Radial circle

MINNEAPOLIS — September 1, 2009 — In response to customer demand, FICO (NYSE:FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, announced today that it has secured additional space and re-opened registration for its previously sold-out Decision Management Tools User Group Forum in Chicago, September 16-18. The conference, which has attracted registrants from six countries, will be supported by five major sponsors, two of whom – ValueMomentum and StoneRiver – signed on just last week.

“Demand is intense for information and best practices about business rules, analytic modeling and optimization,” said David Lightfoot, vice president at FICO. “Business managers and technical users alike are actively seeking ways to advance their understanding of Decision Management in order to gain a competitive advantage in the year ahead. Attending the FICO Decision Management Tools User Group Forum is the best way to get everything in one place.”

The three-day forum is exclusively for users of the FICO Blaze Advisor® system, FICO Xpress Optimization Suite and FICO Model Builder.
