Santa Clara, CA, August 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Agilis Software today announced that Fair Isaac Corporation has selected Agilis's Orion Network Licensing Platform to provide usage-based license management and tracking for their Global FICO® Score product, and initial deployments have been successfully completed in Japan and Mexico.
Banks, credit card companies, lending institutions and international credit bureaus in some 20 countries outside North America use Global FICO® Score to evaluate credit worthiness and risk. Fair Isaac is using Orion to securely monitor actual usage of several functions in Global FICO® Score, even on systems that have no Internet connection. Customers then use Orion's secure offline activation mechanism to upload the usage data every month from any web browser. The Orion server's auditing and reporting mechanisms are used by Fair Isaac to generate usage reports by customer.
Steve Delman, Software Development Senior Manager for Fair Isaac, said: "Orion met several challenges we faced with this licensing scenario: tracking several usage counters, high throughput, security for offline data logging with protection against state rollback, system clock tampering and automatic node locking, and support for Java, C/C++ and C#".
“We have a great working relationship with Agilis”, added Brian Peterson, Software Development Lead for Fair Isaac. “We go to Agilis with a problem and issues, and Agilis comes back almost instantly with answers and a solution”.
Dominic Haigh, VP of Agilis, commented: "Fair Isaac’s offline usage-based license management is one of the most sophisticated implementations Agilis has seen to date. Several ideas for product enhancements came out of our joint implementation work, and have been built into the Orion Platform as standard features."
Fair Isaac intends using Orion for all future Global FICO® Score deployments.
A case study of Fair Isaac's implementation of usage-based license management with Orion is available from Agilis by sending an email to email@example.com or visiting www.agilis-sw.com/contact.php?sub='FIC-case-study-0808'.
