Center, Decision Server Advanced, and Decision Server Standard.
    • Enables new, simplified licensing and allows clients to adapt the decision logic of applications at the speed of business. Its dedicated rule authoring and validation environments for business stakeholders gives visibility into, control over, and automation of point-in-time business decisions.
    • Now includes support and specific deliverables to run Decision Center and Decision Server Rules within IBM Cloud Private.
    • Includes Decision Server Insights capabilities that help capture events, build context, and apply them to operational decisions in real time. Clients can detect situations as they occur to present risks or opportunities, and to enable the appropriate action.
  • ODM Server Express is the new name for an entry-point offering that is designed for initial business rules projects as it is licensed for a limited quality of service and a limited number of deployments. ODM Server Express only includes Decision Server Rules and Decision Center components and cannot be used with IBM Cloud Private.

ODM V8.9.2 supports organizations in virtually every industry by:

  • Automating and governing operational decision making across business processes and applications to help improve business insight and ensure consistent outcomes
  • Helping detect opportunities and risks in real time
  • Easily and consistently helping business stakeholders to implement, test, and deploy decision changes to meet new market demands and policy requirements
  • Helping stakeholders understand how business decisions that drive operations are made
  • Applying decisions consistently across applications

For additional benefits of ODM, see IBM Knowledge Center.

IBM ODM V8.9.1

IBM Digital Process Automation offers a set of solutions that allows clients to adapt their operations to achieve a better client centricity. ODM, a key offering in the Digital Process Automation portfolio, allows businesses to automate and manage day-to-day operational decisions and get greater visibility and control over how those decisions are made in their organizations. It provides a comprehensive and easy-to-use platform that allows clients to capture, automate, and manage frequently occurring and repeatable business decisions. As a result, clients can:

  • Identify opportunities more easily.
  • Respond to market demands quickly.
  • Minimize risks.
  • Operate consistently.

The ODM offerings include Advanced, Standard, and Express editions that address the incremental requirements from basic rules to full decision management:

  • ODM Express provides an entry point that is designed for initial business rules projects.
  • ODM Standard allows clients to adapt decision logic of applications at the speed of business. Its dedicated, rule authoring and validation environments for business stakeholders gives visibility into control over and automation of point-in-time business decisions.
  • ODM Advanced builds on the capabilities of ODM Standard with Decision Server Insights that helps capture events, build context, and apply them to operational decisions in real time. Clients can detect situations as they occur to present risks or opportunities, and to enable the appropriate action.

ODM supports organizations in virtually every industry by:

  • Automating and governing operational decision making across business processes and applications to help improve business insight and ensure consistent outcomes
  • Helping detect opportunities and risks in real time
  • Easily and consistently helping business stakeholders to implement, test, and deploy decision changes to meet new market demands and policy requirements

It is delivered as a Docker image on Docker Hub, combined with an Eclipse plugin for Rule Designer, the development environment. ODM for Developers is also available on IBM Cloud Private.

For ODM clients who are already using ODM V8.9.1, ODM V8.9.2 should be considered a fix pack for ODM V8.9.1. It is available for download on FixCentral , for incremental installation to ODM V8.9 or ODM V8.9.1. ODM V8.9.2 is fully compatible with ODM V8.9 and ODM V8.9.1 and should be applied as soon as possible.

ODM V8.9.2 is also available from Passport Advantage for full installation and can also be used to upgrade from previous releases of ODM.

ODM Server V8.9.2 is now a single, orderable part to form a comprehensive platform for the management and execution of business rules and business events. Components include:

  • Decision Server Rules

    Provides specific runtime and development components that are designed to automate and manage decision logic that is based on business rules.

  • Decision Center

    Provides an integrated repository and management components for line-of-business, subject-matter experts to directly participate in the definition and governance of rules-based, decision logic.
