Silicon Valley analytics software firm FICO today announced that Xpress Mosel, the most flexible analytic orchestration, optimization modeling and programming language, is now open to connect to any solver, and is free to use. With this release, anyone can now create optimization models to solve problems more efficiently and make better business decisions based on data.

“FICO is deeply committed to advancing the field of mathematical optimization,” said Oliver Bastert, Ph.D., vice president of optimization product management, FICO. “From the boardroom to the classroom, Xpress Mosel brings significant benefits to any optimization project, which is why we wanted to make it publicly accessible. Now anyone can employ the same technology that optimizes operations for global brands such as Southwest Airlines, Honeywell, and Nestle.”

As the core of all FICO Xpress Optimization solutions, Xpress Mosel serves as the glue that connects business users with data and advanced machine learning/artificial intelligence capabilities. It enables users to rapidly develop and deploy optimization solutions that solve complex, real-world business and customer engagement challenges. Now, by enabling open connections to third-party solvers beyond the FICO® Xpress Solver, optimization professionals may choose their solver technology based on their specific problem characteristics or personal preferences.

Unlike other solutions on the market, Xpress Mosel allows for every single aspect of the model to be developed and maintained within its development environment.
