Optimize machine learning decisions

IBM Decision Optimization for Data Science Experience helps data science teams capitalize on the power of prescriptive analytics within IBM Data Science Experience.

The solution lets teams combine optimization and machine learning techniques with model management, deployment and other data science capabilities to develop optimal solutions that   improve operational efficiency. Watch this webinar to learn how Decision Optimization complements Machine Learning techniques, evaluating millions of possibilities to find the best solution.

What can CPLEX Optimizer do for businesses?

Model business issues mathematically and solve them with IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimizer's powerful algorithms to produce precise and logical decisions. IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimizer's mathematical programming technology enables decision optimization for improving efficiency, reducing costs, and increasing profitability.

CPLEX Optimizer provides flexible, high-performance mathematical programming solvers for linear programming, mixed integer programming, quadratic programming, and quadratically constrained programming problems. These solvers include a distributed parallel algorithm for mixed integer programming to leverage multiple computers to solve difficult problems.

Find the best solution from among billions of alternatives for business decisions such as:

  • What is the best plan for my factory to meet the demand for finished products while minimizing machine setup costs and factoring in scheduled arrivals of raw materials?
  • How to optimally assign marketing campaigns to customers by considering predictions around customers’ propensity to respond and maximize expected purchases while fitting the budget constraints?
