DI Studio to build and manage business rules

Posting this for an HLS customer in Finance Dept:  As a SAS consultant I am tasked with  SAS strategy and implementation recommendation  thus exploring SAS DI Studio and something to build and manage business rules.  I am familiar with 1st version of SAS DI studio and I am interested in becoming familiar with version = 4.8 and 4.9, especially the version control feature and anything to manage business rules.  Has anyone used these DI 4.8,4.9 for version control and to manage business rules.

Re: DI Studio to build and manage business rules

If I were you, my first stop would be the SAS account manager and pre-sales group for your company. Once they understand what you'd like to do, they should be able to give you a structured introduction to the features in DI Studio that would be appropriate, along with customer references.

 

Once you've seen how the SAS tools could meet your business requirements, that would be a good time to reach out to the communities, asking about the experiences people have had with the tools. If you start with the communities, you're likely to find all sorts of people who are happy or unhappy with functionality that doesn't apply to your organization.

Re: DI Studio to build and manage business rules

Just to add a few notes.
Version control is not a part of DI Studio. But there is an offering for integrating with 3rd party tools. Check out the details in the doc.
Secondly, I'm a bit worried when you talk about business rules. Can you be more specific?
DI Studio is good to implement hard rules (data types, naming etc). Soft rules can be implemented as well, but they are managed from a technical perspective. You perhaps need a another tool and/or process where you define the rule, who's responsible and links to where it's implemented.
