Update on Sept 6 2013: slides and replay for this presentation are available in our developerWorks community.
For those who missed my EURO-INFORMS talk here is a replay in the context of our virtual user group series. It follow presentations on topics such as latest CPLEX release, or constraint programming.
The presentation focus is on how to make business people use optimization more. I'll review various issues discussed in this blog, and more, as well as potential ways to address them. This builds and expand on the presentation I made for the Or Complete webinar earlier this year.

Session Topic: Technical Lessons Learned While Selling Optimization To Business Users
Mathematical optimization is IT's best kept secret. It is quite surprising that a technology that can achieve extraordinary return on investment
isn’t used more. This talk will review a series of obstacles to pervasive use of optimization by business users. We will also review possible
answers and best practices. In turn these may lead to new research directions to make OR tools easier to consume by business users.
IBM ILOG Optimization Virtual User Group Meetings provide you with updated and useful information about our products and how you can get the best value for your organization from our optimization technology and solutions.
These meetings are being held electronically with presentations by our product management and development subject matter experts. The sessions will run for approximately one hour, with about 45 minutes of presentation material and 15 minutes for open questions and answers. Our goal is to provide a forum for you to:
• make smarter decisions
