Sagi Schliesser, CTO of Sapiens International Corporation commented, “We 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. “
Larry Goldberg, Managing Partner of Knowledge Partners International, LLC (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.”
