We are helping the business to make better decisions at higher speed.

Jay Prag, First National Bank

Business Challenge story

Rules-based decision-making processes at FNB were not fast, agile or consistent enough to meet demands imposed by geographic expansion, increasing regulation and new consumer expectations.


FNB deployed IBM Operational Decision Manager on its existing IBM z Systems infrastructure, gaining a central point of control for the creation, dissemination and processing of business rules.


40-times better performance for rules processing, driving faster decisions. Rapid rules development provides agility to address emerging challenges. Lower latency enables support for online channels.
