Without restarting the application, rules can be deployed directly on the server

What is our primary use case?

One of our clients is a mobile insurance company and there are many business rules. Let's say a person has filed a claim for his lost mobile. The software identifies the person, whether he has enrolled in coverage for that mobile or not, whether the insurance has expired, etc. We have implemented those rules in Blaze Advisor and it's provided as a service that can be consumed in the application used by the customer service representative.

Pros and Cons

  • "The rules management application is the best feature because BAs or even, perhaps, a businessperson, can directly create rules, change rules, and deploy them to production directly."
  • "I would like to see more help on the internet and more training over the internet. They only have a few blogs there, so that should be increased."

What other advice do I have?

It will reduce turnaround time for implementing business policies, minimizing the time it takes to do so by enabling them to be directly deployed to production. It also provides deployment without restarting the server. When new rules are created by the business, rules they want to deploy on the production server, it can be done without downtime for that server.
