Way to go folks! Atheora, Inc. is proud to be FICO’s partner in developing DMP and delivering this cutting edge technology to the customers.

Building new FICO Decision Management Platform

We have been invited by FICO to help them to architect and develop their new ambitious project: a cloud-based platform for rapid implementation of decision management-related solutions. Decision management tools and applications is FICO’s main business, but this new product is interesting because first and foremost it is a general-purpose PaaS (“Platform as a Service”) ecosystem, using which clients should be able to stand up and connect services into complete business applications in a matter of minutes.

It will combine component-based architecture, lifecycle management, security, rapid UI development tools, data management and reporting into one powerful beast that should give FICO clients huge boost in agility, not to mention lowering their IT development and maintenance costs.

We are involved in work on the very core of the platform, writing interface specifications and building the main controller of the system, called DMP Manager. This is a very challenging and very exciting project for us!

Atheora Is Helping PayPal

We’ve been commissioned by PayPal to review their current risk and compliance rules implementation running on IBM’s ODM (former ILog JRules) platform and provide recommendations on BRMS product that would be able to keep up with the company’s ever-growing needs for flexible and efficient decision management.

Blaze Advisor is our instrument of choice for large business rules implementations, but does it have all it takes to play such crucial role in one of the largest payment companies in the world? We shall see.
