WB404G - Developing Rule Solutions in IBM Operational Decision Manager V8.10

Course Eligible for IBM Digital Badge

This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course Developing Rule Solutions in IBM Operational Decision Manager V8.10 (ZB404G). This option does not require any travel.

 

This course introduces developers to IBM Operational Decision Manager V8.10. It teaches you the concepts and skills that you need to design, develop, and integrate a business rule solution with Operational Decision Manager. 

 

The course begins with an overview of Operational Decision Manager, which is composed of two main environments: Decision Server for technical users and Decision Center for business users. The course outlines the collaboration between development and business teams during project development.

 

Through instructor-led presentations and hands-on lab exercises, you learn about the core features of Decision Server, which is the primary working environment for developers. You design decision services and work with the object models that are required to author and execute rule artifacts. You gain experience with deployment and execution, and work extensively with Rule Execution Server. In addition, you become familiar with rule authoring so that you can support business users to set up and customize the rule authoring and validation environments. You also learn how to use Operational Decision Manager features to support decision governance.

 

The lab environment for this course uses Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition.

I really enjoyed the course. It was well designed given that it was online. I would recommend that the higher level courses be taken on-site, but this course was very thorough for those looking to get started with an AWS Certification.

It was a pleasant experience from registration all through the course. I just wish they would have covered 100% of the material covered by the exam.

Registration process was smooth. Follow-up reminders and content was timely. Great execution!

Outstanding job on the facilitator of this course (Ruben) and great information taught throughout the duration!

Ruben did a fantastic job facilitating this course! The only downfall is trying to cram all this information into 2 days! Incredibly overwhelming...

ExitCertified provided the participants with all the required information we needed to join the training one week in advance and ensured that we had all the required materials to make the experience as seamless as possible.
