SAP Decision Service Management Overview:
- SAP Decision Service Management Training offers solutions to overcome some of the limitations on SAP’s ABAP-based rule engine, Business Rule Framework plus .
- It is designed as a separate add-on to an SAP NetWeaver system, extending the capabilities of BRFplus.
- The rationale of SAP Decision Service Management Training approach is that even if a system does not offer the BRFplus rule modeling tools, it may still be capable of executing the source code that BRFplus generates for its rules.
- The purpose of DSM is to let you model the rules and generate the source code for the rule objects in an up-to-date design time system, and then to deploy the generated code to your productive systems, which may be based on a lower release of SAP NetWeaver.
By implementing SAP Decision Service Management Training, you can overcome the following BRFplus limitations:
BRFplus was introduced with SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Enhancement Package 1, and we recommend using BRFplus with systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Enhancement Package 2. However, many productive systems at the customer site run on a lower release, and organizations may be reluctant to upgrade the very heart of their systems.
Especially bigger companies tend to split their business activities into segments that are handled by multiple productive systems, each dedicated to a particular business aspect for example, one system dedicated to procurement activities, another to the CRM system, one to the SRM system, and so on.
If all of these systems use business rules, a first approach could be to add another system, namely a dedicated BRFplus system that provides rules for all of the different business cases, segments, and business units covered by the various systems.
However, this type of landscape, with one central rule provider system, can easily run into performance problems due to the high number of requests from the productive systems.
When this happens, a system administrator would ask for a landscape with one central business rule modeling system acting as the single source of truth, surrounded by productive systems that should be able to execute business rules on their own, rather than requesting rule calculations from the rule provider system.
The scenario with a central rule provider system receiving requests from the productive systems can have another drawback: If a rule has not been set up properly either from a technical or a business point of view, or if there are technical problems with the rule provider system itself, then these problems multiply with the number of productive systems.
On the other hand, a distributed approach with autonomous productive systems can help to isolate the problem before it spreads over the entire system landscape.
Certain business cases ask for a different system behavior based on a planned time schedule. Examples for such business cases are decisions that have to react to legal changes that were announced in advance, trade promotion activities for a limited period of time, and so on.
Although it is possible to model such time dependencies within the capabilities of BRFplus rules, this approach always tends to hide the time-dependent differences in system behavior. Customers then ask for a more obvious way to react to date and time circumstances influencing the system behavior.
Modeling business rules with SAP Decision Service Management Training is based on the data structures that are available in the system in which the modeling is done. However, companies may decide to have a central SAP system that is used for master data management, but the data that is maintained in that system is not available in systems used for development, testing, or quality assurance.
Since business rules depend strongly on master data, this data dependency can lead to difficulties when it comes to testing new or modified rules before they are released for productive use.
You could try to avoid this problem by replicating the productive data in the test system. However, this approach is likely to lead to data inconsistencies sooner or later, with the consequence of unreliable and misleading test results.
Such unreliable results are even harder to detect because, based on the initial data replication, a test engineer would erroneously tend to think that the test environment has been well prepared.
Implementing SAP Decision Service Management Training is useful only if you are already using, or plan to use, SAP’s ABAP-based business rules management system, BRFplus.
For the DSM system landscape, the following minimum requirements apply:
For the design time system: SAP Decision Service Management Training 1.0 Enhancement
For managed systems: SAP NetWeaver 2004 SP13 or higher
