About the Open Decision Tool Demo

The Open Decision Tool Demo is still pre-beta. If you are really interested in seeing it now, please drop a note to info @ dminstitute.org.

The Open Decision Tool Demo provides a demonstration of some of the opportunities of decision management while exploring developing a web-based tool. This tool is under development and any test data that you enter may not be persistent. We suggest that you export anything you might want to keep to your local machine.

This page holds descriptions of changes to ODT-demo grouped as changes as they are pushed to heroku. The development releases are tagged with a release number dx.yz and the date of the release is captured. The date of the push to the public site is indictated as Live. You can check the release level of software by looking in the help (?) on the site header.
