We've just announced a call for entries in the second FICO Decision Management Awards. The awards honor FICO clients that have achieved outstanding results from their use of analytics and decision management technology to grow their businesses, manage risk and reduce costs.
Nominations are due August 1, 2012, and winners will be announced October 1. If you'd like to enter a nomination or get more information, visit www.fico.com/dmawards.
This year, awards will be presented in four categories: credit risk management, fraud control, insurance claims management and analytic innovation. Winners will receive recognition at FICO’s annual conference, FICO™ World, which will be held in Miami from April 30-May 3, 2013. Winning implementations will be featured in conference activities, and two representatives of the winning company will receive complimentary conference passes. In addition, a $1,000 contribution will be made to the charitable organization of each winner’s choice.
An independent panel of judges will evaluate nominations based upon measureable improvement in key metrics; demonstrated use of best practices; project scale, depth and breadth; and innovative uses of technology. This year’s judges include Douglas Blakey, editor of Retail Banker International; Karen Pauli, a research director at CEB TowerGroup; James Taylor, CEO of Decision Management Solutions; and Dan Vesset, program vice president of IDC's Business Analytics research.
Winners of the first FICO Decision Management Awards were China’s Bank of Communications (credit risk management), Highmark (insurance claims management) and Lloyds Banking Group (fraud control).
