Decision Lens Tapped by Oakland A’s for Player Selection

December 15, 2010

Decision Lens, a leading provider of desktop and Web-based collaborative decision making software, has been chosen by Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics (Oakland A’s) for player selection.

Based in Oakland, CA, The Oakland A’s are a Major League Baseball team and a member of the Western Division of the American League. The team moved to Oakland in 1968, winning three World Championships in a row from 1972 to 1974 led by players including Catfish Hunter and Reggie Jackson. The team won an additional three consecutive pennants and the 1989 World Series behind Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, and Dennis Eckersley.

“We are pleased to offer our services to such a well-regarded MLB team,” said Decision Lens CEO John Saaty. “Decision Lens has proved itself in a variety of high-stakes decision settings, from sports to commercial to government applications. We’re looking forward to providing an assist to the A’s this season.”

This is not Decision Lens’ first foray into sports and player selection. The company was chosen by the Green Bay Packers football franchise to support the scouting of draft picks in the team’s last season.

Recently recognized by Gartner Group as a “Cool Vendor” in the emerging field of collaborative decision making software, Decision Lens has grown at a 90%+ annual growth rate since 2005. In July the company was listed by Washington Business Journal as one of the top 25 small technology companies in the Washington metropolitan area. Inc. magazine list ranks Decision Lens among the fastest-rising software companies nationally.

The company serves numerous well-known national and international commercial clients including Petrobras, Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer, Corporate Executive Board, and the NFL, among other organizations. Decision Lens software also is used widely throughout the federal government and across the Intelligence Community, with clients in the US Navy, the Joint Staff and CENTCOM.
