Rules Engine: Agile technical framework defines the rules engine as the hub for all interfaces and transactional data. This becomes the central repository of all business rules such as a hybrid or aggregate plan for accumulator, carry over, or any plan specific business rules, etc.
Reference Architecture: An established reference architecture allows reusability of existing interfaces and extracts, establishing control and balance in every step. Performance, scalability, maintenance and operability are important criteria in the reference architecture.
Partner Engagement: The success of PBM implementation is dependent on effective partner engagement. Agile framework defines comprehensive and wise engagement at each phase to ensure all business objectives, requirements, joint testing and implementation/go live plans are met.
