Allegiance Advisory Group (AAG) is a Financial Advisory and Technology Consulting firm known for their deep industry experience and a results-driven platform. AAG defines how to affect change by integrating strategy, process, technology, and operations.
We spoke to Allegiance Advisory Group about their company and their exciting customer session titled “Olympic Speed: Using Real-Time, Smart Feedback to Improve Performance of Elite and Everyday Athletes.”
IBM: I had a great discussion with Brian Stucky, Managing Director. Brian, what would you like your readers to know about AAG?
Brian: We are a Financial Advisory and Technology Consulting firm located in northern Virginia with expertise in Business Strategy, Process Management, and Technology Integration. AAG has 6 primary focus areas of expertise – Centers of Excellence – including the one I direct: Business Decision Management (BDM). Clients moving towards a BDM approach focus on their operational decisions, use business rules to manage those decisions and ultimately enable those decisions as services tied to their core business processes. We help them realize that goal.
IBM: Tell us about Olympic speed and your session at Impact.
Brian: This is truly a unique and revolutionary application of business rules and decision management. For years we’ve focused these approaches on traditional financial service systems like automated underwriting and claims processing. With Athletes’ Performance we found a desire to achieve some of the same traditional goals – agility, business control, dynamic reaction – but in a very non-traditional domain. The Prescription Engine ™ took the proven athletic training methodology of Athletes’ Performance – one previously only available to world-class elite athletes via one-on-one training – and brought it to the “weekend warrior”. A Business Decision Management approach implemented via the JRules BRMS made this possible.
IBM: AAG offers Business Decision Management . What are some of the messages you'll be sharing to help customers thrive in today's economy?
Brian: The key “impact” for any BDM system is agility. By supporting a business-driven need for frequent change and rapid turnaround, the modern enterprise can react in real-time to any business, environmental, or regulatory event. The key drivers to creating a system like The Prescription Engine ™ are, in fact, the same for the majority of our clients.
IBM: Is this your first Impact experience?
Brian: This is indeed my first Impact experience and I am delighted to be participating. The breadth and depth of the presentations, forums and exhibitions is unlike anything I’ve seen under one roof.
IBM: How does the Impact 2010 help you reach new customers and maintain your expertise in today's marketplace?
Brian: I think Impact 2010 is a tremendous opportunity to bring potential consumers of these various technologies together with experts in their application, implementation and use. We can talk about what we do and how we do it to potential clients that we might not find otherwise. And we hope those companies will realize that the offerings from a company like AAG can truly help them achieve their goals.
IBM: We have an exciting lineup of speakers. Who are you looking to hear from at Impact?
Brian: In addition to the full slate off events related to my specific area of expertise, I’m really looking forward to attending sessions on Cloud Computing and Enterprise 2.0. I believe their evolution will significantly influence the way Business Decision Management is thought of and utilized in the future.
Thank you Brian for your time today. We are looking forward to meeting you next week at Impact!
