Introduction, Recent Optimization User Cases

Decision optimization is a powerful tool for extracting the maximum business value from your strategic, tactical, financial,and operational planning processes. Yet decision optimization is still relatively under-utilized compared to other analytics techniques such as predictive and exploratory analytics, even though it has been shown to provide a competitive advantage over non-optimized planning, scheduling, and other decision management solutions. In this session, we explain in business terms how to recognize an opportunity for optimization. We will share a number of customer case studies and describe how the IBM Decision Optimization portfolio can bring value to your business.
