FICO was recently cited as a leader in decisioning platforms by Forrester Research, one of the most respected industry analysts covering IT and analytics.

The report, which you can download in its entirety, is entitled “The Forrester New Wave™: Digital Decisioning Platforms, Q4 2018,” and it evaluated the top 11 offerings in the market. Forrester ranked each participant across ten categories: developer experience, decision management features, analytics features, process features, functional integration, business results correlation, administration and management, vision, road map, and market approach. Based on the results, Forrester assessed FICO as a leader.

It’s worth noting that – beyond being recognized as a leader – FICO received a “Differentiated” rating (the highest possible mark) in six of those criteria: developer experience, decision management features, analytics features, business results correlation, vision, and market approach.

Forrester’s report also includes the following analysis:

  • “FICO leads with world-class decision management and analytics. FICO’s Blaze Advisor is world-class at enabling both technical developers and business analysts to author business rules. With the addition of advanced analytics modeling, enterprises can use FICO to make sophisticated, consequential decisions.”
  • “FICO is best for companies automating consequential business decisions. Because FICO supports both business-rules authoring and advanced analytics modeling, enterprises can use FICO to make sophisticated decisions. FICO also offers business solutions that encapsulate decision expertise for vertical and horizontal applications.”
  • “FICO Customer Reference Summary – FICO’s two customer references noted the flexibility of FICO decision authoring tools and implementation support.”

FICO believes Forrester’s recognition of FICO as a leader is a resounding validation of the FICO Decision Management Suite vision, development, and direction. It affirms the technological and business strategy it has been advocating for our customers for many years…long before many of its competitors were even around.
