Business Rule Engines (BRE)

Business Rule Engines (BRE) are a type of programming or software. They manage decision-making and act as a logic tree of "if/then" operations. They can also be viewed as more complex flow charts. Users can insert data into a BRE and it will determine the answer to a question. When executed correctly, they can enable decision-making and remove ambiguity or questions from making a business decision.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Business Rule Engines (BRE)

SMBs could use BRE to determine the salary of a new employee. Businesses could set up a series of "rules" that determine how much an employee gets paid. For example, a starting salary could be set at a certain point. Certain extra factors can then add to that salary such as prior experience or educational attainment.
