Our Services

Easy to use

Empower the business while liberating IT for more pressing tasks. An intuitive interface and spreadsheet-style modeling tools let business staff manage sophisticated rules without having to code.


Get millisecond response times and scale across millions of transactions per day. The Design-Time-Inferencing™ (DeTI) algorithm built into Corticon scales the organization linearly as the number of rules increases.


The Corticon rule integrity feature and onboard diagnostics mean “no fear” automation. Test new rules to ensure accurate results and pinpoint conflicts before they become headaches.


Corticon® Platform

Corticon Business Rules Studio

Progress Corticon supports every part of the modeling process, from initial capture of business requirements, to testing the decision against organizational data. The result is complete, deployment-ready rules. Corticon Studio creates the deployment files needed by Corticon Business Rules Server to integrate and execute rules as a decision service. It also plugs into the Corticon Enterprise Data Connector to enable model-driven data integration. When combined, these products provide a complete solution for creating and managing decisions across the enterprise.
