Instead of implementing Business Rules directly into ETL processes they can also be stored centrally, in a repository. In this way, ETL processes can collect Business Rules that are linked to a SAS code from the repository.
This approach has many advantages. Most importantly, the Business Rules are stored and managed centrally, in one place. This prevents any misunderstandings that can occur when Business Rules are being implemented in various ways in various places. Managing the Business Rules can therefore be moved from the technical department to a more functional department within the company, where they should belong anyway.
Another advantage of EOM's approach to Business Rules is that it is now easier to report on Business Rules.
