MINNEAPOLIS – July 13, 2011 – FICO (NYSE: FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that it has opened registration for FICO World 2011, the leading international conference on analytic strategies. This year’s event, with the theme, “Game Changers: New Strategies for Profitable Growth,” will be held November 1-4 in New York City and feature sessions and networking events to help executives from financial services and other industries develop ways to boost profitability in a challenging operating environment.

The conference agenda, which will include presentations from more than 60 businesses, features a keynote speech by renowned analyst Meredith Whitney, a leading advisor to the banking industry. Whitney and FICO CEO Mark Greene will discuss specific challenges facing financial services companies today, and the importance of game-changing innovation in driving growth.

“We live and work in a radically changed business landscape, one where conventional wisdom has been tossed out the window, customers have heightened expectations and economic conditions are in constant flux,” said Dr. Greene. “The most successful companies are not merely adjusting. They’re also anticipating how consumers will behave in the future, then making decisions based upon that knowledge. FICO World will give participants actionable ideas for doing just that.”

Attendees at FICO World 2011 will hear first-hand from industry leaders, peers and analytics experts about innovative approaches to uncover new revenue sources, balance risk and opportunity, adapt to new consumer behaviors and stay ahead of fraud schemes. Unlike conferences that focus just on research results or product pitches, FICO World offers real insights into how businesses are using the latest in predictive analytics to manage risk, fight fraud and power up profits. Companies presenting will include ASBA Retail Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Hyundai, Raiffeisen Bank International AG, Santander Bank of Chile, Scotiabank and TowerGroup.

FICO World 2011, the company’s 34th corporate conference, will take place at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in New York City from November 1-4, 2011. Sponsors include First American Core Logic, CPqD, Bull, Equifax, Adeptra and TSYS. Prospective attendees can find complete information and register online at
