  • Patent number: 8336078
    Abstract: An actor is associated with a role, a policy type is associated with the role, and a role scope is associated with the role. One or more values are received for one or more corresponding context parameters associated with the actor. A request for access to a resource is received from the actor. A policy instance is determined based on the policy type and the one or more values for the one or more corresponding context parameters associated with the actor. One or more actor-role scope values are determined based on the role scope and the one or more values for the one or more corresponding context parameters associated with the actor. A response to the request is determined based on the policy instance and the actor-role scope values.

  • Patent number: 7630929
    Abstract: A method for selecting among taxable accounts, non-deductible tax-deferred accounts, deductible tax-deferred accounts, and tax-exempt accounts from which to withdraw funds to minimize tax consequences prioritizes withdrawal from taxable accounts and non-deductible tax-deferred accounts over withdrawal from deductible tax-deferred accounts and tax-exempt accounts. The method also prioritizes between taxable accounts and non-deductible tax-deferred accounts by comparing (i) a future after-tax liquidation value of assets held in taxable and non-deductible tax-deferred accounts assuming withdrawals are made from the taxable accounts prior to a withdrawal from the non-deductible tax-deferred accounts and (ii) a future after-tax liquidation value of assets held in taxable and non-deductible tax-deferred accounts assuming withdrawals are made from the non-deductible tax-deferred accounts prior to a withdrawal from the taxable accounts.

  • Patent number: 7437326
    Abstract: A securities trading simulation method and system that is capable of performing a series of simulated securities trades of a security using actual or potential market data to obtain distribution of simulated trade prices of the security. The distribution of simulated trade prices may then be used in a number of ways, including to measure the quality of an actual trade, to estimate the opportunity available for a security, to estimate the fair value of a derivative security, or to otherwise characterize the volatility and momentum behavior of securities.

  • Publication number: 20080109365
    Abstract: Described are methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer program products for providing customizable authentication for service provisioning. A first user is enabled to customize an authentication system associated with a service. Customizing the authentication system includes defining a first executable authentication rule for a second user and a second executable authentication rule for a third user. The second executable authentication rule is different from the first executable authentication rule. The second user is different from the third user. The first executable authentication rule is employed for determining access by the second user to the service. The second executable authentication rule is employed for determining access by the third user to the service.

  • Publication number: 20080095355
    Abstract: A predictive call routing system that includes a real-time decision engine to receive information about a customer and identify a skill that is useful for providing service to the caller. The decision engine identifies the skill by generating scores for a plurality of statistical models using the statistical models and parameters associated with the caller, each statistical model representing a correlation between a subset of parameters arid an action that may be performed or requested to be performed by the caller, the score for each statistical model being generated using the statistical model and the subset of parameters associated with the statistical model, and identifies a skill based on the scores. The system includes a call router to route a call from the customer to a representative who has the skill.
