In the report Gartner states: “optimization is a prescriptive analytics approach used to solve complex decision problems that involve conflicting objectives and constraints, making the best use of limited resources.” While awareness of this approach has traditionally been limited in corporate BI and analytics teams, increased awareness about the benefits of optimization is driving adoption. For instance, a related Gartner report, Use Cases for an Enterprise Supply Chain Modeling Platform, highlights how companies are already using advanced analytics platforms to explore options and choose scenarios tailored to their strategy and business objectives. Interviews with AIMMS, as well as three AIMMS customers (BP, JBS and Papyrus), contributed to this report, which included benefits of using modeling platforms, lessons learned and recommendations.
According to Gartner, AIMMS’ key differentiator is that “its platform is built to easily create and publish optimization applications. It offers a browser-based platform for instant publishing, deployment and collaboration on optimization-based and non-optimization-based applications and proofs of concept throughout the enterprise combined with development tools to create optimization solutions in line with the business problems.” This provides users with a fully integrated model and application development environment, which includes productivity tools, an open Web UI visualization standard, and multiple solvers.
The flexible AIMMS platform can be used for network optimization, planning & scheduling, risk mitigation, cost to serve segmentation and much more. AIMMS clients such as Nike, Air Liquide and Shell have saved or avoided billions of dollars in costs and significantly reduced carbon emissions through the use of the company’s optimization technology.
AIMMS CEO Gijs Dullaert said: “We are thrilled to be recognized by Gartner as a key software provider. After being previously selected as a Cool Vendor in the space, we feel this is a noteworthy acknowledgement for us and the great accomplishments of our customers.”
