(Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) - Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE:FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, will spotlight emerging technologies and successful strategies for Enterprise Decision Management (EDM) at its 2006 North American InterACT conference. The conference will be held in San Francisco on April 30 - May 3.

Registration for InterACT 2006 is open now at www.fairisaac.com/interact.

At InterACT 2006, attendees will learn firsthand how today's most forward-thinking organizations are applying predictive analytics and advanced business rules management technologies to drive smarter decisions in customer management, marketing, fraud control and other areas. In addition to case studies from top financial services institutions, leading firms such as Coca-Cola, Dell Financial Services and Best Buy will discuss how they are automating and improving some of their most critical customer decisions.

"InterACT is the best place to learn about how EDM can help businesses achieve new levels of profitability and growth by ensuring that every decision is the best decision," said Eric Educate, vice president of sales and marketing at Fair Isaac. "We have been advancing the science of decisions for 50 years by setting new standards in risk management, fraud control, account management, business rules technology and more. At InterACT, we share that experience in the form of insights and innovations that our customers can apply to their critical decision processes today."

At InterACT, senior executives can learn how an EDM approach can accelerate revenue growth, reduce operational costs and improve management control across decision areas, product lines and geographical regions. Analysts can explore new methodologies in areas such as transaction modeling, visualization, genetic algorithms and strategy optimization. Business managers can discuss strategies and technologies to improve a wide array of customer decisions, with topics on enterprise fraud management, scoring for collections, automated underwriting and other areas. The conference also features a comprehensive look at EDM technology, from advances in business rules management to Fair Isaac's "decision services provider" model.

Fair Isaac is marking its 50th anniversary in 2006, and the company plans to celebrate the milestone with its clients at the San Francisco InterACT event. Bill Fair and Earl Isaac founded the company in San Francisco in 1956.

"It's only fitting that we bring those who are most responsible for our success - our customers - together in the city where Bill and Earl set up shop and put their vision in motion," said Educate.

InterACT San Francisco will feature more than 70 sessions, including case studies, research results, industry panels and strategy discussions. Participants will network with industry peers in discussion groups and at other conference events, and the InterACT product Expo will offer opportunities to learn about the latest analytic and decision management innovations throughout the conference.
