innovatively utilizing risk technology to solve its most difficult problems to
advance their organizations,” said Randy Heffernan, vice president at
Palisade. “With the release of Palisade DecisionTools Suite 6.0 earlier this
year, the flexibility and capability of the technology is greater than ever,
