JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Sapiens DECISION and The Decision Model    to be offered in UGA MBA & Undergraduate MIS classes

Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a global provider of innovative software solutions for the financial services industry, announced today it has formed an alliance with the University of Georgia (UGA) Management Information Systems (MIS) Department. With the goal of developing better educational options for MIS professionals, UGA will be offering classes to provide education for advanced process modeling using Sapiens DECISION and The Decision Model.

     (Logo: )

The primary catalyst for the UGA-MIS/Sapiens alliance is UGA's strong belief in the growing need for professionals trained in business process and decision/rules management. Information systems (IS) academic programs have historically been slow to respond to the rapid change taking place and impacting many industries.

As the next generation of information systems (IS) professionals receive their education and prepare to enter the workforce, UGA is continually looking for innovative approaches for its MBA and undergraduate programs to help students achieve their maximum potential.

Sapiens DECISION is a modern business decision management solution (BDMS) used by large organizations to build, maintain, and leverage a centralized repository of reusable business logic. The software solution fully implements the principles of The Decision Model - a new way of looking at the business logic to ensure consistent execution and governance across all applications, and any rules engine or business process management system.

Tomer Srulevich, EVP Sales and Operation for Sapiens DECISION, noted, "We see this alliance as an outstanding opportunity for everyone involved. The next generation of IS professionals have the opportunity to be exposed to new and innovative educational opportunities via the University's MIS department curriculum. The University benefits by being able to offer a new kind of educational experience, and Sapiens gets the opportunity to expose the next generation to our technologies and products."

Srulevich added, "Through the collaborative efforts of UGA and Sapiens, the MIS department has already successfully integrated decision/business rules management into a number of courses. UGA-MIS faculty are now teaching The Decision Model and using the Sapiens DECISION software in one MBA class and three undergraduate MIS classes, representing approximately 275 students a year -- better preparing them to be successful in the continually maturing and changing IS/IT field."
