    We would like to inform you that we are deprecating the Business Rules service from IBM Cloud. However, we have a separate IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) on Cloud offering. See the bottom of this announcement for more information. Here’s what you need to know:
    • The End of Marketing date is May 15, 2018.
      As of May 15, 2018, the Business Rules service tile will be removed from the IBM Cloud Public catalog and you will not be able to provision new instances. However, existing instances will continue to be supported for a full year.
    • The End of Support date is May 15, 2019.
      • We will continue to support existing instances until the End of Support date
      • During that period, all existing instances will continue to be available on the services dashboard in the administrative console.
      • Any instance that is still provisioned as of the End of Support Date will be deleted on that date.
    The US South, United Kingdom, and Sydney regions are affected by this service update.

    If you are interested in Business Rules and Decision Management in a cloud environment, see the IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) on Cloud. It offers a fully managed cloud service with three pre-configured development, test, and production environments to get you started quickly. IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) on Cloud is fully compatible with rule projects, which were created for the Business Rules service on IBM Cloud, that we are deprecating.
