One of the most exciting innovations at FICO in recent years was the launch of the FICO® Analytic Cloud. We developed our cloud to democratize access to analytics, and we built our cloud on OpenStack — an open-source, infrastructure-as-a-service platform. Our director of engineering and cloud services, Nicholas Gerasimatos, recently talked about our experience with OpenStack at the OpenStack Summit 2015 in Vancouver. During an interview with SiliconANGLE, Nicholas discussed the strategic benefits of building on OpenStack as well as the challenges of developing on an open source platform. As you'll see, we’re big believers in open source for present and future of development. We couldn't imagine taking on a project like the FICO Analytic Cloud with a proprietary platform. We hope you enjoy the interview, and we'd love to hear your take on OpenStack.
