Meet The 2023 FICO Decisions Awards Winners!

15 companies recognized for successful innovation in AI, machine learning and decision management

2023 FICO Decisions Award Winners - Decisions That Matter

It's with great enthusiasm that I reveal the victors of the 2023 FICO® Decisions Awards!

The entries this year reveal great advances in technology and approach as organizations become more sophisticated in the way they solve their most pressing challenges. In 2023, we have 15 winners across 10 award categories representing companies from every corner of the globe.

As customers pursue greater computational power, flexibility, scalability, cost-effectiveness, and worldwide accessibility, we are observing a growing trend of them adopting cloud-based decisioning on the FICO Platform

In fact, this year the winning projects used FICO Platform to do everything from onboarding a customer and digitally delivering a credit card in under 5 minutes to processing 5 billion transactions with a score each day to better understand customer behaviour. We received entries that demonstrated the power of optimization to balance the European energy grid under pressure from the war in Ukraine, to others that show how life-changing and transformational financial inclusion programs can be for ordinary people. 

Many of the entries are still dealing with the profound changes brought about by the pandemic, but there was also a feeling of transition and opportunity as companies rethink the way they have been doing things. There was plenty of creativity and moxy in the approaches, business models and technologies deployed by the class of 2023.

In what is our eleventh year of running the awards, I think the winners have really demostrated the transformative power of analytic technologies and I would like to congratulate them on their achievements.
