Radial circle

(Lisbon, Portugal) - Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE:FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, kicked off its 2007 European InterACT customer conference today in Lisbon, Portugal. More than 300 business leaders from over 40 countries are attending the three-day forum, demonstrating the fast-growing demand worldwide for innovative technologies and strategies that drive smarter decisions.

Fair Isaac's InterACT conference is the world's leading forum on business analytics, emerging decision management technologies and their applications. Executives attend InterACT to learn about the latest strategies for success in critical decision areas including risk management, fraud protection, customer acquisition and retention, collections and recovery, and underwriting. They also experience the newest innovations in predictive analytics and decision automation technology. InterACT Lisbon is sold out, and attendees represent a range of industries including financial services, retail, telecommunications, insurance and technology providers.

"Your presence here - and your use of Fair Isaac technology to make your very best customer decisions - indicates that you represent some of the world's most visionary organizations," said Dr. Mark Greene, Fair Isaac CEO, in his conference-opening keynote address. "As a partner who is committed to your success, we will continue to deliver advances in analytics and decision automation that will make your business faster, safer and more competitive."

Greene, overseeing his first InterACT conference following his recent appointment as CEO of Fair Isaac, also reinforced Fair Isaac's commitment to continued innovation, and to creating the standard for Enterprise Decision Management (EDM), the emerging discipline of automating and improving decisions. "This company was built on innovation, starting with the introduction of credit scoring back in the 1960s, and today we are uniquely qualified to help businesses around the world bring the most advanced technology to their most important decision areas," Greene said.

Today's general session also featured a keynote presentation by Lior Arussy, CEO of Strativity Group, Inc., and a pioneer in the field of Customer Experience Management. Arussy, who works with Global 2000 organizations and emerging businesses around the world to create lasting and profitable relationships with customers and employees, challenged attendees to change the way they approach their customers.

Over the next three days, InterACT participants can choose from more than 50 sessions, including case studies, research results, industry panels and strategy discussions on new EDM technologies and applications. Discussion groups, private consultations and other conference events provide attendees with opportunities to connect with industry peers and Fair Isaac experts, and the InterACT Product Expo reveals Fair Isaac's latest analytic and decision management innovations.

Since 1976, more than 10,000 attendees have met at Fair Isaac conferences to explore the latest advances in predictive analytics and decision technology.
