Many of the business rules that drive core systems of most enterprises are only documented in their source code. Extracting this logic is vital to system support and modernization.  AveriSource’s powerful automated business rule extraction technology dramatically accelerates rule mining on large applications. And extracted rules are contained in the AveriSource iSAT™, a well-organized, scalable, interactive repository of source code documentation and technical analysis tools.

AveriSource iSAT™ Business Rules

  • Categorized – Each business rule is assigned to one of thirteen categories to provide business context and to allow segmentation of application modernization activities.
  • Weighted – Shows which rules are likely to have the greatest business impact.
  • Translated – Translated candidate rules make it easier for analysts to understand the business process without interpreting source code.
  • Modernization Focused – Developed to dramatically accelerate the modernization use cases.
