IBM Decision Optimization Center provides a configurable platform to support business decision makers with analytics to solve their toughest planning and scheduling challenges. It can reduce the effort, time and risk associated with creating tailored solutions that improve business outcomes. IBM Decision Optimization Center enables line-of-business managers to make smarter, better decisions and improve return on investment (ROI) by combining massive data resources with business analytics and optimization tools.

IBM Decision Optimization Center enables you to:

See the information you need

  • Validate and implement decisions based on analytics.
  • Get practical results and drill-down for more detailed information.
  • Select the views you want to see. Work with numerous tabular and graphical views, including pivot tables and Gantt charts.
  • Define alternative what-if scenarios to test your decisions in an uncertain environment.
  • Share scenarios more easily for collaborative decision making based on unified and consistent data.

Accelerate development

  • Work with an open, standards-based architecture to help reduce the effort, time and risk associated with custom application development.
  • Map enterprise databases into application data tables with greater ease.
  • Configure sophisticated charts and graphs using prebuilt templates.
  • Use Optimization Programming Language (OPL), an IBM transparent modeling language, to specify the targets, limits and choices related to your business problem.
  • Extend standard views and data transformations with custom Java code when necessary. Use and automatically maintain an object-oriented model of your application data.

Choose the deployment architecture

  • Choose from stand-alone workstation, collaborative client/server or hybrid environments.
  • Connect to enterprise data resources and execution systems more easily.

Use CPLEX optimizer

  • Work with IBM enterprise-class optimization solvers for powerful performance.
  • Take advantage of the speed, high reliability and robustness of CPLEX optimizers to rapidly find the optimal solutions for your planning and scheduling, supply chain and asset management problems.
  • Make practical use of sophisticated analytics that have resulted from years of research and development by highly trained mathematicians.

Use one platform with industry-specific resources

  • Use one platform or “center” for many solutions.
  • Build and deploy multiple decision support applications using a consistent architecture and common design methodology.
  • Take advantage of a growing library of industry-specific IBM assets to speed development of tailored solutions.

The latest IBM Decision Optimization Center enhancements support:

  • Application developers who need flexible architecture that delivers optimization across many business functions.
  • Business decision-makers who need a common portal or “center” from which they can select and build optimization models and validate them before deployment in a cloud environment.

Key enhancements include:

  • Performance and scalability: Lower latency in the business user interface helps improve the user experience when working with large data sets.
  • Rapid and flexible application development: The use of scripting helps reduce the time and effort required to customize data models and views.
  • Business interface: The ability to define business user roles and rights for authorizing views and tasks can better align application workflows with organizational business processes.
  • Ease of use: Enhancements to the Gantt chart component enable business users to move activities interactively within a schedule.
  • Flexible architecture: A basic representational state transfer (REST) application programming interface (API) helps facilitate application web deployment, especially for integration requirements such as data access and job control.
  • Administrator console: A console enables easier server job management.
