MINNEAPOLIS, March 25, 2010 – As financial services institutions rethink how they will operate in the “reset” economy, sponsorships for FICO World 2010, the 33rd annual edition of the leading international conference on Decision Management, have sold out completely. FICO (NYSE: FICO), a leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, has developed a conference program and a roster of speakers from more than 60 companies to help banks and insurance companies understand how to compete effectively as they seek to return to profitability.
“Right now, industry leaders are looking for ways to create and exploit competitive advantages for themselves so they can emerge from the financial crisis on top,” said David Feder, vice president of marketing at FICO. “With speakers from more than 60 companies – a record – FICO World will give participants actionable ideas for accomplishing their goals. It’s no surprise that our sponsors want to be part of that discussion.”
Among the sponsors of FICO World 2010 are Infosys (at the premier level); First American CoreLogic (platinum); CPqD (gold); and Equifax, IBM and Early Warning Services (silver). Other sponsors include TSYS, Automated Collection Control, Adeptra, Bank Info Security, Memento and First Data.
Unlike conferences that just focus on research results or product pitches, FICO World gives participants insight into how businesses are using the latest innovations in predictive analytics to manage risk, fight fraud and power up profits.
Setting the tone of the conference will be keynote speaker and Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter, who is generally recognized as the father of the modern strategy field and the world’s most influential thinker on management and competitiveness. Professor Porter’s ideas are the foundation for courses on strategy and competitiveness, and his work is taught at virtually every business school in the world.
FICO World will take place at the InterContinental Miami from April 13-16, 2010. Prospective attendees can find complete information and register online at www.fico.com/ficoworld.
