Business Rules Engines are systems created to deliver relevant business information to applications and business processes. Given the critical position of a rule engine, efficient rule search is essential. However, since the advent of Big Data, efficient rule search has become increasingly difficult -- more data leads to more rules.

In this thesis we prototype a rule engine in the Big Data framework Apache Spark, opening up the world of business rules for Big Data applications.

Furthermore, a performance study is conducted, benchmarking the performance and scalability of the prototype against the Amadeus Business Rules engine, ABR.
