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!
