FICO is an analytics software company that uses Big Data and modern technology to forecast consumer behavior and give businesses tools to manage risks and meet regulatory requirements. The company was founded in 1956 and since then has become one of the most ubiquitous tools to assess consumer credit risk in the United States. FICO Scores, which measure this risk are widely used in many different industries.

With the tools introduced by FICO that enable aggregating information from many different sources to assign each user a standardized score reflecting their credit risk, companies have a better understanding of each customers behavior and can offer terms that are more accurate.
