IBM® Operational Decision Manager (ODM) is an implementation of a Business Rule Management System (BRMS). It enables you to create, manage, test, and govern business rules and events. You can store these in a central repository where multiple individuals and software products can access them.

IBM ODM Version 8.0 provides support for IBM® IMS™ COBOL programs. This IBM Redpaper™ publication walks you through a step-by-step approach for using IBM ODM for rules management from an IMS COBOL MPP, BMP, or DL/IBATCH program.
