After enabling the key decision strategy management services, configure the data sources for storing your customer and analytical data.
The Decision Data Store which connects Pega Platform to a backing database, such as Cassandra, is the primary data storage solution for managing large amounts of data in decision management. You can also use various other types of data sets, depending on your business use case. For example, you can connect to Kafka for real-time data streaming, or create a Monte Carlo data set to simulate large amounts of customer data.
- Managing decision management nodes
Manage the decision management nodes in your application by running certain actions for them, for example, repair or clean-up.
- Managing Cassandra as a store for decisioning data
When you operate your application in an on-premises or client-managed cloud environment, you need to install and operate an external Cassandra cluster, and connect it to Pega Platform as the underlying storage system for the Decision Data Store.
- Configuring data sources
Build the scaffolding for your decision strategies by defining the means to write and read customer, event, and proposition data.
