Live from InterAct - preshow tutorials

-- Posted by Carole-Ann

We flew into NY on Monday.  After what seemed a long day of internal meetings and presentation rehearsals, we started the show in the afternoon with our tutorial.  I was part of the "Operationalizing Analytics" track.

Scott Horwitz talked about the how Insurance companies can benefit from Business Rules, Decision Simulation, Predictive Analytics and Decision Optimization.  If you have been reading this blog, these should not be new concepts to say the least.  It was good though to engage the crowd on their current practices.

I was responsible for the Decision Simulator part and demo.  It was refreshing to see heads nodding when I talked about existing customers' experiences.

Horia finally showed a demo on Decision Optimization.  Customers had lots of questions on regulatory compliance.  I anticipate that we will get more and more compliance questions over time, especially as the Obama Administration defines new rules for the Insurance business.

Before the Welcome reception, managment briefed the whole staff about the name change.  We are now FICO, rather than Fair Isaac.  The official marketing count of attendees for the show is over 500.  Not so bad given the economy.

Now, let's get ready for tomorrow's big day.  I have 2 presentations.  I must say that I am pretty excited about my NFL presentation.  A French woman discussing football in New York.  It has to be a first!  If you happen to be in town, don't miss it.
