Presenters: Lamar Shahbazian, Senior Director, Product Management, Analytic Tool, FICO and Michelle Brodale, Director of Software Engineering, FICO

In this webinar, we will dig into an HR Employee Attrition and Performance sample data set to explain the advantages of developing a decision management solution with a web service endpoint and informing that solution through the use of analytics software. Join us to discover how you can use analytics to:

> Gain insight to take action
> Utilize decision assets such as rules and decision trees to prioritize action
> Implement and continually update assets to optimize the solution

FICO leveraged analytics to create a credit score over 60 years ago, and continues to make strides in advanced analytics.

FICO's DM Suite operates in the background of countless industries, from flight and crew scheduling for Southwest to improving energy yield for WindFarmDesigns to operationalizing analytics through the entire Hewlett Packard Enterprise. How does this technology work to dictate so many important decisions in such diverse industries?
