Fair Isaac Corporation, a provider of analytics and decision technology, announced at Siebel User Week 2003 that Fair Isaac Blaze Advisor has been successfully validated with Universal Application Network (UAN).

The validation of Fair Isaac’s Blaze Advisor with UAN allows users to deliver enhanced service by building on the combined strength of Siebel Systems’ applications and Fair Isaac’s business rules platform for automating decision making. Blaze Advisor rule services can now be invoked by Siebel Business Integration Applications for Insurance, receive data in a standards based format from systems integrated through UAN, and execute the rule service with all of the power and flexibility inherent in modern rules management technology. Decisions are returned to applications users in any channel in seconds.

With this validation, customers of Siebel Systems and Fair Isaac can now reap the benefits of this joint offering while reducing the cost and time to deploy the integrated solution. Among the many types of businesses that can benefit are insurance carriers, who depend heavily on both call centers and Web sites. Carriers can now ensure that they collect all the conditional data they need, make precise decisions using business rules and predictive analytics and increase the speed of their response to changing market conditions while providing service that is more consistent and leveraging their existing IT investments.

Blaze Advisor can be integrated with Siebel Insurance by invoking Blaze API calls through UAN using Siebel Business Integration Applications for Insurance.

Developed by Siebel Systems in collaboration with leading technology companies, UAN is a standards-based architecture for business integration. UAN includes packaged integration applications – Siebel Business Integration Applications – that run on industry-leading integration servers, eliminating the cost and complexity associated with traditional integration methods. With UAN, companies can leverage their existing IT investments, deploy best-in- class applications, and optimize their cross-application business processes, resulting in greater organizational agility and a lower total cost of ownership.

Siebel Systems forms alliances with proven technology leaders to deliver tangible business benefits throughout the enterprise. Using UAN and validated partner solutions, Siebel Systems’ customers can pursue a best-of-class software acquisition strategy. The Siebel Validation Program applies rigorous technical scrutiny to evaluate the integration of third-party solutions for UAN compliance. Integrations that meet the strict testing criteria are validated and documented by the Siebel Validation Program. Validation documentation is available on the Siebel Partner Directory at www.siebel.com/partners/dir/directory.shtm.
