FICO® Xpress Insight

Enables businesses to collaborate and rapidly deploy optimization models as powerful applications.
Xpress Insight enables businesses to work in a collaborative environment with interactive visualizations tailored to business needs. It allows you, the business user, to work with analytic models in easy-to-understand terms and account for trade-offs and sensitivities implicit to the business problem. You can share results with your peers and collaborate to make optimized decisions by running a “what-if” scenario analysis and comparing the impact of different strategies.
Data scientists and operations researchers can quickly deploy their analytic and optimization models, whether they are written in Python or Xpress Mosel, into Xpress Insight applications. UI development of interactive analytic applications is easily done via drag-and-drop in View Designer or our mark-up language VDL (View Definition Language). Xpress Insight provides out-of-the-box scenario management, file management, data management, and user and role management — taking away the burden to implement them. It seamlessly integrates with Tableau.

Why FICO? Leverage decades of FICO innovation in optimization combined with real-world expertise to implement ground-breaking collaboration opportunities within an environment rich with interactive visualizations and easy-to-understand terms to balance trade-offs and make truly optimized business decisions.
