RDA leverages the BizTalk Business Rules Engine to manage business policies in document workflow solutions. Document management workflows come in many shapes and sizes. Many of these workflows operate under rigid business policies, which often affect how documents flow through a process or influence decisions along the way.
Business policies are often fluid. They change with time. Any solution dependent on changing business policies must be agile by design. As such, the rules that govern the policy of a given document workflow needs to be easily maintained without affecting the solution deployed in a running production environment. The BizTalk Business Rules Engine provides just a mechanism.
The diagram below depicts a workflow system that leverages the rules engine to enforce and manage fluid business policies.
