Core Benefits

Solve the toughest problems

Increase business value

Deliver optimized decisions quickly

Solve the toughest problems

FICO® Xpress Optimization Suite offers powerful and versatile solvers to help you model with greater accuracy and solve highly complex, real-world problems. It provides a wide array of sophisticated, robust optimization algorithms for solving large-scale linear problems and mixed integer problems as well as non-linear problems.

Increase business value

FICO® Xpress Optimization Suite enables businesses to rapidly deploy optimization models as powerful applications using FICO® Optimization Modeler. Optimization Modeler lets teams work in a collaborative environment with interactive visualization and an interface designed for the business user to work with models in business terms. Analysts and analytic teams can use prebuilt solution templates to access a vast array of algorithms to reduce time-to-market and increase business value.  

Deliver optimized decisions quickly

Within each FICO® Xpress Optimization Suite component are the most sophisitcated modeling and analytic techniques for leveraging today's high-performance multi-CPU, multi-sourced and multi-threaded processing environments. This allows Xpress to take advantage of modern CPU architectures to process millions of variables at great speed and scalability.
