Fair Isaac Corporation, the leading provider of analytics and decision technology, today announced the immediate availability of its Enterprise Decision Manager software solution. Enterprise Decision Manager gives organizations in multiple industries unprecedented control of their automated decisions and significantly reduces the time and costs required to incorporate important changes in business priorities into their decision systems.

Enterprise Decision Manager is the first software solution that combines industry-leading predictive analytics, business rules and business user control into a complete platform for managing decisions across an enterprise.  It integrates proven Fair Isaac decision management tools - such as Fair Isaac Blaze Advisor for rules management, Model Builder for model development and Decision Optimizer for improved decisions - that have been successfully used by more than 250 organizations.  Combined and extended, these tools provide any business that makes large numbers of dynamic, high-impact operational decisions with more complete capabilities for accelerating the development and deployment of decision management applications.


Enterprise Decision Manager leverages a company's existing technology investments in data warehousing and business application systems to enable consistently smarter decisions fueled by Fair Isaac analytics.  The software is available on a number of platforms ranging from Windows laptops to IBM Mainframes, while also available on all the leading J2EE application servers as well as Linux and .Net environments.  Because the software is database independent, businesses also can leverage their Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server-based data stores.

In addition, Enterprise Decision Manager creates automated decisions that can be accessed by third-party business applications and by Fair Isaac Strategy Machine solutions.  For example, Enterprise Decision Manager can be used in conjunction with Fair Isaac's leading customer and account management solution TRIAD adaptive control system to create custom automated decisions and improve the precision of existing decision areas through more advanced calculation of characteristics and scores.

Enterprise Decision Manager makes many important decision functions easier, including the ability to view and manage complete decision processes from a single graphical interface. Users can flexibly combine rules, models, scores, strategy trees and other critical elements into decisioning applications.  The software includes a wizard for importing predictive analytics from model development. There's no need for programmers to code the models, because at runtime the software automatically generates the code required to execute the model process in target operational environments, whether real time or offline.  In addition to importing the model algorithm, characteristics, weights and reason codes, it incorporates complete variable generation as well. After deployment, users can change decision components or sequence at any time, with changes immediately available to all business applications. The net effect is the ability to deploy predictive models four to 10 times faster than previously possible.    

Businesses can take advantage of customized Fair Isaac services associated with Enterprise Decision Manager, which are designed to ensure customers receive optimal performance and value from their decision management technology investments. Fair Isaac offers a comprehensive six-step decision automation process that helps to identify a company's needs and design, develop, deploy and refine their automated decision systems.  This process can apply to businesses in any industry, including financial services, insurance, healthcare, government and telecommunications.
