Meet The 2022 FICO Decisions Awards Winners!

11 companies recognized for success through innovation in AI, machine learning, decision management

2022 FICO Decisions Award Winners - Decisions That Matter

I am thrilled to announce the winners of the 2022 FICO® Decisions Awards

This year we have 11 winners across 8 award categories representing companies from every corner of the globe.

Many entries this year demonstrated innovative use of technology and creative thinking to respond to the challenges of the pandemic. Everything from managing new fraud patterns and customers who need financial assistance to remote working, furloughed staff and incorporating new sanitary measures.

We continue to see more customers moving to cloud-based decisioning on the FICO Platform, as they seek the computational power it can deliver, the flexibility, scalability, global delivery and cost benefits. We also see a trend towards optimization and decision automation, not only to solve complex problems, but specifically to deliver social good in the form of carbon emissions reductions. Boosting financial inclusion also featured strongly this year, with organizations delivering life-changing access to credit for millions of people. The class of 2022 show that analytic technologies can have a profound impact and deliver on the decisions that really matter to people.

In what is our tenth year of running the awards, I would like to congratulate the winners on their achievements.
