Sapiens International Corporation (Holon, Israel), has expanded its business decision management solution, Sapiens DECISION Suite, with the introduction of DECISION InfoHub and DECISION STEP. The vendor asserts that with the addition of the new software (DECISION InfoHub) and service (DECISION STEP) components, Sapiens DECISION Suite is the only available solution that offers a complete business decision management solution, from design and platform, to end-to-end services, to address the challenges of translating business logic to code. The new components are available immediately as standalone offerings, or components of the suite.
DECISION InfoHub solves the challenge of wiring and integration down to the wide range of data sources, according to Sapiens. InfoHub offers Data virtualization via what the vendor terms a business-friendly representation of the information sources necessary to execute operational decisions by collecting, transforming and enriching data from heterogeneous, large and complex environments. DECISION InfoHub includes a real-time, fully distributed data management capability that offers personalized and always-updated customer and product views, the vendor says.
The DECISION STEP services offering is based on The Decision Model, Sapiens’ approach for discovering, capturing and modeling decision logic. With DECISION STEP, Sapiens DECISION users can quickly learn and employ The Decision Model principles, implement and maintain DECISION Suite, best manage decision management projects to deliver successful results, and gain the internal expertise necessary to scale and deploy effective decision management across the enterprise, the vendor says.
“We strongly believe that the new components uniquely position Sapiens to fully meet enterprises’ business decision management needs,” comments Rami Doron, managing director, Sapiens DECISION. “To truly solve the decision management challenge, companies require three elements – a model, such as The Decision Model; a complete software platform, which we provide with our Sapiens DECISION Suite; and the method and skill-set to deploy and manage effectively from a services component, such as DECISION STEP.”
Sapiens markets the DECISION Suite to the banking, insurance, retirement services, healthcare and government sectors. The vendor cites Serco—a company that delivers public services on behalf of national, state and local governments—as a client that has benefited from DECSION by expediting its application delivery.
Meeting Operational and Regulatory Demand
“Sapiens DECISION has empowered Serco to automate critical decisions in government-related case management activities, helping to execute nearly 1.5 million transactions in our first two months of use for a federal health client,” comments Jason Adolf, director of business process management, Serco. “By externalizing and managing the key decision logic using Sapiens DECISION, Serco can deliver applications faster and more efficiently, and change those applications quickly to meet regulatory or operational demand.”
In addition to the new Sapiens DECISION InfoHub and Sapiens DECISION STEP, the Sapiens DECISION Suite also includes: Sapiens DECISION Manager, which helps organizations manage the business logic that drives their automated business decisions. Sapiens DECISION Deployment Adapters, for transforming business logic and executing it in the chosen architecture. Sapiens DECISION Execution, which performs business logic execution in Sapiens’ integrated execution environment.
