Make faster, more consistent business decisions

Automation of decision processes minimizes the need for manual reviews, while ensuring consistency. The Blaze Advisor system delivers the highest decision processing speeds, for any number of rules at any level of complexity. It also makes exclusive use of Rete III, the most advanced commercially available inference engine, which benchmarks more than 300% faster than competitive engines at the highest levels of complexity.

Reduce time to market

Go to market quickly with application development that is 25% faster than conventional methods, and without IT assistance. Instead of coding rules in programming languages, new applications are developed using a rules language that closely approximates how business people think about their business, reducing errors or misunderstanding.
