LINDO Teams with Opalytics to Deploy Analytics Applications

Boston, MA. – June 29nd, 2017 – Opalytics, a provider of an analytics platform to empower operations, and LINDO Systems,  a leading provider of optimization software since 1981, are teaming up to provide a platform to deploy applications developed with LINDO’s solvers and tools.

The Opalytics Cloud Platform (OCP) was developed in order to create applications that use advanced analytics solvers. The solvers cover different capabilities including simulation, machine learning and optimization. This enables fast and effective deployment of analytics so that business users can participate in the prototyping stage and use it in their work.

To support this process, Opalytics has developed a data library, ticdat, which facilitates separation of model from data and enables rich data integrity checks.  When plugged into OCP, a custom algorithm comes alive for business users through Opalytics Instant Applications – immediate transformation of a solver into a professional-grade, intuitive application.

Opalytics recently added support for LINDO’s LINGO, a comprehensive tool designed to make building and solving Linear, Nonlinear (convex & nonconvex/Global), Quadratic, Quadratically Constrained, Second Order Cone, Semi-Definite, Stochastic, and Integer optimization models faster, easier and more efficient. LINGO provides a completely integrated package that includes a powerful language for expressing optimization models, a full featured environment for building and editing problems, and a set of fast built-in solvers.

“We are excited to provide our users with the means to quickly deploy their solvers.” said LINDO Systems co-founders Kevin Cunningham and Linus Schrage.  “The innovative Opalytics cloud platform and support for LINGO will enable our users to immediately deploy their own custom applications so that their business users and customers can take advantage of their work.”

The Opalytics Cloud Platform provides the ability to quickly deploy custom applications and take advantage of a wide range of built-in functionality.

“Supporting LINDO users is part of our plan to provide frictionless support for analytics solvers in particular around optimization,” said David Simchi-Levi, Chairman and co-founder of Opalytics.  “They can take advantage of our platform and expertise in developing applications and deploy their own custom analytics rapidly and reliably in a repeatable fashion on our platform.”
