Solvers are a source of an invisible kind of magic. When they’re absent, we notice. So what are they, how do you use one, and why do you need one?
Building decision models into binaries is a beautiful thing. It eliminates a lot of sticky deployment processes and gets you to production faster.
The next era of optimization isn't about building a better solver. It's about collaborative, opinionated tooling that empowers teams to move faster with less confusion and more access to the decision technology ecosystem.
In the beginning there was linear programming. It spawned decades of similarly-shaped solver offshoots. Decision diagrams break with this classic paradigm and offer new opportunities to solve common optimization problems.
Is optimization a solved problem? How does it fit into modern business models such as on-demand delivery? What does it mean to model like an operator? We’ll ask Dr. Hoffman these questions and more.
Nextmv is removing the roadblocks for going from optimization problem definition to production environment. This makes optimization easier for operations researchers and more accessible to developers. See what this looks like and watch a demo.
