continuously seek to introduce innovative solutions to the market, and
leverage our experience in delivering large scale business solutions.
DECISION provides a unique value proposition as it was designed from the
business need to visually manage the organization's 'knowledge base', mapped
onto the operational systems, such as ERP, and allows potential changes to be
easily and transparently managed into best decisions. "

(KPI), and co-author of the book "The Decision Model: A Business Logic
Framework Linking Business and Technology" said, "Barbara von Halle, our
founder, and I are excited to see the innovative technology that is built
specifically to support The Decision Model and the enterprise scale of
Business Decision Management implicit at BDMM level 4. Business logic is what
drives the decisions in all businesses. Instead of trying to manage the logic
one-business-rule at a time, The Decision Model groups the rules into their
natural logical sets, creating a structure that makes the model so simple to
understand, communicate and manage. We have chosen to partner with Sapiens
for their ability to deliver a robust business decision management solution
that represents business logic to business users."
