The software aims to allow organizations to move decision logic that determines the process behavior in enterprise applications into a central location. From there, SAP intends to enable business owners and IT experts to easily and instantaneously set up and change decision logic. The approach is planned to provide a cost-effective and simplified alternative to extensive application customizing, custom coding and application embedded business rules.
What is different this time with SAP is that it not only has the software for decision management but is also offering its expertise as professional services to identify high ROI opportunities partnering with firms such as Decision Management Solutions.
This being a single repository for decision logic, it enables to evolve the decision making process on a continuous basis optimizing the services and make them available without much downtime to enterprise applications. What used to be holy grail of IT experts to update the decision logic in any enterprise application, SAP NetWeaver Decision Service Management empowers domain experts to define and change decision logic without any IT staff involvement. To avoid time-consuming, error-prone duplication, it is planned that decision services being used by multiple connected enterprise applications will only need to be created once.

"SAP NetWeaver Decision Service Management intends to give organizations the ability to continuously and quickly optimize their business processes by empowering business experts to implement and change automated operational decisions in enterprise applications."
