X- Rules: Automated business rule analysis and extraction
X-Rules documents your business logic
You cannot improve what you do not know and do not measure. X-Rules gives you a complete picture of the rules that run your business, even ones that were implemented 25 years earlier. Using X-Rules, Business Analysts can read rules in pseudo code. And developers can implement new programs with a complete understanding of how the program impacts existing rules and processes, eliminating extra testing and cost.
X-Rules instantly exposes your complete business rules inventory
