New Releases


Release coming out early August 2017


FICO Xpress Optimization - New Product Naming

We're announcing the formal roll-out of new Optimization product naming.  Going forward, FICO will go to market with one name and everything else will become a component of this single brand. The four components are Xpress Insight, Xpress Solver, Xpress Executor and Xpress Workbench. In addition, all software solutions developed using FICO Xpress Optimization technology have been grouped together under the name FICO Xpress Solutions.


Xpress Insight v4.8                                      (formerly FICO Optimization Modeler)

Brings new capabilities to optimization solution developers and users.  This update includes: a new table engine to provide Excel-like usability of tables as well as the faster rendering of sparsely populated tables; complementing Tableau for FICO, Insight provides VDL constructs for creating charts as part of custom views.


Xpress Workbench v2.0                               (formerly FICO Optimization Designer)

Is an IDE for developing optimization models, services, and Insight apps.  As Optimization Designer, it was originally launched in January 2017 as a cloud-only solution. With v2.0 this component is now available for on-premises customers, as a Windows install, as well.

FICO Decision Optimizer v7.1

Launched earlier this year, Decision Optimizer 7.0 (DO) was a significant update and improvement in FICO's decision simulation and optimization offering.  The 7.1 update provides 1) Data-informed strategy design in Trees; 2) Enhanced Tree Aware Optimization (TAO); 3) Performance improvements: scenario run times are 20% to 40% faster than those seen in DO 7.0.
