IBM Decision Optimization is a prescriptive analytics solution that enables organizations in commerce, manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, telco, government and other highly data-intensive industries to make better decisions and achieve business goals by solving complex optimization problems. IBM Decision Optimization solutions provide features that help create optimization models either using general programming language APIs like Python, Java, or using OPL to solve the breadth of optimization models using proven and powerful optimization engines. IBM Decision Optimization is an integral part of IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) so users can benefit from all data science features of DSX like access to machine learning models, the ability to pass output from predictive analytics to the Decision Optimization engine, access to open notebook features, visualization features and data connectivity options from the DSX platform.
AMPL’s (TM) modeling language and system give you an exceptionally powerful and natural tool for developing and deploying the complex optimization models that arise in diverse applications. AMPL lets you formulate problems the way you think of them, while providing access to the advanced algorithmic alternatives that you need to find good solutions fast. It features an integrated scripting language for automating analyses and building iterative optimization schemes; access to spreadsheet and database files; and application programming interfaces for embedding within larger systems. AMPL works with over 30 powerful optimization engines including all of the most widely used large-scale solvers.
Cardinal Operations uses big data to provide solutions for firms under complex decision scenarios. The company aims to close the loop in the decision chain - from data collection, pattern analysis, all the way to the final decision. Solutions include supply chain management, pricing and revenue management, optimization and machine learning algorithm suite, and fintech.
Optimization never happens in isolation, but is always intertwined with data considerations, other forms of analytics, and the ability to explore and explain models and solutions. That’s why SAS provides optimization as just one of a set of integrated capabilities spanning from data integration, through descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics, to visualization, exploration, and reporting. OPTMODEL from SAS enables you to build and solve optimization models using linear, network, mixed integer, quadratic, nonlinear, and constraint programming techniques. Local search optimization is also provided. Algorithms, including a decomposition algorithm for LP and MILP, focus on scalability and use parallel processing extensively.
