Your business decision simulation “crystal ball”

In today’s hyper-competitive environment with high consumer expectations, your organization can’t afford to launch new solutions or make changes to existing solutions without having the right data and the ability to test before launch. You need deep analytic insights and powerful business simulations combined with decision optimization to manage your business and engage your customers.

Develop business outcome simulation scenarios by comparing decision assets before deploying.

FICO® Business Outcome Simulator enables forward-thinking organizations to grow faster and become more competitive with the ability to investigate the impact of changes within complex analytical decisioning solutions before deploying decisioning assets into production.  

Businesses can easily stress-test assets (such as predictive or prescriptive models, a rule-based decision flow, or a complete decision strategy) against changing market conditions or changes in the models themselves. Users then identify key parameters and stress-test data input via business outcome simulation, allowing them to see multiple scenarios and compare them against each other to find the right real-world application.  

Companies can quickly shift from decision making based on “what was” and “what is” to exploring “what ifs” with the ability to consider future-state, real-world scenarios — leading to game-changing innovations. 

Why FICO? With FICO, complex and comprehensive scenario comparison and analysis can be done “in place” without rewriting business logic or handing projects over to a team of data scientists. FICO® Platform makes the process seamless and code-free.

One platform. Comprehensive features. Winning strategies.

Seamless business simulation outcomes and capabilities delivered on FICO Platform.


Automated platform asset discovery

Easily identify platform decision and analytic assets available for simulation.


Business object model ingestion

Empower business analysts to rapidly choose the relevant data elements and KPIs for analysis, directly from within the assets selected for simulation.


Historical and backtest data specification

If historical data is available, identify the period of interest for analysis and simulation.


Data generation and augmentation

When additional data is required for what-if analyses, BOS provides synthetic data capabilities.


Data transformation and human expert data overrides

For effective simulation, data values will often require shifts and transformations, available within the GUI of the BOS application. Human expert overrides are possible at all levels.


Asset what-if modifications for analysis

Alternative versions of assets can be simulated alongside BAU strategies.


Asset sandboxing and simulation execution

Storage and compute provisioning is automatic and sized based on simulation requirements.


Visualization and reporting

Both built-in visualizations are available as well as means to export results for BYO exploration.
