Fair Isaac Blaze Advisor 6.1 Integrates Rete III Technology

Minneapolis, MN. -- January 23, 2006 -- Fair Isaac Corporation today released Blaze Advisor 6.1, an enhanced version of the company’s industry-leading rules management system. Blaze Advisor 6.1 demonstrates Fair Isaac’s continued investment in delivering the most comprehensive platform for business rules application development and Enterprise Decision Management (EDM).

Available immediately, Blaze Advisor 6.1 integrates Rete III rules execution technology gained when Fair Isaac acquired assets of RulesPower, Inc. in 2005. Rete III is designed for data- and rules-intensive organizations where optimal performance is critical. Combined with Blaze Advisor’s existing performance optimization capabilities, powerful rules repository, developer tools, and templates for business-user rules management, the integrated system helps organizations process and execute complex, high-volume business rules faster and more efficiently than other rules management systems.

With a centralized enterprise repository for business rules, powerful query and update tools, multi-platform and multi-lingual support, and documented best practices, Blaze Advisor 6.1 gives organizations a clear process for quickly replicating their decision strategies across business systems to improve business operations. The new features also will enhance the performance of other Fair Isaac solutions in which Blaze Advisor is embedded, including Falcon™ Fraud Manager, Falcon™ ID solution, and Capstone® Decision Accelerator.

Blaze Advisor 6.1 is part of Fair Isaac’s software and solutions for enterprise decision management, which combines data analytics, modeling and policy-level control to let companies define and manage their automated business systems for improved efficiency and greater profitability.
