Database Management

Suggest edit Updated on March 11, 2021

After enabling the key DSM services, define the sources of data to use in your decision strategies.

Create database tables, HBase data set, and Decision Data Store data sets as data sources in data flows and strategies.

  • Database tables

    Create database table data instances to map classes or class groups to database tables or views. You can use the Database Table form to revise existing class-to-table relationships.

  • Creating an HBase data set record

    You must configure each instance of the HBase data set rule before it can read data from and save it to an external HBase storage.

  • Creating a Decision Data Store data set

    You can store decision management-related records in a Cassandra database-based Decision Data Store data set that is provided in Pega Platform. Horizontally scalable and supported by decision data nodes, decision data stores take data from different sources and make it available for real-time and batch processing. To use Cassandra to its full potential, use Decision Data Store data sets to manage large and active data sets that are a source of data for Visual Business Director reporting, delayed adaptive learning, and so on.
