What is SAP NetWeaver DSM?

SAP NetWeaver DSM is an licensable add-on to SAP NetWeaver that is based on the Business Rules Framework plus (BRFplus) covering the following:
  • Authoring & management of decisions
    Domain experts own and change implemented decisions by modeling the rules and generate the source code for the rule objects in an up-to-date design time system.
  • Deployment & execution
    You deploy the generated code to your managed systems in the productive environment that may be based on a lower release of SAP NetWeaver. The non-disruptive manner allows permanent and incremental decision optimizations.
  • Repository for storage and lifecycle management  
    You have an overview of all decision services in all systems, their deployments and execution logs.

Why using SAP NetWeaver DSM?

  • Implementation of BRFplus-driven rules logic in a system environment as of SAP NetWeaver 2004
  • Central creation of rules and decisions with deployment of one decision service into multiple systems
  • Automated business decisions with full transparency for better decision quality
  • Clear separation of decisions from processes that allows direct and as-off deployment with immediate and planned validity of new decisions services with no downtime = agile but robust systems
