IBM's Ilog business rules management systems division has updated its portfolio of products designed to make it easier for business users to control processes.
A new feature in Ilog offers integration with Microsoft Word and Excel to make rule authoring more intuitive.
"The ability to make rapid and informed operational, tactical and strategic decisions is at the core of any successful enterprise," said Craig Hayman, IBM WebSphere vice president.
"The new Ilog products give key professionals in a range of industries the tools they need to accomplish this, while working smarter, understanding more and communicating better."
IBM acquired Ilog in July 2008 to add rule capabilities to its WebSphere business process management software. Customers also tend to use Ilog to build smarter interfaces, the company said.
The company also unveiled new test and simulation capabilities designed to assess the impact of rules authored and tested by business users, and to determine whether they are properly designed.
