FICO Blaze Advisor Review

Easy to set up, the IDE works well, and the community is helpful

What is our primary use case?

I am a business analyst and I use this product to assist in decision making. We work primarily in the banking sector.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the IDE.

What needs improvement?

More online support such as a knowledge base should be available. When you compare it to Java and other applications, there is a great deal of support available for those. With FICO, however, there is no particular support that we can easily search with respect to our queries.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Blaze Advisor for nearly four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Blaze Advisor is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The FICO community is helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to working with Blaze Advisor, we were manually writing the decision management rules in Java.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy and we haven't had any issues with it. Once we install it, we can begin working on it. It takes about an hour to deploy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We recently evaluated PegaRULES to see what capabilities it may have that are not available in FICO. For the most part, we did not find any difference. Since completing the comparison, we have decided to stay with Blaze Advisor.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Easy To Set Up, The IDE Works Well. Product’s Java specific APIs are helpful for user specific customization.

FICO provided manual is great help to understand all features.

RMA is gold feature of product.
