Why IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio is the best choice for making decisions
Proven optimization technology with more than 25 years experience
Choose a provider with decades of proven expertise in optimization technology. The prestigious Edelman Prize is given each year to the best practitioner project in operations research. Edelman finalists have used IBM CPLEX Optimizer four times more than any other optimization technology to build innovative solutions for solving difficult challenges.
Provides a comprehensive end-to-end solution for solving complex problems
From integrating with IBM SPSS Modeler predictive analytics engine, to running optimization algorithms on cloud, to allowing for user collaboration and powerful visualizations in an intuitive user interface, IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio provides a comprehensive end-to-end solution for even the most complex challenges.
Enables development and deployment of optimization models quickly and accurately
Use OPL, an algebraic modeling language that makes it easier to understand and see constraints, goals and costs. Choose from a large set of interfaces, programming languages or deployment scenarios. Deploy in Java, Python, .NET, C and C++ or with a client/server architecture. Use built-in development tools for debugging, profiling, tuning and conflict detection. Enjoy total flexibility for modeling with a compact and expressive OPL, and an IDE with diverse model development services that no other organization provides.
Leading organizations from various industries across the world use IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio to achieve better outcomes. Here are some examples: A global logistics provider creates its next-generation logistics management platform. An arc welding systems and power source manufacturer in Italy reduces inventory by 15 percent and cuts lost orders by 70 percent. A financial services company helps banks reduce cross-shipping fees by 63 percent.
Technically, CPLEX is very easy to deploy and to implement into the techniques we were developing in our framework. So that was key in our decision.
Birome Holo Ba, PhD
Cofounder and CSO
You can’t just write regular programming code for it. You’ve got to model each of these things in an equation, and you’ve got to get that equation balanced and optimized. What CPLEX does is it actually solves this thing.
CTO and Principal Architect
The main advantage of the IBM technology for us as a startup was fast time-to-market, as well as its ability to handle many different types of variables and objectives, control numerous parameters, and handle infeasible problems.
